Home & Garden Features the Klaubert Home

We're pleased to have another project featured in the Home & Garden section of the SLO Tribune, thanks to Tribune writer Rebecca Juritec and our wonderful clients, the Klauberts.

This project was a major remodel to a single-family home located in Arroyo Grande, CA. The form of the existing structure had some Scandinavian lines, so we decided to move towards the direction of Scandinavian Modern.

The home had existing dark wood shingle siding, which made the home look very heavy and woodsy--something we did not feel fit the aura of the place. Using cement board siding in various widths to add character to the expansive facade also provided some fire protection. California Redwood was used on all exposed eaves for contrast. The windows were enlarged and made perfectly square to emphasize the Scandinavian style.

 Special care and consideration to the local landscape was taken for this large remodel project. The elder oak trees strewn about the property were an important part of the design, as they provide shade for the property and a home for the various species of local birds.

The interior was made up off many small rooms and was very dark and uninviting. Removing walls and installing steel beams to carry the load opened up the interior floor plan. The result has given the home amazing views of the surrounding hills and oak trees.

 Another great feature highlighted here is the mitered corner window which allows a seamless view out of the corner. The island serves as storage, a place to grab a quick bite and also hides an additional marble topped rolling island perfect for baking preparations.
