This 80s Estate Home Was Completely Transformed Into A Modern, Organic Home For A Family Of Five

Ross Alan Reclaimed is an LA-based reclaimed lumber firm run by husband-and-wife group Ross and Georgie, and in case you learn this weblog, you’re probably already acquainted with this duo. Emily labored with them completely within the mountain home, the place she used their reclaimed wooden for all of the flooring, ceilings, kitchen cupboards, and that lovely eating desk. The work they do is beautiful–as evidenced by every room within the mountain home. It’s not typically we get to see the houses of the makers we work with and in the present day, we now have the pleasure of sharing Ross and Georgie’s newly renovated residence that’s heat, inviting, and naturally, clad with completely different variations of their beautiful reclaimed wooden. It’s a house tour that may have you ever appreciating, if not coveting, reclaimed wooden and all the heat and texture it will possibly convey to an area.

The house initially had good bones however lacked heat, and a few components may undoubtedly use a contemporary replace. However what was imagined to be a “easy” renovation, was far more than that as a result of unexpected points. I’m certain all of you renovators on the market can relate (and are maybe rolling your eyes at me referring to any renovation being ‘easy’ :)).

In keeping with Georgie, “There have been numerous issues out of code that we needed to exchange and make proper which value us much more cash than we deliberate. The staircase needed to be redone as a result of the unique had no stringers (framework that’s load-bearing) in them, all {the electrical} was previous and out of code, joists in ceilings needed to be redone to code as a result of there have been a number of lacking (which was very bizarre), and due to our pipes bursting within the loos, we needed to redo the entire plumbing and pipes in the home.” So to treatment all of those issues, the challenge was a full intestine renovation that spanned over 3 years. They ended up doing the renovation in three phases which is why it took so long as it did, however the result’s a stupendous, natural residence that’s as inviting because the individuals who stay there.

The after is sort of unrecognizable from the earlier than, which is a testomony to their type and experience. Instantly, you possibly can sense how the house feels extra open and vivid which is partly as a result of the entire giant home windows that permit in a lot lovely pure gentle. The opposite supply of heat comes from the entire wooden tones peppered all through the house. The flooring and ceiling are the obvious and show-stopping, however as we transfer via this residence tour you’ll discover that additionally they combine and match wooden tones via furnishings, decor, and built-in cabinets. These facets all work collectively to create a comfortable and lived-in really feel.

Aspect be aware: The eating desk is from their new made-to-order furnishings line, and options reclaimed barn wooden and brass desk legs. It’s SO good. I really like how they gave a farmhouse-style desk a contemporary aptitude with these superior wishbone-shaped desk legs.

On the other facet of the eating space, giant glass doorways usher in an abundance of pure gentle, creating an especially open and ethereal vibe. The house itself can also be very open with minimal furnishings, so the wooden floors actually stand out. Since reclaimed wooden is such a giant a part of their lives, I requested Georgie what sort of wooden they used for the flooring and why. She defined, “We selected to make use of the oak combination for the flooring due to its sturdiness and shelf life. Now we have three children, animals, and a giant household so our flooring get numerous heavy use. Oak is simply tremendous stable and has already stood the check of time in our home.” Not solely is it stable and sturdy, however it has a stupendous end that gives a quiet rustic vibe to the house.

Tile | Cabinets

Within the kitchen, the blue picket sample tile backsplash creates motion and a touch of Midcentury fashionable aptitude. When you bear in mind from the earlier than photographs above, the kitchen was very beige and bland, and this kitchen is clearly the other of that. The tile is daring and vivid and contrasts superbly with the wooden cupboards and cabinets. I additionally love that they went with a white countertop to match the white partitions and make the house really feel dynamic but pulled collectively. Additionally, how cute is the field on the highest shelf that has little succulents coming out?? ADORABLE.

