if you read the 12 day recap of our honeymoon you’ll know that we fell in love with the bay area, so it’s a given that i’m obsessed with today’s transformation. brian farnsworth of verdigris is back with another major renovation, this time in tiburon california. the structurally iffy 1950s ranch home was in poor shape when farnsworth stumbled upon it, lacking heat, hot water and a working kitchen or bath. it did however boast views of the san francisco bay and sat on a happy little lot, a rough in the diamond, if you will. rather than monkey with the footprint and deal with extended lead-times with the city design review, verdigris was able to rework the existing home. they enclosed the carport, added exterior windows and doors, and majorly opened up the floor plan. finishes, appliances and fixtures include jeld wen sliding doors, mohawk engineered uniclic wood floors, ann sacks tile, ikea kitchen cabinets and viking professional appliances.
outside, the lot was re-graded, the diseased monterey pine trees were removed, and fresh landscaping was planted. verdigris also designed the new modern western red cedar fence to match the home’s siding. in addition extensive drainage, landscaping and irrigation systems were installed underneath the brand new salt finished concrete driveway and rear patio. thus making the home a diamond amongst diamonds.
