Midway Cabin Remodel

April 24th, 2012

After the water disaster at my cabin I remodeled once again. You can see the before and after pictures of the first remodel here. This time around I designed things to be as maintenance free as possible. I de-cluttered so there were less areas for critters to get into. I opened up the ceiling space so things would feel more open. I of course kept the canoe that sits in the rafters above the great room!

Great Room

In the kitchen I added concrete counters for durability. To economize space the dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer all became drawers within the cabinetry. I have to tell my guest before they visit or they can’t find them!

Kitchen & Dining

Master Bedroom

I added closets in the bedrooms to stay more organized. I also updated the master and guest bedrooms with new beds and bedding!

Stairway to Loft

I had the opportunity to work on an office space for a good friend who opened a Hearing & Balance clinic in Bountiful. I consulted on paint colors, granite, laminate, fabric, and a few interior architectural details. It’s an interesting challenge to go into a space and work around existing elements. For this project the carpet had to stay as well as some of the lighting. Instead of ignoring the carpet I embraced it and selected granite with a purple fleck to relate to it!



These chairs are in the process of being recovered.

There was an existing built-in desk unit in Dr. Luekenga’s office. I left the center portion oak and updated the shelves and cabinets with new hardware and paint. I had a custom laminate desk made to relate to the built-in and fit the space.

Charitable Chair Event

April 17th, 2012

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to host Weber States Annual Charitable Chair event. WSU students brought to auction one-of-a-kind, new and historical chairs they had designed or refurbished. During the auction I interviewed each student. It gave them a chance to showcase their chair and hard work. Their quality of refinish and upholstery work was quite impressive. It was an exciting and successful night with nearly $10,000 raised!  Thank you to my friends who came to support!

Eco House – Update

April 11th, 2012

The excavation and beginning foundation for the Eco House in Springdale is coming to life! This home is at the mouth of Zions Canyon. The lot and its surroundings area are so beautiful! During excavation the crew had to be careful not to disturb the existing natural features. When I was designing the home I positioned it on the lot strategically as not to disturb large rocks, trees, and a natural wash.

You can see the renderings for this amazing home here.

I love to make a space feel as much like home as I can. I was adding some finishing touches to Bridgeport to give it more of a custom feel and thought I would share a bold DIY project. I had our painter paint a “rug” right onto the dining room floor.

It’s a daring move but as easy as measure, tape, paint!!

I am also having the ceiling wallpapered to add dimension to the space and personalize the home.

Lakeview Drive -Update

April 4th, 2012
The homes on Lakeview Drive are coming right along. Remember the shots from January when the foundation had just been poured. These homes are still up for sale! Contact Henry Walker Homes or my office with questions. You can also go here for a look at the floor plans.

The lots are so beautiful with the temple in the background!
