Flip Flop House: Finishes Have Begun!

Well well well….we are back, and a lot has happened to the Flip Flop House since we have last reported on it.

The house is totally coming together, and we are nearing the finish line (no pun intended :) .   We have gotten to the “finishes” phase – which is oh so awesome, because it is looking less like a construction site, and more like a home!  It truly is looking fantastic – we couldn’t be happier.

There are several layers to a finished exterior stucco (check out our detailed stucco description on one of the Encino Renovation posts).  Here is the brown coat on the south side of the house:

And the white finish on the north side:

The lower portion of the staircase glass railing has been installed.  It is so great to see that is turned out perfectly because during the design process, we seriously had to channel our inner geometry-student:

Those little metal guys that hold the glass are called “stand-offs”.

We had them custom designed for this staircase by Accurate Manufactured Products Group – they are really beautiful and clean pieces:

We are loving the way the natural light from the skylight filters down through the stairwell!

Here is one of the bathrooms with Caesarstone around the tub:

The master bathroom:

Someone had to try out this beautiful tub, so Dan took his shoes off and hopped in.  He said it was “sooooooo comfortable!”

The office looks out onto an interior garden patio that is open to the sky above.  This room also receives a lot of beautiful natural light!

The interior recessed lights are trimless, and gorgeous!  They did an incredible job installing them!

And per usual, we end the post with our favorite spot in the house….the main skylight above the stairwell:

We are loving the way the light is laying on these pristine white walls!!
