26th modern-kitchen


An Italianate Victorian Noe Valley home is restored, transformed and doubled in area, within its original footprint. A complete re-engineering of the 1st story (allowing 3 new bedrooms and a bath), the connection of 2nd floor public spaces, and the introduction of a new internal stair, maximize the potential of this otherwise modest house.

General Contractor: Bay Area Metro Builder

Sorry to bother you again. Can you tell me the brand of the stain used on the Dug Fir? Thank you so much.

We did not specific stain, so I'm sorry I can't be of help. I know Minwax offers a nice walnut which if too dark can be custom mixed with other colors in the same line. Floor tinting is an art, especially if you are trying to match an adjacent color, best to experiment on scrap pcs before applying to the actual floor boards.
