Hello World!

Hello World! Welcome to the "Pope Street Modern" blog. This will be a visual diary of the process of transforming our 1939 California cottage into a "Warm Modern" house.

Here is the model-building stage of the design process - circa May 2007. You'll notice that the front looks pretty similar to the final design (above), but the back of the house on the model still has the original cottage-style gable roof. That went away in the next iteration, along with our budget :-(

And here are some excerpts from the floorplan (click for larger, non-fuzzy versions):

The "orange" parts of the renderings will be stained Cedar siding. Here is a good idea what that will look like - from another of Ana's houses located nearby in Los Altos, CA.
