Second Time Around

Berkeley, CA


This was a return project to expand the living space.

  • To do so, we built a new Entry, enclosed the porch and removed the wall between the old porch and the Living Room.
  • We added new cabinets at the Entry and Living Room, matching existing doors at the Dining Room cabinets.
  • The curved bench at the Entry follows the line of the old porch railing. Note the curved top of the wall enclosing the new Entry stairs.
  • We also enlarged and made structural upgrades to the Garage.
  • We had previously remodeled the Kitchen, Nook and Bathroom at the rear of the home.
