Seeing the seven sweet homes on the historical society home tour

Vicki KahnOut andamp; About

All of us need a little inspiration now and again. Those that toured seven outstanding North Lake Tahoe homes last weekend as part of the North Lake Tahoe Historical Societys annual home tour got their creative juices flowing in their minds just as the water was flowing in Jim and Renate Moores lovely manmade natural rock stream at their European-inspired Tahoe Vista home. At Pam and Dale Chamblins nearby home, guests viewed the artistically placed tree inside the home that is actually a load-bearing support. At Laurie and Steve Gregorys delightful Scandinavian and Swiss Tyrolean-style lakefront home, an abundance of hand-painted dcor was seen through out. At Bebe and BJ Cassins Flick Point lakefront home the original old Tahoe feeling was charmingly preserved after four remodels. Architect Sherry Guzzi and contractor Ted Guzzis home showcased special construction features including hand-crafted full log walls made from standing, dead, lodge pole pine that was peeled and notched by hand in Montana. A totem pole from Montana in the front yard and a Koi pond were just a couple of the unique features of Ken and Bonnie Fosters architecturally designed home.Ron and Jane Jenny redesigned and reconstructed their Carnelian Bay lakefront in two phases. Special construction features included reclaimed wood flooring from an 1800s Sierraville farmhouse and a stream under the entryway garden bridge.Seen touring the North Shore homes were Patsy Sevison, Brenda Bresnahan, Joanne Hurst, Cherrie Leininger, Andrea Carabetta, Patti and Gary Boxeth, Sherie and Bruce Pohle, Gracie and Don Sarmento, Ann Penniman, home tour chair Nileta andamp; Dick Morton (Dick is president of the historical society), Mary Mills, Dave and Susan Elliott, Fritzi Briner, Carole Eichhorn, Jim and Nancy Cline, Linda Schwoob, Carolyn Trimble, Art and Karen Mennick, Jerry and Bertica Pearlman, MaryEllen Vogt, Pat Castellucci, Joan O’Lear, Karen and Warren Wagner, Roger Ramseier and Donna Benner, Ginny Topol, Judy Friedman, Liz and Paul Nyberg, Kathy and Steve Swigard, Ellen Magnani, Judy Thompson and Sharon Filardo.
