Mill Valley - complete remodel

This project was a complete whole house remodel where the client's main concerns were indoor air quality, energy efficiency and the use of sustainable and green materials. There were many opportunities on this project to upgrade wall systems and mechanical systems. We added 6 skylights, installed fiberglass windows and installed an HRV system to provide fresh, tempered air. The house was heated with a small, 17,000 btu stove and water was heated with a tankless heater. All permanent lighting is LED with the exception of sconces in the bathroom. The flooring is bamboo, the cabinets are zero formaldehyde and durable with a 25 year warranty. Appliances are all energy star and the countertop is Cambria quartz. Small can be beautiful as the square footage of this house is around 800.
