Restoration or Remodel

Restorations and Remodels

Restorations and remodels are significant projects that upgrade or reinvent an entire home. At New Avenue, we have completed all types of remodels. Here are a few common types “Gut jobs” that remove almost everything but the exterior walls. The project shown below included 7+ dumpster loads of plumbing, plaster, floors, electrical, heating, kitchen cabinets, complete bathroom. If you can see it inside a home, we removed it. Much of what goes away is asbestos and lead too. By the end of the project, you have an entirely new inside while the exterior hasn’t changed a bit. In this picture, you can see a few bits of old roof that were saved while new roof rafters, a steel frame, new plywood floors were added. 90% of this home was brand new after this extensive remodel.

Historic Restorations

The beautiful victorian below was converted to a two-story rental property, and while maintained to be structurally sound it was abused with decades of dirt and grime and wear and tear on everything that you see. We added new kitchens, baths, windows, insulation and then finishes such as floors, tile, doors, wood trim, faucets, and fixtures.

New Avenue makes it easier for the client, architect and contractor to work together. Creating a platform for trust between all parties improves decision time, reduces mistakes and eliminates countless headaches and the costs that go up with them.

A home should be an endless source of fun, security, energy, income and more. We do custom residential design/build projects of all sizes. Projects include additions, remodels, accessory dwellings and custom homes.

Remodeling is commonly viewed as a nightmare

Cost over-runs, poor communication and the anxiety that a project will “take twice as long and cost twice as much” all cause projects to go sideways. These nightmares cause hardship for clients while jeopardizing the reputations and careers of the architects and contractors involved. We put an end to this.

We deliver a fair and neutral process

Our system seamlessly integrates the design/build experience in a way that no one else can.

We are about people

  • As a client, we focus on you and how your home can be adapted to best serve who you are, your family’s needs, your hobbies and your career plans.

Nick & Laine's Historic Restoration

Nick, Laine and their twin boys had outgrown their condo in San Francisco and needed space to eat, work and play. They bought a 4,800 square foot 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom home that is 110 years old. The home needed extensive work as it had been decades since it was last remodeled. They focused on sustainable products and maintaining original details such as the redwood found throughout the home while completely modernizing all the systems such as seismic, electrical, and plumbing. They made a massive increase in the usable space in the home by converting the attic to over 800 square feet of office space with a side for Nick and a side for Laine and an amazing roof window. The project started in March of 2015 and finished spring of 2017. The design, permitting and remodel was an even two years. Half of the time was invested in permitting.
