The WeeHouse Refinish Project
Here at Natürlich we were recently a part of an exciting project featured in the Press Democrat. They call it the WeeHouse Sonoma Mountain. It's a tiny house mountain retreat that has been described as a “celebration of the luxury of less.” View the article.
The ultra-minimalist home was designed by Alchemy Architects in Minnesota, built in an Oregon factory, and trucked to Sonoma Mountain. It has been seen in Dwell Magazine and other publications. It even received a Small Project Award from the American Institute of Architects. Not only is it a wonderful design, it's built to stand up to the threat of wild-fires that are have become the new normal here in Sonoma County.
The IPE (a Brazilian hardwood, pronounced E-pay) wood floors are continuous from the exterior deck right into the interior living space. However because the interior wood had not been kiln-dried, it began to have some problems. That's where our Natürlich refinishing team stepped in... we sanded the interior wood and then applied a new oil finish with our favorite Osmo product. The result was a huge improvement! The beauty of the IPE was restored.
We love being a part of sustainable housing projects that integrate so well with the beauty of our landscape here in Sonoma County!
