A 1940s house with many stories to tell was transformed to reflect this couple’s Scandinavian roots.

Auburn Modern is the outcome of a major reconfiguration and complete refinishing of a 1940s home in the beautiful hills near downtown Auburn. The homeowners bravely purchased this dark outdated house with a dream in mind to retire in a fresh, daylit, contemporary and peaceful space. The interior living space was expanded and vaulted to create a bright and airy social space. The basement  staircase was moved from the kitchen to the hallway in order to facilitate a more cohesive living space. What was once the entire primary bathroom was turned into a wet room for shower and soaking tub. Warm wood and clean finishes complement the Scandinavian-inspired decor. A new full-length IPE deck connects rooms on the back of the house to the pool below and overlooks the beautiful hills surrounding the North Fork.
