Remodel: Rustic Chic – Fireplace

The stone is up.  And now you can see the previous mentioned mantel piece. Here’s a detail of where the stone meets the Trestlewood beams. In other news, the master bath is being tiled and hardwood floor installed.  Give us a couple more weeks and we’ll be complete with Phase I of this project. Jamie

Remodel: Rustic Chic – Master Bedroom

This room is lovely.  And it’s going to be spectacular.  The Trestlewood beams are in place, adding real personality to the other wise white sheetrocked room.  The fasteners are practically invisible.  Through those sliding wood doors, there is a magnificent view of Tiger Mountain, as seen over the parcel’s 20 acres.  The fireplace is in

Project Update: West Seattle Contemporary
