Concerned for his 127-year-old Victorian home in Oakland, Ravi came to New Avenue for help in preventing leaks and modifying the ground floor to include a garage, bedroom, bathroom, laundry, and common space.
He wanted the space to be a place that he could use or a place where a roommate could live.
A New Avenue partner architect designed the improvements to Ravi’s home and worked with the city for permitting. The design and planning costs for this project came to $7,203.00. You can see the design and planning budget below.
