THE FAMILY ROOM: "I have seen many magnificent and precise homes that yet were cold. However, this home is different. IT has unique moments. It is immediately comfortable. The way the rooms communicate to one another is as good as I have ever seen." (Frank Macri, President Andrews/Birt Advertising * Newmedia Minneapolis/Denver). This Family Room is oriented toward 'Finger Rock' of the Catalina Mountains beyond. The design is bright and airy with the spaces of the Family Room, Kitchen, and Nook flowing together. Heavy chamfered doug-fir beams with beautiful corbels add character at the ceiling level. Plain slump block masonry is given life by the 'Adobe Mortar Wash' finish, as black hand made wrought-iron detaining at the mantle, bar/foot-rail, and kitchen fan hood, (not seen here) help tie the spaces together with a common material of unique application.
