Originally the site had a single story 1950's bungalow which was incorporated in the design of the new house allowing the advantages of calling this house a "remodel". Even though there is not much of the original house in the new project, the rooms and part of the foundation were incorporated into the project allowing the Client to spend less on permitting fees and to save on some construction costs.
This 2,900 square foot house has grown over the years from a small 800 square foot bungalow into a 4 bedroom, 3 bath home with plenty of gathering spaces both indoors and outdoors.
The red stucco color pays tribute to the original redwood facade of the old bungalow, but also pays homage to a favorite French country home.
