Geyserville, California

This is a complete makeover of an existing ranch house and now consists of a single, simple gable roof with dormers on the east and west sides to afford light and view to a full length loft-library. The majority of the heavy framing is comprised of Douglas fir tree trunks with exposed bolted connections. The fireplace stone was excavated from the hillsides surrounding the vineyard. The exterior glass is shaded with a combination of existing oak trees, exterior sun shades, and a wrap-around covered porch. Traditional shiplap siding, redwood peeler poles, and gray metal roofing are used to ease the visual impact on the landscape.
