  • The Vanderwoudes have been great clients over the years, and recently called us back to transform their fireplace and living room with a fresh design from renowned architect Dail Dixon. We demolished the existing fireplace and wall of stone and went back with non-combustible steel stud framing for the new wall. A new linear fireplace from Chimneys Plus was nestled inside a custom soapstone surround from Custom Stone & Marble and custom cherry cabinetry from Aventine, installed with special floating clips giving the suspended appearance. New hardwoods were toothed-in to match existing by the Gerlings, and Jimi Scott from Colorcoat Studio worked his magic to match the existing Venetian plaster on our newly exposed wall. We also created new steps and railing from the kitchen/dining to living room, making the space feel more inviting and elegant. It’s been almost 5 years since Actual Size Builders built the dream deck with Ipé decking and cable rail system, but it looked too good not to share. It has weathered beautifully, and with a new standing-seam metal roof installed, this magnificent property will continue to turn heads for many years to come.
