This project has moved indoors. We have completed the framing and are working on the rough mechanical installation. Insulation, drywall and cabinets are to come. This photo shows a rarely seen view of this second storey addition. On this vintage house there have been a number of technical issues to overcome, but all is looking great! We will post photos of lathing and some interior shots as we move on.

This San Luis Obispo remodel is coming up in the world, the ground is getting lower, and the roof is getting covered. Pretty soon we will be getting to the mechanical phase and into the interior. A kitchen remodel with the pantry, laundry room and dining room to follow.


At Semmes & Company, some percentage of our projects have always included remodeling.  But with our county’s housing stock aging, and people wanting to conserve the valuable resource that is their home, we are putting greater emphasis on the remodeling aspect of our business.
Kenny Northcote, our Estimator, is also our new Remodeling Project Manager for Semmes & Co.  He will oversee your remodeling project every step of the way, helping you through the design, costing, permitting, construction, and final details.  Kenny, with his experience in management, estimating, and custom home construction, will help your remodeling project be a painless and pleasant experience. See our Semmes & Co. Remodeling Services page for more information.

Go Chris!

Go Chris!

Semmes and Company is just getting started with this remodel and addition in San Luis Obispo. Demolition on the small site is a tricky matter; Chris gets in some tractor time before we start concrete. We will be recycling more than 80% of all the waste on this project.

Functional RoomThis Murphy bed covers the entire wall, making a small bedroom of this coastal home entirely functional. It has a center table that folds down, and pull out end tables that make it a utility space when it is not being used as a guest room.
