    A little OT for this thread but we stayed in this house for the long weekend and loved its taste and simplicity. The use of the space and volumes was just right. The owners did a wonderful job remodeling and expanding a late 1960's house.

    Interesting Greg; thanks for the pics. What impresses me most though, is you know Jack! (in the Box).

    ^^Love that house. The color of the weathered cedar is similar to the cladding on my place.

    This is great. I'll have to look into the designer's other pieces -- haven't heard of him before.
