Private Residence House Progress

Our project for a private residence here in Vancouver is coming along.

The front of the house has been finished in stucco and composite panels. There will be a cedar screen in front of the Master Bedroom window that will be able to slip open for more daylight or be closed for more privacy. The Living room window will have a translucent film applied to its lower 4′ for visual privacy while still allowing in daylight.

Last Friday the staff of Proscenium did a scavenger hunt out in New Westminster. We learnt about some New West history and architecture, then had a fabulous time at Steele & Oak where we drank excellent beer, ate some delicious BBQ and enjoyed the sunny weather.
