Vineyard Home

Surrounded by permanently protected open space in the historic winemaking area of the South Livermore Valley, this house presents a weathered wood barn to the road, and has metal-clad sheds behind. The design process was driven by the metaphor of an old farmhouse that had been incrementally added to over the years. The spaces open to expansive views of vineyards and unspoiled hills.

Hi Jared - the ceiling height on the each floor is nine feet, so the side walls on the exterior of the house are about 19 feet.

All the windows in the wood-sheathed part of the house are Sierra Pacific wood windows with aluminum cladding. The windows and big multi-slider doors on the metal-sheathed part of the house are thermally-broken full aluminum by Solar Innovations. They have a nice thin, crisp frame profile.

Siding - First, this home is absolutely stunning. Just beautiful. I'm curious as to what material was used for siding? Thank you.

I agree but we live in the rainy northwest. Wouldn't the siding rot a lot sooner?

Definitely more of an issue there than in hot Livermore. You could look at things like garapa or cypress if you wanted them to age naturally, or just protect it with a sealant. But be prepared to re-seal. A clear or even pigmented sealer requires more frequent re-application than paint does.

What kind of wood is this and is it stained or painted? Love the color combination

The wood is western red cedar. It is unfinished, vertical tongue-and-groove boards. It is turning a beautiful silvery-grey that melds nicely with the landscape. Glad you like the combination.

This roof may be mill finish, but kind of hard to tell. Either way, it's lighter appearance does replicate having a mill finish roof and dark soffits and facia. Notice that the drip edge is the lighter roof color, but the facia is dark. If our plan is to paint our facia and soffits a color to match our window frames, and to have our gutters bronze, then we should have our drip edge bronze.
