Nancy B. Hartley, a professional artist, and client of Gayler Design Build needed to set up a functional art studio in her home separate from the garage. Initially, she considered a detached accessory dwelling unit (ADU) or a separate art studio in her backyard. However, the setback regulations in San Ramon for detached units restricted her from building what she wanted and where she wanted. A better alternative was a room addition—building an attached studio to the side of her home, giving Nancy more flexibility and the creative oasis she needed.


Gayler Design Build began transforming Nancy’s home to include a spacious 327 square foot functional art studio. The home addition was designed with large windows, skylights and two exterior glass doors to let in plenty of natural light. The floor is finished in polished, smooth concrete with a beautiful eye-catching v-rustic cedar ceiling and ample wall space to hang her masterpieces.


“The new studio could not be more perfect for me. I am painting, in the studio, every day.”

-Nancy B. Hartley
