If we’re going to beat the housing crisis in California, we must do two things:
1) add new homes within our existing communities
2) restore old homes, giving them new life that will last for generations
Today we’re revisiting one of our favorite restoration projects, a whole-house remodel in Alameda, CA.
This was a major project from the start. Fortunately, the owners, Nick and Laine, saw incredible potential in their new-to-them home, and they weren’t afraid to get their hands dirty to breathe new life into this historic house.
New Avenue provided a design that included a new steel frame and rebuilt, restored, or replaced every part of the building. New Avenue’s designer paid special attention to sustainability and keeping the structure’s historic charm intact (which, of course, meant saving the redwood finishes found throughout the home.)
The key words for this project were sustainability, durability, comfort, and history. That’s why we love this remodel so much.
The result was a beautiful new home that suits the family’s lifestyle, pays homage to the area’s rich history, and will stand proud for generations to come.