Eating Desk | Black Eating Chairs

The eating nook, nestled between the tile wall and the yellow accent wall, is an ideal instance of blending wooden tones. The eating nook bench is made with Black Walnut wooden from a barn in Ohio, as are the kitchen cupboards. The way in which the cupboards circulate seamlessly into the bench creates a cohesive look and I really like how the motion of the grain brings in a lot texture. I imply, significantly, that grain is STUNNING. Then there may be the eating desk with a black end on prime and a pure wooden backside which creates a pleasant distinction that’s accentuated with extra black wooden eating chairs.

Couch | Espresso Desk | Rug

The lounge sits reverse of the eating space and is extraordinarily cozy because of the variation of colours and textures. A number of wooden tones, velvet cushions, natural shapes, and a tufted rug all work collectively to create a comfortable, lived-in really feel. The yellow couch is custom-made by Clad Residence and as you possibly can see it was made to slot in this house completely, creating its personal zone to separate the lounge from the eating space. In an open-concept ground plan like theirs, it’s so necessary to put out furnishings in a approach that distinguishes the completely different areas.

Armchairs | Aspect Desk

On the opposite facet of the lounge, the ceiling is clad with white oak and as you possibly can see it’s barely lighter than the flooring. This mixing of wooden tones was intentional to maintain the house from feeling too monochromatic however can also be a results of their model ethos: “We don’t wish to waste supplies” says Georgie, “and when ordering this batch of white oak from barn wooden, there may be numerous crimson oak that sneaks its approach in. You may’t at all times inform what species of wooden it’s from simply the surface of the board which in our case was about 20%. Additionally, we cherished the distinction that the crimson oak added to our flooring which actually gave us room to tie in all the opposite wooden tones to the challenge just like the walnut kitchen.” So with 80% White Oak and 20% Pink Oak, the flooring have a darker, richer tone that provides much more depth to their residence.

Couch | Espresso Desk | Aspect Desk | Arm Chair

Very like the downstairs front room, the household room is wealthy with texture. Using a lot texture permits the colour palette to stay easy, and even with a small quantity of shade the room nonetheless feels so dynamic. A method they achieved that is by portray the ceiling black, which is sudden however such a cool design selection. It highlights the opposite black accents within the room to create a cohesive, balanced look. And once more, completely different wooden tones are sprinkled all through so this room has no scarcity of pure, rustic heat.

Wall Cladding | Arm Chair | Espresso Desk | Aspect Desk

The unique major bed room had an choice for a vaulted ceiling which they found someday whereas up within the attic house, in order that they determined to blow out the ceiling to disclose the vaulted ceiling. It robotically opened up the room and created a extra grand really feel. As soon as they vaulted the ceiling, they cladded it with their Coyote wall cladding, which has a various combination of grey and brown tones. I really like how there may be a lot variation in shade and texture which brings an added layer of heat to the house.


I really like that they went with a lightweight wooden tone for the built-in lavatory self-importance so it actually pops towards the moody grey tile. Additionally, persevering with the ground tiles up the partitions is an thrilling selection that makes you’re feeling utterly enveloped by the colour. It creates a spa-like vibe that’s uber-relaxing and alluring.

Within the child’s lavatory, the tile sample is playful and fashionable and is balanced with the blue-stained self-importance. Seeing that the self-importance is clearly created from wooden, I requested Georgie if it was one other piece made by them with their reclaimed wooden. It after all is and exhibits simply how a lot vary reclaimed wooden has. “We had a lot enjoyable utilizing all of our wooden to create these standout items in our residence which are all distinctive in their very own approach,” says Georgie, “The self-importance in our child’s lavatory, in addition to the visitor lavatory, had been accomplished and stained utilizing Rubio. It was enjoyable to play with colours as an alternative of the pure tone of the wooden and the tip outcome simply gave it that additional ‘wow’ assertion.”

Large thanks to Ross and Georgie for sharing their pretty residence and design course of with us. Now I need to go away you however not with out sharing the outstanding earlier than and afters:
