Sonoma County Home - Fire Rebuild: Kenwood California

NEW COUNTRY HOME  Kenwood, California

We were asked to design a new modern house in Kenwood after our client's second home burned in the recent Sonoma County fires.  The new home will be rebuilt on the 2.6 acre site.  Initially, the 2,000 square foot house will be a weekend retreat but may eventually become their full-time residence.  

The new house is to be oriented to capture the best views of the lot.  The house design and orientation on the site also optimizes access to natural light throughout the house.

The lot is a very wooded area with moderate to steeply sloping land.  Luckily, many of the surrounding wooded areas are unaffected by the fires.

We are currently assisting the owner during their negotiations with the insurance company as well as helping the owner select a contractor for the project.  Other pre-design work includes helping with the regulatory hurdles for site clean up and project budgeting for construction.
