Our Principal Architect and Founder, Ethan Andersen, was hired by HGTV to work closely with TV personality John Gidding on designs for the show Curb Appeal. This home was selected in Oakland’s Dimond District for a $20,000 facelift. Taking a cue from the subtle structure of the existing red-bud tree in the front yard, Ethan chose to add tudor-style half-timbering and a rustic patio cover. The wood framing of the patio cover was treated with a baking soda solution to accelerate the aging process. Artisan leaded glass panels were added on either side of a new front door.
