THE STORY BEHIND THE PROJECT
The kitchen was done almost 20 years ago and the homeowner was one of my first clients. I was called back because of the common and unfortunate situation of the refrigerator water line leaking and no one discovering it until damage had already been done. After the remediation of the water damage was complete, we gave the kitchen a refreshing new paint job. We replaced some cabinets in the water damaged areas.
The yoga retreat was a bonus area. The client had already thought of doing this before we arrived and we simply helped her to complete it to meet all local codes and standards. The yoga shack is an open air structure similar to a covered patio. We took the roof and gave it a severe slant to give the appearance of a grand temple. The ceiling height was determined by the apparatus the client uses to hang from for stretching and exercise. It’s every girl’s dream to have a yoga shack. The ultimate Zen hideaway.
