Snohomish Arbor with Glass Flourish

They Got it Right…Snohomish, WA

Well integrated design, materials and craftsmanship make this remodel and addition to a 1910 home outstanding. In chatting with the owner he said that the home had been a rental when they purchased it three years ago and at that time it showed a  bit of deferred maintenance. He related that his wife would design any projects and he would make them happen. The results show that they make a powerful  team. Click on the thumbnail  photos for the full view.

Design Details…Clinker Brick

Clinker Brick

Clinker Brick

Clinker bricks are bricks that were fired in a very hot kiln when they were still a bit wet . The water and high heat causes them to have interesting earthy colors and more organic shapes. Until their use was popularized by the architecture firm of Charles and Henry Greene, they were often discarded. Now they are collectible. Note, the name “Clinker” comes from the distinctive bright “clink” sound they make if struck against something. Snohomish, WA, USA
