Design-Build Remodel
This whole house remodel consisted of an extensive redesign, renovation, and structural upgrade of an existing 5,500 sf home which sits on a one acre lot with expansive views of the San Francisco Bay.

The goal for this remodel was to change the overall character of the space into a casually elegant and cohesive interior design. This was done with the use of consistently detailed custom cabinetry, architectural woodwork, and improved flow. A better relationship between interior and exterior rooms was also created to take advantage of the views and sunlight.

The ground floor renovations include relocating and creating a new main entry and complete remodeling of the kitchen area into a more intimate and useable space. The new kitchen includes a cherry island with granite counter, dining area with views, and a sitting area with bar and built-in buffet. Additional ground floor renovations include the remodel of all bathrooms, guest bedroom, family room, and office.

The 2nd floor renovations include reorganizing the master suite to incorporate a sitting area and adding windows. The master bathroom suite was redesigned to integrate dark wood floors, custom cabinets with marble counters, and new sinks, tubs, and toilets.

Additional renovations included adding walk-in closet to existing bedroom, redesigning one existing bathroom into one full bath and one ½ bath, and new architectural cabinetry, trim and finishes throughout.
In addition, extensive lighting, window shading, audio equipment, security and internet connections were coordinated and installed throughout the entire home. All electrical, hvac, and plumbing systems were upgraded to current codes utilizing highly energy efficient equipment including 27 solar panels.
