A Former Factory Morphs Into a Badass Sonoma Home
Originally published on CaliforniaHomeDesign.com
When interior designer Ann Jones purchased a house just a few blocks off the Sonoma Plaza, she was buying potential. "It had been a wood planing mill at the turn of the last century, and then it was a furniture factory," she says. "Sometime in the 1950s, it had been turned into a duplex, and it was suffering from about 50 years of deferred maintenance." But Jones was attracted to the building's original brick porch, wide open spaces and large lot. Preserving the roof line, rafters and maple floor; she set out to change everything else. "When I bought it, it was kind of creepy," says Jones. "But when I was done with it, it was ethereal."
