Santa Ynez Valley House
Farmhouse design with small second story, sections with cathedral ceilings and a wraparound porch. Master bedroom on ground floor.
Favorite two story farmhouse design with sections of cathedral ceiling and wraparound porch. Light entry on back side second floor.
Favorite farmhouse desing first story floor plan. Site orientation will be key for light entry on second floor offsetting low-light entry from wraparound porch. Swap Utility room with Half Bath.
Porch modification to ground level with natural wood beams and window finishes. Eliminates sub-porch animal entry problems, but need water diversion to keep dry.
Rain-Chain instead of downspouts from gutters. Into smaller sized catchment for irrigation of landscaping.
Example of Interior polished concrete floor without seams for ground floor. A bit too shiny and probably need more neutral/grey tones to balance use of earth tones and wood finishes throughout. Fireplace rock choice will influence color choice.
Family room wall, with secret pass-through to dining room. Also provides bookshelf speaker placement for family room.
Copper Gold - Split Face | M Stone | 6x24 (Hard Limestone) Ledge Stone Panels - $7
Dry Stone for fireplace, to ceiling in Family and Master bedrooms.
Hate the pasted-on rock. But love the wood keeper and ledge for seating. Flat, dry stone wall preferred, with rough wood mantle.
Cool wood stove option if needed for SB County compliance in bedroom. A bit ornate, but would contrast well with more industrial cement floors.
