9 1/2 weeks to go!

Framing is almost done, roof starts Saturday the 31st!  We have begun plumbing and hvac and electrical will begin Monday.  Schedules are tight, cooperation is even tighter.  It never ceases to amaze me the cooperation and assistance our team members exhibit in difficult situations.  We all understand the common goal and how to achieve it.  Street of Dreams homes are examples of the best work our area contractors can exhibit.  To do this in a compressed time frame requires the best of everyone.

This is a view from the library loft over the great room.  Views, views, views...this is one of the best, if not the best view in the city.

Gary Phillips of Vacuflo measuring for the vacuum system, he is offering some new and innovative options for this years home.  A retractable hose under the kitchen sink for those small pick ups, a dust tray for quick sweep ups and improved tools to make the job of keeping Sonoma clean and green!

The stairwell is free standing using steel structural supports.  This allow for the open feeling we are striving for at Sonoma.  With the spectacular window groupings and vistas there is light and openness from every angle.

Mike has been framing with Sapienza and Sons for many years.  His skills are an example for the others on the crew.  Cliff Sapienza is joined by 2 of his sons (who weren't even born when he first started to work with me) and 10 other craftsmen.  Watching them work is viewing a finely tuned machine.

Milgard Windows has supplied a unique design in their windows for Sonoma.  We required a heavy frame in a dark bronze color for the proper accent to the look of Sonoma.  There are over 80 windows!!!!

Imagine this view from your great room, yes, you can only imagine because no other home has such a spectacular setting.  Come experience Sonoma and find your dream!

Again, thanks for looking and following our progress.  We would love to hear from you; please feel free and you are encouraged to comment on Sonoma.  We thrive on these comments and ideas.  Maybe we can incorporate your ideas in this wonderful home.
