The dining room was pinched and dark. Darker still was the cave-like living room beyond. All this would change.

With the generous new front porch, we opened the Dining Room with new French doors, updated lighting, and spacious openings to the Living Room beyond.

Removing the 1940’s vertical paneling and raising the ceiling to 10 feet, the Living Room is now bright, sophisticated, and welcoming. The clean, heightened walls allow the Owners to enjoy their art collection.

A dingy 3/4 bath gave way to light-filled stars to the new second floor, including niches for more of the Owners' art collection. A new bath now serves the revised first floor guest quarters.

Hillside properties have special requirements. The foundation was replaced to carry the new second floor load, and 24" diameter pilings were added to anchor the house into bedrock 8 - 16 feet below.
