Foundation to Finish, we've done it all...


23rd Street - Project 1

We raised this building 2 feet. Individual flats on floors 1 & 2 were combined, an in-law suite was added in the new lower level along with a 2 car garage.  See more...


23rd Street - Project 2

This was a down to studs renovation for a poorly executed 1960s remodel. The underlying hill was excavated and 2 car garage added. The 4th floor was added with solar on the roof. See more...


27th Street

We were asked to correct another contractor's disasterous remodel. Head to toe we reviewed this home and helped the owners fall in love with it all over again. See more...



Creativity with limited budgets - A large exterior central light well (6’x10’) on the main level was replaced by a kitchen island and three skylights. This created a more modern open floor plan and additional square footage for a master bathroom. The staircase between floors was relocated along with expanding into the lower level adding a bedroom, bathroom, family room and large deck off the back of the house. The house was expanded from two bedrooms/one bath to three bedrooms/ three bath, with a family room. See more...



Interior - This was a large scale project which included excavation and foundation work to expand into the garage level. The upper two stories were a down to studs remodel. All interior walls were removed including the replacement of floor joists between the upper floors (which was a bit tricky). A staircase was created between the garage level and first floor levels. The original staircase between the first and second floor was rebuilt in a new location. All windows were replaced and a large arched top window was added on the top floor.

Exterior - The entry staircase was redesigned and rebuilt. All exterior cladding was replaced which included shingle siding and all molding. See more...


Sanchez Street

This Victorian farmhouse's facade was covered in cement siding in the 1950s. All detail had been removed during the installation.
