Closets to Go garage cabinetry with display and apron sink, great look with the floor.
Landscaping is being installed by Innovative Landscape, real professionals.
Darin Park, project supervisor showing our final inspection, there is a special note from the county building inspector "NICE JOB". I find it amazing, Darin's original completion date was July 28th, one day off!

All the custom railings by Zion are in and approved, great job guys.

Carpet is installed Thursday and final clean Friday. Furniture and decor start on Saturday. We should be wrapped by mid week next week and the fine detailing starts.



Now the fun stuff starts, adding the layers, textures and colors. Sonoma is a canvas for the artist's work. Ronda Divers, Robin Damore and others will be filling the home with rich colors and original art. Butters Gallery and others will be displaying their collections as well.

These are the grates for the tile floor, they are backed with metal and then water jetted to cut the openings, very precise and another custom touch.
Kohler's apron sink in the Butler's Kitchen, another unique feature of Sonoma.
The Great Room Wall with the mantel installed, it is cast stone; massive yet to the right scale.
3 CM is doing the granite slabs, beautiful stone. This a piece for the kitchen counter. We used a honed surface rather than highly polished to emphasize the soft feeling of Sonoma.

This is one of the hardest working painting crews I have ever used. Eric Hernanz Painting has skillfully done the finishes.
Who said working on a street house isn't fun!!!

Kohler's new laundry sink set on a granite top with the light flooding in, welcome.

This hood was fabricated by one of our metal workers, the base coat paint is on and now will be custom finished by an artist to give it texture and color. Electrolux European appliances are throughout the home. This is the dual fuel (gas and electric) range.

Additional appliance include a second convection oven, microwave, warming drawer and espresso machine.

Each bathroom has it's own character, very interesting and decorative use of tiles and granite.
Activity room kitchen and bar including refrigerator drawers, ice maker, drawer microwave and dishwasher drawer. Easy and convenient to the Projection TV room and billard room.

Again, every day there are many changes. You can to to my SMUGMUG page, at
to see ALL the photos of the construction of Sonoma, about 700 so far!



Mike, John and Duane setting the shelving for the indoor/outdoor room hood.

Checking the match for the kitchen granite, 3 cm Stone is fabricating all the stone for the home and they are the best example of perfection in this area.
What more can I say, LIGHT!

Grouting the almost 4000 sq. ft. of tile, its a multi man job.
View from the loft, these are the pieces of the cast stone mantle that is being assembled. The stone is custom manufactured to our design pattern, a very unique piece.

Ahhhh, the kitchen island finally arrives. This piece is 18 feet long and almost 7 feet wide, almost a room in itself. It will be topped with the granite in the prior picture with a honed surface reflecting the soft feel of Sonoma.

More light, the patterns provide additional texture.
Admiring the Great Room view....

Keep watching as the parts arrive and complete the wonderful feeling of Sonoma.
