@notadumbblond - this is California, particularly LA. Earthquakes are not uncommon, so it's a perfectly valid concern. Though I'm sure there were building codes that were adhered to.

One day I hope to find a house where someone has paid a carpenter this handsomely. The ceilings! Heavens, it's beautiful.

That little powder room is beautiful. I want it. (Bit disturbed by the 'gun shells tribute' to the 'virile family member' though. Yikes.)

@ urbanexotic - it's a California thing. It's fairly mild in climate here, it never gets really cold or too hot, and the rain is moderate, so you can have laundry outside. A lot of us do, not uncommon.

I am not sure I like the extent to which they remodeled,...however, there are a lot of details here that really make sense and that I am going to file in my memory banks for future use. I particularly like the outside shower...and the idea of the washer and dryer being accessed from outside. This could solve a lot of problems for small house refurbishments.

Gorgeous remodel! Very homey and airy.

I am amazed that people think it is so inconvenient to do laundry from an outdoor location. I carry mine to the detached garage and never thought twice about it. I was wondering why our contractor made such a fuss about having the laundry closer. I guess most people haven't ever been poor enough to have to lug their clothes to the launder mat. I am very grateful for my outdoor access laundry.

Also if you look at the landscaping map, it shows a couple of tent campsites. It would be nice to have an outdoor washer/dryer for the guests who are tenting on the site. Great idea to make campsites for guests!
