Pat McVay and his family are moving into a sweet farmhouse overlooking Posession Point. Pat, a long-time Island resident and nationally known wood carver has his put his talent into many of the details of this fun, light-filled home.
Hanging from each of the four gabled ends are four directional medallions that Pat carved for the house. A smiling sun greets the east, the moon looks to the north, a sapsucker and and hummingbird work a tree together facing the woods to the west and two orca whales invoke the water view to the south.
The home also includes the work of other Whidbey Island artists. There are custom cabinets, hand made tile, both blown and cut glass, stone and steel work. Pat’s wife Kate found many reclaimed materials for their home which include: lighting, doors, cabinets, and hardware. These pieces add to the farmhouse character and the fun. The exterior cedar trim was milled on site from trees the Pat and Kate had saved. Multiple skylights and windows welcome light into every corner of the house. A high-efficiency furnace, heat pump and wood burning stove will keep the family toasty. We are happy to have been involved in creating a very warm and inspired home.Pat McVay is an extremely talented artist. Please find out more about his work at : http://www.mcvaysculpture.com/
