Project completed spring of 1994


The completed project is an approximately 5,000 square-foot residence which includes two
studios and a small apartment. This is a renovation and addition to an existing 1920′ s Sears and
Roebuck “kit” house. I was the Owner, Architect, General Contractor, Carpenter (and several
other subcontractors) for this project. The work was done in stages from 1986 through 1994. The
primary structure is wood frame on a brick foundation. The exterior material is concrete stucco
and wood trim. There is a great deal of highly specialized custom work inside which includes
plaster domes, carved wood capitals, barrel-vaulted ceilings, glass-block floors, various gargoyles
and monsters and other surprises in wood, ceramic and stone.
