A common theme of the remodel was the incorporation of salvaged material, both from the original house and outside sources. Collaborating with Peter Buley of Analog Modern, the original hemlock fir joists of the house were repurposed into the main entry door. Adjacent to the door is a bench made from a heart pine beam, sourced by Buley. The beam had been charred during a circa-1900 fire, and subsequently painted over during the last 100 years. The unique piece now finds its home in the entry foyer.

Carly and Brad rearranged the former entry closet area to form a small vestibule that would block the direct view to the kitchen upon arrival.

The locally-sourced Douglas fir windows and doors were provided by Lindal Cedar Homes.
A sectional designed by the residents joins a coffee table that Trey devised out of marble left over from a bathroom floor. The teak lounge chair by S.A. Andersen & Erik Andersen and Palle Pedersen for Horsnaes Møbler and the Jens Risom side table are both vintage. The painting is by Wesley Kimler.
