The Homebuilder's Association is well represented at the Dirty Boots Tour!
A Cut Above Siding installs the rear upper deck siding. We are the ONLY residential contractor they side for. My logic is the people who repair all the mistakes and problems will be the best to properly install the siding.

With the sheetrock in and wonderboard down here comes the tile, cabinets and trim details.

We are using a 1" thick glazed terracotta tile in the wine room, thick and chunky.
The sight line from the outdoor room to the great room fireplace is almost 80 feet, open yet intimate.
Kohler's new 6' spa tub with waterfall, we are the first builder in the country to install this tub first introduced at IBS (International Building Show) in Chicago this past spring. There are numerous new fixtures and lines in Sonoma.
Base Cabinets for the Butler's Kitchen...
I was teasing Mike about sanding the top of the cabinets where no one would ever see them. His response, "I see them".
Indoor/outdoor room fireplace with tile flooring and Jeldwen BiParting doors.

The bright open Utility room, every room in the house except for one bath has exterior windows!!!

The NEW Trex deck with blind mounting (no surface nailing).

View of the lower court, planter beds and firepit area. Southern exposure and privacy.

Aluminum garage doors with polycarbonate glass, good match to the windows and let plenty of light into the garage without compromising security and privacy.
Upper and lowers for the butler's kitchen. The upper cabinets will be lit and fronted with seeded glass.

The master shower is a spa experience! We are using Kohler's DTV valve system that controls 6 outlets. We are having rain shower heads, regular and hand held heads and 3 body jets all of which are programmable for the individual user.
A good shot of the board/batt siding by Hardiplank. This concrete based board will withstand the roughest weather and require less maintenance.

Thanks for looking, it won't be long now.
