Steal This Look: Mill Valley Sleep Quarters

Issue 23 · Remodelista Bedroom · June 2, 2008

HOME Magazine featured our Mill Valley house in its June issue; the master suite addition measures all of 350 square feet, including the bathroom. Somehow our architect, Jerome Buttrick, managed to shoehorn it all in. (See the entire suite of images at Point Click Home; photos by the delightful Bay Area–based David Duncan Livingston.) First up, we deconstruct the bedroom.
