Project Spotlight

Project Remodel | Hillside in Paradise Valley


Client Objective

Our clients considered moving from their long time family home, but after a extensive home search, they decided to keep their home and remodeling it. Their main focus was to transform the family room and entryway to be a more warm and inviting space. Holly from Est Est helped our client with the design and finishes.


The existing walls in the family room and entryway had an unusual wall covering of straw, the project began with the walls being sanded and prepared for the new custom wall treatment of “Rammed Earth” plaster and faux paint. The existing ceiling consisted of white wood beams; we covered the wood with stained Knotty Alder box beams between tongue and groove ceiling planks, which provided warmth to the rooms. Another detail was modifying the fireplace from wood burning to gas, and installing complimentary Autumn Blend dry stack stone around the fireplace along with a flagstone hearth. Lastly we had custom aged blackened steel with rivets added to the fireplace mantel and steel straps with bolts to the beams.

Happy Clients

The entire project was very successful; the clients loved how the rooms were transformed. We finished the project on schedule so they could celebrate Christmas with their entire family.
