    How deep is the skylight well and is the skylight well flared or straight? I'm designing a small laundry and want to add a skylight - just trying to figure out best way to do it. Our skylight well will be fairly deep - probably 5 ft.

    The skylight in the picture is more like 15" deep, and is straight up. If you have a deep skylight well you may want to use the same, small skylight but flare the opening to bring the light into the room better.

    do you remember the model name of the cabinets? ikea's website is not the most user friendly :)

    IKEA has changed their cabinet line completely, so the old line we used, Akurum, is no longer available. I don't know the name of the new line yet, since it was just rolled out this month. I would recommend looking at "kitchen" on their website, since these were kitchen cabinets. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    the small appliance is just a Cuisinart soft-serve ice cream maker that's being kept close but stored in where it's out of site from the otherwise uncluttered adjacent kitchen...

    And out of site of kids who want to make ice cream all the time too, right? :-P

    This room is 5'-wide, so the counter is 5' long. It stands out from the wall as needed, but approximately 3' (that covers most of today's larger machines including some space behind for ducts and pipes).

    This one was custom-made by the contractor, and has a Caesarstone countertop.

    These are the original 2x8 V-groove tongue-and-groove decking boards that actually make up the entire roof and ceiling structure for Eichler houses. Above those boards there is insulation and then a roof membrane. No attic!

    The white bar you see directly under the countertop is a piece of structural wood, and there is also a plywood surface below the countertop material.

    Laundry rooms don't have to be big to work. This one is about 5x7

Photo by Mariko ReedLike the previous example, and as with many Eichlers, the front door opens to an atrium surrounded mostly by glass. The tree promises to provide more shade as it grows.Natural light is an important part of Eichler homes. Here, a skylight brightens the laundry room.

Ditto the adjacent laundry room, which has its own skylight — one of the benefits of having a flat roof without an attic.

Don't care for this. Need to elevate washer and dryer. Want trim on sides and cabinets flush to counter.

Klopf Architecture: cabinets are from IKEA, and the Caesarstone countertop through IKEA; color is called Haze. Their old line called Akurum is no longer available [these were kitchen cabinets] How is the counter reinforced? The white bar you see directly under the countertop is a piece of structural wood, and there is also a plywood surface below the countertop material.

Are the ceiling panels throughout the house wood or other material - what paint finish was used to achieve smooth and semi-glossy effect. Destination Eichler, LLC / Eichler ceilings were originally made from REDWOOD BOARDS; it looks like these were kept original and painted. Klopf Architecture: In some homes where the boards are not painted, matching them can be an issue. And even if they're painted, the original board size was larger than today's size. For instance, a 2 x 8 tongue and groove decking board back then was 1 3/4" thick and a full 8" wide, while today it's only 1 1/2" thick and 7.25" wide!
