AIASF Home Tours Weekend
Yesterday's SF Chronicle included an article I wrote about the upcoming American Institute of Architects' Home Tours Weekend in San Francisco. The event is scheduled for September 12 and 13, and includes a dozen properties. I posted before about one of my favorites, and below is a photo of another home I really liked:
The Ames Cottage is located in a small alley in the Mission District. Decades ago, it was the Betty May School of Dance. Now, it's a 720-square-foot studio that is amazing in so many ways. The fireplace surround in the center was made with reclaimed ceiling joists and serves as a closet (accessed on the bedroom side). There's additional storage built into the wall between the bathroom and living/dining area. The best part may be the outdoor spaces: there's a rooftop deck and a small courtyard complete with a soaking tub.
P.S. You can see some exterior shots of the cottage on Flora Grubb's blog.
