The following project in the Sacramento Metropolitan area was awarded contractor of the Year (CotY) from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (Nari) for residential projects over $250,000.
This home was built in 1946 and is located in South Land Park, California. The owner’s children have all grown up & left the nest. The client’s profession is management of a nationally acclaimed trade & vendor show. Therefore, energy efficient, low maintenance, unique & “green” friendly products were to be used throughout. Quality of life was a driving factor when creating this 1,113 square foot 2 story addition. Authenticity to the homes original design was paramount, while integrating new materials & technology.
The original exterior walls were constructed of concrete block & created many challenges during the course of construction. The architecture called for a 12/12 roof pitch (extremely steep) that allowed for ample interior space with intricate angles, while minimizing impact on the front elevation. The rear elevation boasts beautiful clad windows, four sets of French doors, synthetic deck with continuous step and a private 2nd story balcony with stain grade railing. The “reclaimed” wood flooring is absolutely gorgeous and leads to an interior staircase that would make any master craftsman swell with pride. Era specific subway tile wainscoting above a floor laid with real pennies make it easy to get distracted in the hall bath.
The master suite contains two walk-in closets, sitting area, balcony, gas fireplace, wall mounted flat screen, his/her reading sconces on each side of the bed and fabulous bath. This beautiful bathroom is complete with a large jetted tub overlooking the 2nd story view, his/her vanity, natural stone floor &c gorgeous open shower. To complete this remodel the clients also added two new high efficiency HVAC units, tank-less water heater and a whole hose fan to conserve energy while providing amazing comfort for their new luxury home.
