Restoring this 1956 mid-century modern home to its former glory included major repairs to the structural foundation, waterproofing, replacing the basement slab, and roofing. New cypress siding was milled to match the original wood species, width, and thickness. Vertical grain old-growth fir ceilings from the original structure were reclaimed, planed, and refinished. New fir was then custom milled to seamless match the original material where needed.
A custom epoxy blend was developed to match the period look of terrazzo, including the development of a technique to install epoxy flooring over wood framing. The entry door, an in-counter blender, decorative fluted glass panels, light fixtures, and other original items were reclaimed and reconditioned for reuse.
New flat-panel cabinetry was installed with handmade backsplash tiles from Portland, Oregon. The team installed a new concrete hearth and floating mantel, new electrical, HVAC, and plumbing, and new clad windows matching the original in size, functionality, and profile. Foot-wide oak flooring was milled to match and blend with the original bedroom hardwoods.
Every effort was made to blend all the comforts, features, and efficiencies of a modern home (Icynene insulation and tankless water heaters) with the mid-century modern beauty and style.
