Named "Greenehaven" by it's owners this tract home has recieved the full treatment.
The following photographs show the level of detail that this owner / architect wished to achieve.
It is my hope that this will serve as inspiration to you.

The Greenehaven project is a collaborative effort between Homeowner / Architect
Dave Sheegog and Jeff Balazs of Heart of Oak Workshop.
I truly believe that the concept for this project began several years ago when Dave was an architectural student at UC Berkeley. Dave was fortunate enough to
spend a year living in the historic and magnificent Thorsen House. Surely that life experiance and the daily exposure to the beauty and serenity that living in a
real masterpiece is something we can all appreciate.

I am certain that this exposure lead to Dave's desire to treat his wonderful family to this Greene & Greene inspired home makeover. Through careful planning
and a great deal of creative thinking we were able to achieve these results in a existing tract home here in Southern California.
It should be noted that exterior of the home was not modified other than door and window replacements and the addition of a few skylites. Given these constraints and the fact that the family remained in the home during entire effort the transformation of this home is truly spectacular.

All of the woodwork, furnishings (except the dining table and a few other pieces) and all of the leaded art glasswork you see in these photos were created by
Heart of Oak Workshop
. The wood used is African mahogany with Wenge accents. The stain and finish was developed by Dave and myself to achieve a reasonable Greene & Greene look while utilizing the best protective finish that modern chemistry has to offer. All the finish used is water based low VOC material out of respect for another "Green" movement.
