Dwell Home Venice: Part 11


Sebastian Mariscal designs a home in Venice, CA that brings the outside in. We track the project from start to finish with future resident Michael Sylvester. Part 11, November 2011: Framing Begins.

Now that the ground floor concrete slabs have cured, it is time to start framing the house.

The garage acts as a staging area as more lumber arrives.
The first batch of wood was delivered by Crenshaw Lumber and so now we are ready to start framing.
