Bill Fry Construction - Wm. H. Fry Const. Co. This family enjoyed the comfort of their cottage, but they understood that they needed more space. “Our fidgets lived in one room, which was quite cramped,” says one of the owners. “We needed additional opportunities for children and guests.” The owners noticed a large garage full of various junk. “We wanted some freedom, as the house is small, and we have two growing kids,” says the owner. “We also dreamed of a bathroom closer to the swimming pool and a sheltered, comfortable backyard space, where you can take shelter from the weather and sit with snacks.” It needed a quiet place to spend free time together. ” As a result, architect Bill Fry, who was recommended by friends, was hired to implement the idea. Dear readers, we invite you today to get acquainted with a wonderful project in a whole block, including unique functional rooms. The hangar is elongated. It has enough space for a living room with a small bar and a bath. However, it took some unexpected hard work to make the structure endure new uses. The space of the building provides a place for a family where you can enjoy socializing, playing, reading, staying watching movies, storing snacks and taking a shower indoors or in the yard. Location: Los Gatos, California. Size: approximately 25 square meters. Year of construction: 2011.

Looking outside, you can see the bright and open space, as well as the partition-compartment in the bathroom. Shelves behind the sofa provide enough space.for board games, magazines, towels, DVDs and books. “Sometimes I'll read or watch movies here,” says the landlord. “My children also love to watch movies, read and play with their friends in this cozy corner.” The sloping ceiling crowns the area where the living room furniture is located, and offers the possibility of adding a skylight and a fan. Cleverly placed wall niches are used tostorage and demonstration of items. It is safe to stomp wet feet through this space - the floors are warm. They look like wood, and in fact are porcelain tiles. In the area of ​​washing and bar open shelves and racksleave things in sight and visually expand the surface. “If we make friends in good weather, then we try to serve meals in the yard, and inside our new room we organize a table, which is very convenient,” the landlord shares. There is never a mess here and it’sfirst of all thanks to the open shelves. “It's nice that this small block serves as a place of“ escape ”for all of us - we do not use it every day, like other areas of our main house, therefore there is no turmoil or confusion in it. Shelving has a smooth surface, easy to wipe. Therefore, it is always clean here, even when there is total chaos in the house! ” Another niche provides storage space for dishes. A background of mosaic tiles can be admired through glass shelves. An elegant quartz worktop was found on sale. Move to the bathroom. A clear glass shower cabin creates a feeling of openness, which visually makes the room bigger than it really is. The bathroom is equipped with a steam shower from ThermaSol. Top glass tilts to keep steam inside the cabin. The low partition provides additional privacy in the toilet area. Finishing the bathroom with a border of mosaic tiles adorns the entire perimeter. Properly placed niches provide towel storage. Tip: when using open shelving in the bathroom you really can’t go wrong when choosing white towels. Another niche in the shower room - for shampoo anddecorative seashells. Tip: when planning grooves, make sure they are tall enough to hold your favorite products. If you prefer to buy high bottles, design the size of the shelves according to their dimensions. Mosaic elements continue on the floor of the shower. Bench and ledge provide extra space for bath accessories and seating. When there is no time to take a steam procedure, an outdoor shower will provide a quick rinse. Homeowners have a little overzealous whenit came to laying the tiles inside, but the place for irrigation in the open air only benefited from this. “I fell in love with too many types of tiles, and the designer tried to create an ornament with everyone at the same time. It looked good on paper, but when the elements began to be laid, we realized that everything was very difficult and did not work at all, ”explains the owner. “After losing sleep because of this, I decided that we need to remove some of the already installed fragments and stop at a simpler picture. A blessing in disguise: the extra unused tile we installed in an open shower corner, which as a result turned out to be more elegant than originally planned. This is a great way to use the material. ” Finally, on the other side of the garage is equippeda large playing area in the form of a giant chessboard. “The idea of ​​chess space arose from the union of something similar, which I saw in a book on landscape design and in a prestigious shopping center,” says the owner. “My children just started to comprehend the intellectual game, and I thought it would be great to place these elements in the yard. I wanted to do it subtly, as a surprise, and our architects have done a great deal of successful work. ”
