The craftsmen at Park Place are building the furniture quality cabinets. We will be doing both painted and stained cabinets. The stained cabinets are a glazed finish on maple. The quality is unsurpassed.
Mike on the left is in charge of production for Park Place, Chuck is the owner with over 30 years and 16,000 jobs under his artist and perfectionist. Carl on the right is responsible for the construction drawings and plans. He has to make sure everything fits and works together, the smallest detail is never missed.
The architectural shapes and forms are taking shape both on the exterior and interior of Sonoma, each layer gets better and better.
The planter boxes are being placed in the end walls. We are using the planters to filter rainwater from the roof system. They will enclose the lower court and provide privacy and security.
Chuck and Carl laying out the bar countertop, every cabinet is drawn on particle board for a pattern in 1 to 1 scale. The layouts are saved for future design ideas and reproduction of the key design ideas.

Elements such as curved cabinets are unique and show the quality and precision of Park Place's quality and detail. Note the doors are all inset into the frames...everything has to align and balance, plumb and square.
The lower courtyard entrance with pervious pavers that allow the water to drain through into a drainage system that also filters the water and removes it from the storm water system.
Look carefully, I only had a wide angle lens. Mt. St. Helens is just above the red Milgard window tag. You see it, Mt. Ranier and Mt. Adams from all the north facing windows.

The sheetrock forms are mirroring the window detail and rectangular theme carried throughout the house. Recesses and openings provide shadow and detail to the surfaces.

The board/batt siding on the front elevation again emphasizes the rectangular theme and designs throughout the home.

The Great Room wall ready for cabinetry and mantle details with lighted niches. Sun streaming in; open, light, bright and airy in a setting above the clouds.

Openings between the Great Room and Kitchen provide interest and repetition to the shapes. Architectural detail such as this separate the living spaces yet provide connection from space to space. The sight line from the Great Room wall to the outdoor room is over 80 feet!

Lots of changes coming in the next 4 weeks, keep watching.
