Usable parts of the aging house were repurposed. Bricks from the chimney are now part of the patio in the front of the house. All of the posts and beams in the basement were re-milled and reinstalled as exposed posts and beams in the first floor and above the stairway to support the roof. The worn oak floors were milled down and re-used in the second-floor slopedceilings and as a decorative screen for the loft space. And all of the original fir studs and sheathing boards were milled down and reinstalled as wood mosaic accent walls. Even the linear light fixtures were designed by Ray Culi using existing wood from both the flooring and framing.
