Contemporary Remake

San Luis Obispo, CA

This house started out as a rather outdated ranch house and ended as a piece of modern art. The extensive remodel was accomplished in three phases. During phase one, the owners actually moved out and allowed us to completely gut and remake the kitchen, dining room and laundry room. Colored and textured hard surfaces such as aluminum, glass, Corian and soapstone give the home a bright, contemporary look.

During phase two we remade the entry, living room and family room. The front wall became twenty feet of glass panels and doors. Douglas fir paneling and built-in benches were added to span the living room through the glass wall to the outside entry. The outside entry area was landscaped with large boulders and a stunning red concrete block wall, which with the addition of large sliding fiberglass panels, affords sunlight, space and privacy from the street.

The third phase remodeled bathrooms with glass tile, concrete countertops and contemporary lighting. Sun tubes were installed for daylighting. This house truly became a creative and unique work of art.
