2011 Showcase - Hillside Retreat

A European-California influenced Custom Home sits on a hill side with an incredible sunset view of Saratoga Lake. This exterior is finished with reclaimed Cypress, Stucco and Stone. While inside, the gourmet kitchen, dining and living areas, custom office/lounge and Witt designed and built yoga studio create a perfect space for entertaining and relaxation. Nestle in the sun soaked veranda or unwind in the spa-like master bath; this home has it all. Photos by Randall Perry Photography.

Bathroom sink - I'm seeking a "big" square sink. I recently stayed at the contemporary resort at Disney and liked the large square shallow sink. Anyone know a brand who makes one?

how to design closet for Christmas tree to come out at Christmas in family room - i am trying to draw house plans and i want my christmas tree to be able to stay up all year and just roll out of room behind family room wall at Christmas, it can be bookcase, just a door that slides back or something that lays down and it rolls out on, but it needs to be a opening of at least 6 foot wide and 12 foot high and i want the storage room that it come out of to open on the other side just like a storage room or bedroom

Rustica Hardware
That's a great idea! You may want to consider barn doors for that. The doors can be made and painted to fit with the decor of your room and if done right will blend in. See our options here: http://rusticahardware.com/barn-door-hardware/

To the left, as you can see in this photo, there are normal hinges. Undeneat the part of the bookcase that moves is a 'castor wheel' support for added smoothness while opening and closing and for support of the weight of the bookcase.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to For the Kids: Secret Forts Indoors
A secret bookcase entrance is always a fun way to access a special private fort.
Scheer & Co. added this to How to Jazz Up a Solid-Front Door
If you have a somewhat boring-ish passageway that you'd like to put to use, make it a secret bookcase. You can work thick walls to your advantage this way, or you can furr out the wall a bit (or even part of the wall, as seen in this photo) to add a little depth.
