– David Coulson Design Studio –

Constructed from Douglas fir beams made from trees selected off the Coulson property, this post and beam studio doesn’t fail to impress.  The 42″ overhangs carry run off from 900 square feet of sod roof, along recycled log boom chains, which trickle feed potted bamboo at the entrance.  A salvaged curving iron staircase provides a means of access to the green roof, as well as an organic touch to the building.   The high ceiling living room, with it’s Douglas fir beams and floor to ceiling windows, leaves you connected with nature and feeling warm and comfortable. With vertical grain bamboo cabinets, black granite countertops, terrazzo flooring tie the kitchen in to the West Coast Japanese feel of the studio.  Custom shoji screens were custom made by Gelinas Carr and lead into the cozy bedroom wing of the studio.  The Douglas fir beams are carried through here with wood flooring and American Clay walls.
