Cook

The Cook house at The Sea Ranch was designed to meet the needs an active family with two young children, who wanted to take full advantage of coastal living. As The Sea Ranch reaches full build-out, the major design challenge is to create a sense of shelter and privacy amid an expansive meadow and between neighboring houses. A T-shaped floor plan was positioned to take full advantage of unobstructed ocean views and create sheltered outdoor spaces . Windows were positioned to let in maximum natural light, capture ridge and ocean views , while minimizing the sight of nearby structures and roadways from the principle spaces. The interior finishes are simple and warm, echoing the surrounding natural beauty. Scuba diving, hiking, and beach play meant a significant amount of sand would accompany the family home from their outings, so the architect designed an outdoor shower and an adjacent mud room to help contain the outdoor elements. Durable finishes such as the concrete floors are up to the challenge. The home is a tranquil vessel that cleverly accommodates both active engagement and calm respite from a busy weekday schedule.

What is the material of the floors and the finish used? - The floors look like polished concrete with epoxy finish but I am not sure. How were the floors made? Thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Loft ladder. A lofted space like this has tons of potential — extra room for the kids, a spare office area or just helpful storage. Whatever you end up using a loft for, make sure the access is safe and attractive. Tip: Loft ladders should have hand rails at the top for safety— the recommended length of the top rail is 24 inches. Check the building regulations in your area and confirm with your loft ladder manufacturer before ordering.

If we can access loft space upstairs, it would be neat to have some kind of access to it. It would be nice additional play space for kids. Not a necessity, but cool if it worked in budget.
