Elderwood Build, Forest Hill

Elderwood Build, Forest Hill

The modern design of Project Elderwood necessitated the removal of all load bearing walls and installation of flush steel beams to accommodate an open concept floor plan. The 4,200 square foot home was re-framed and insulated using high density spray foam complete with resilient channel and Roxul soundproofing. 

Custom rift cut white oak mill work and flooring, drywall reveals, flush inlay vents and natural stone  surfaces throughout lend to free flowing continuity.

This project included the new build of a 400 square foot addition that span the main and upper floors. All windows and doors were replaced with clear view natural Douglas Fir interiors and aluminum clad exteriors. In addition, two sets of 12 foot bi-fold doors open to ipe decks to both rear and side yards. Finishes and features include wide planked European select white oak engineered hardwood, heated floors in all bathrooms and entrance-ways, custom mill work, 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, theatre room, 2 fireplaces, surround sound, central vac, custom fabricated curved glass guards on the rounded staircase and a  chef’s kitchen in the basement.

Last but definitely not least, the kitchen is simply stunning. Its central attraction is a 10+ foot island and waterfall that comfortably seats 7, made of a single slab of natural dolomite marble.

The white oak mill work throughout provides plenty of additional bench seating, storage, charging station and homework desk along with beautifully integrated appliances. Other finishes include: motion activated Brizo polished nickel knurled hardware, custom fabricated pendant lighting and central vac pans with toe kicks.
