Mixed Materials in the Northwest
Another killer piece of architecture from the great Northwest. A sweet mix of materials carried throughout the house from the concrete and stone to the metal and solid wood. My favorite element, the chimney chase. They took advantage of it and went out on a little limb changing the material and incorporating some board-formed concrete. Solid.
The view looking out kind of speaks for itself. This wouldn't suck late on a Friday afternoon.
I'm a 3rd generation home builder and remodeler in Birmingham, Michigan. I have a passion for the way things were back when we started Capaldi Building in 1945. Back when homes were literally built from scratch and guys ate homemade sandwiches out of tin lunch pails. The art and craft of building is something that inspires me every day. I hope that this blog inspires more people to take pride in the space they call home.
