Wild Parrots
For years while working out in the Telegraph Hill neighborhood of San Francisco I’ve only caught a glimpse of the wild parrots.  I was busy painting the railing and deck of this residence and was able to get this great photo!  A flock of 10 or so parrots landed and began to feast on a bush of red berries cascading down the sloped hillside.

Piedmont: Full Exterior Restoration

This exterior was in need of many repairs, a new roof and a new color scheme. 

To start, the roof went dark grey-done by Premier Roofing.

Next a design-build firm came in and isolated various needed repairs.  Most important was addressing rotten window sash, trim and missing pieces of wood. To keep the house true to it’s original and historic presence, all swinging windows were removed, repaired and reinstalled instead of replaced.  The shutters once removed, were treated for dry rot and realigned.  A number of missing pickets on the fence were replaced, the front door was planed to operate with ease and the fence gates were reset. 

Once the repairs were complete we were able to get on-site and begin pressure washing, removing all the downspouts and shutters and begin breaking down the building.  We scraped all surfaces of the exterior and fully sanded.  Old nail heads were treated for rust, all broken glass was replaced and re-glazed, and were able to get all the double hung windows operating again. The entire house was then fully primed and water proofed. 

The clients were very decisive on their color choices.  After a handful of samples were seen they chose a green for the body to compliment the landscape with a deep brick red for the front door to tie in the brick chimney. The picket fence, trim and shutters went a rich cream to adhere to the house’s old charm.

Interior phase to come!

Piedmont: Deck

This deck, made of “Ipe” an Exotic hardwood,  is gorgeously colored and naturally needs no stain.  It was sealed with a translucent UV protective sealer to protect against weather and foot traffic. The deck once sealed turned a rich reddish-brown.  The color and intensity are complimentary to the copper downspouts and contrasting house colors.  The railings were prepared and finish painted to match the color and overall style of the trim. 

The coating used for the deck was Penofin Hardwood Sealer. 

The trim was BM Latex Moore-Glo.

Berkeley Garage Renovation

This is a great example of how simplicity can create openness. 

The client was looking to transform this space, bringing in a small amount of color from the lush landscape creating a serene and fluid feeling.  Contractors were hired to upgrade key elements such as radiant flooring, new vinyl windows and cross beams with custom lighting. 

The paint used was Benjamin Moore “Aura”.
