    I think back and forth would be best, but we would need to know what you charge. Also we are not quite ready to build just yet.

    would you mind sending me your email address?
    I would prefer taking this off the public thread -- if that is ok.
    And or email me at cschwabe@earthlink.net and I will email you back.
    Thanks,

    Can you tell me the exact color of the painted door? I'd like to use that color on my house. Thank you!

    Hi-
    I am almost certain it is a standard aluminum cladding color by Marvin called wineberry -- all the doors and windows on this project are painted wood at the interior with an aluminum cladding on the exterior. I see I have answered this already- maybe this was a painted door only - but again wineberry is my best bet.
    Thanks,
    Cathy

    Hello-
    follow my web link to the contact/news section and there you will find a live link to these plans for sale through houseplans. the bathroom/laundry was not photographed. The kitchenette - still in process - is to go in the space behind the sliding green door. this is a multi function studio - when used for sleeping - the daybed/couch in the alcove folds out for use. I have a sketch of a slightly expanded version in which I have included a stair to a sleeping loft and included a kitchenette - but it is still sitting in my to do pile to turn into a formal drawing - one of these days I will get to it - and then add it as a variant to the houseplans set.
    thanks for your interest.

    Hi -
    The doors and windows on this project are all aluminum clad wood units by Marvin. They come with the aluminum already painted. Marvin, like many manufacturers, has many standard colors, and then one can always have a custom color applied as well. The interior finish can be primed and or bare wood of various species with a sealer. These came primed.
    Thanks for the question.

    Hi -
    I am not sure I understand this question - if what you are asking is where is this house located, the answer is in Forestville, California.
    Thanks,
    Cathy

    Hi,
    The studio has a full bath combined with laundry. It was built as more of a creative workspace and occasional dwelling rather than as a FT dwelling. A small kitchen was planned for the under-loft area along one wall in the section behind the green door. The couch in the alcove under the tall window becomes a bed.
    Thx
    Cathy

    Hi,

    The windows and doors are by Marvin - they are aluminum clad wood units.

    Thanks for the question,

    Hi,
    The operable windows are in-swinging hoppers and they are 2'-0" tall and 3' - 0" wide.
    Thanks for the question.

8. Photographer David Wakely and writer Sharon Smith loved their small cabin on a hillside near the Russian River in Sonoma County, but wanted more space for guests and creative work. They hired architect Cathy Schwabe to help them expand. The solution was a second cabin inspired by the barns in the region.

Laura Gaskill added this to How to Wash Your HouseSep 3, 2013

Get prepared to pressure wash. If you own your home and plan to use a pressure washer at least once each year, it could be worth it to buy your own. They are not cheap … but they are not cheap to rent, either. If you cannot reach the upper floors of your home on a ladder, consider hiring a pro to do the job. If you are doing it yourself, follow these steps:Soap or no soap? Water alone is enough to get most exteriors clean. If you have mold or mildew, use a specialty house cleaner designed to kill mildew in the pressure washer’s detergent compartment.Choose the right nozzle. Pressure washer nozzles are measured in degrees — those that shoot water in a very narrow area have the strongest spray (zero is the strongest) and should be used very cautiously. For most homes a nozzle with a 40-degree spray should suffice, so start there and work your way down to a 25-degree nozzle if necessary.Secure windows, doors and pets. Make sure dogs (who could be curious about the spray) and children are inside, and close all the windows and doors before getting started. Also put on a pair of safety goggles to protect your eyes from dirt and debris.

Becky Harris added this to 5 Creative Studios and Cabins Right in the BackyardJun 7, 2012

Cathy Schwabe designed this versatile cabin in Northern California to serve as a photography studio, a spot for writers' retreats and a dining room (indoors or out) for large gatherings of family and friends.

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: Modern Studio Inspires CreativityJun 5, 2012

Schwabe nestled the studio into the hillside above the existing two-bedroom cabin. "I was inspired by many things, but the exterior's form was inspired by local Sonoma barns because of their simplicity and practicality," says Schwabe. The studio's small size means a reduced carbon footprint, and Schwabe sited and shaped it to make the most of natural light and ventilation.

John Hill added this to Regional Modern: Northern California ArchitectureNov 7, 2011

Some designs incorporate the vernacular in both form and materials, as exemplified by these final two examples. The regional modernism of Northern California may embrace flat roofs and stucco walls, but this small studio is covered in wood siding and capped by a sloping roof.

Doors seem funny, but curious about the roof and materials

I’m partial to this style. Stack this on top of the bottom blow-out floor. That’s a hella good roof for solar panels as well. The slope of the roof is aimed in the correct direction for the sun, too. Bet you $20 there is a barn door involved in this house
