Above: The island is fitted with a sink, dishwasher, and induction cooktop. Additional storage is supplied by a cabinet wall pre-fabricated by Colorado-based CabParts that Marie and Todd painted (Farrow & Ball’s Strong White) and installed. In lieu of a range, they opted for a wall oven. The ladder on the wall leads to one of the two lofts at either end of the house.
Really like the mix of seamed black metal with wood and concrete - elegant, muscular - and how the dimensions of the wood screen match the garage, including the height. [Maybe it's possible to mill the red cedar on the property to use for] color-blocked sections of wood exterior mixed with black metal siding, particularly on the south and west sides that receive full sun year-round, and/or to use as a screen giving privacy to a front porch as shown here. The only downside would be losing the northern light to the living room through the bay window, but two skylights are planned
