The kitchen features Southern Oregon grown Madrone wood countertops. The cabinets throughout the home were locally made by Moon Cabinetry and consist of reclaimed black walnut cubes from Northern California and wheatboard with non-toxic adhesives and binders.
The master suite was designed so that the bed could be placed against any of the 3 walls. The thoughtfully placed windows ensure ample natural light and plenty of privacy. The master bath doesn’t leave much to be desired with cork flooring, Paperstone countertop, dual sinks, large walk-in shower, soaking tub, Caroma Caravelle dual-flush toilet, radiant floor heat, and a heated towel rack.
