Follow the process of a new home constructed in the style of the early 1900s architect brothers Greene & Greene. We will use many of the Greene brothers style elements to honor their vision.
Most Greene & Greene homes are found primarily in Pasadena and in a few other California towns such as Carmel, Ojai, and Berkeley.
So much of what is happening on the house now can only be appreciated by someone who builds homes. When these photos were taken, much of the work was structural. This blog is an archive for us and it will soon be beneficial to others who are interested specifically in the Greene and Greene style as we begin to delve into the finishes over the next year. (though already there are some posts on furniture and lighting etc.)
Our home is much smaller in scale than most of the homes built by Greene and Greene but it gives us a taste of how complicated their work must have been using simpler tools and having multiple projects in process simultaneously.
