Goings on at the Because We Cannery

Oakland Home Renovation, Part2

As this Oakland Hills home project moves swiftly forward, we have made great progress.All of the exterior walls are up and waterproofed, the new energy efficient windows installed, and the new roof complete.


The interior steel beams are in place in the ceiling, allowing this large open family room, dining room & kitchen to be one large grand open space. IMG_8165

The skylight with exposed timber framing will let beautiful natural light into the large open room. The light will trickle down the stairway that it spans above. Giving natural light to the open stairway and soon to be installed slide! (that will be exciting!) IMG_8167

The wall of large open windows give a striking view of the Oakland Hills and the Bay beyond. IMG_8170

The new downstairs room will be a casual den & play room for the kids. IMG_8172

And finally, the back yard terracing is coming along well with stairs and landings for fruit trees and garden space. IMG_8160
