This home was an un-individualized 1960's bi-level that had not been kept up or updated. There was no sense of entry, and the floorplan was cut up into small rooms and low ceilings.


The design objective was to get rid of the bi-level entry, convert the "public space" to an open concept floor plan, and add a kitchen/dining area, master suite, and 2-car garage.


Stylistically, the objective was to get rid of the "rustic" and 1960's style (characterized by red brick exterior, moss rock fireplace, wood-stained trim, wood paneling, clawfoot tub, purple bath fixtures, etc) and modernize the design, layout and finishes.


The project included the following elements:

  • In the front, added a flagstone foyer at the main level and adjusted the exterior grade to walk up to the front door.

  • Constructed a 2-story flagstone and horizontal clear-cedar addition in the front with 2-car garage below and master suite with vaulted ceiling above.

  • Removed remainder of red brick on exterior and finished with hard-coat charcoal gray stucco.

  • Designed and constructed new front walk and landscaping to accentuate and complement new entry

  • Designed and constructed a kitchen and dining addition to the rear of the living room. Used Sierra Pacific 10' x 8' bi-fold glass door opening to a large deck overlooking the yard.

  • Removed the roof over the existing living room and vaulted the new roof and ceiling.

  • Removed moss rock from fireplace and finished with Venetian plaster.

  • Designed and had craftsmen construct custom kitchen cabinetry and metal/polycarbonate stair rails to complement the new modern, open design.
