Dream Home

Some of the region’s top designers, landscape architects and local artisans worked for over two months to transform a classic 1939 Turlock home into a showplace for public viewing. The show house, a benefit for the Carnegie Arts Center, ended in May, however area residents can still be inspired by the outdoor designs created by a few of the local artisans who made the event such a success.


Candace Gonsalves and Kim Jonson of the downtown Turlock shop Farm House designed the barbecue patio. They used a custom redwood dining table, hand made by local craftsman Mike Maul, and set it for an evening of fun. Hanging above is a repurposed vintage turkey feeder chandelier.

Matt Gonsalves of Rustic Metal Designs created a unique bar from steel and reclaimed wood lug box ends.
When the sun goes down, family and friends can make themselves comfortable on one of the benches made from repurposed tomato bins and cozy up to the fire pit made by Rustic Metal Designs.
