Le Roy Remodel

Berkeley, CA 
This handsome Berkeley brown shingle has great bones but was in need of updating. The homeowner is an incredible cook and  loves to entertain. A large open kitchen with lots of work surface, multiple ovens, and a restaurant grade cooktop was an absolute must. The kitchen island serves as a place to chop veggies, eat amazing baked goods and enjoy cocktails! 

To open up the kitchen, we removed a second unused stairway, took out walls, raised the height of the ceiling, and expanded the opening between the kitchen and dining room. Other improvements included adding two laundry rooms, new bathrooms, all new wiring and updated can and pendant lighting, new heating system and whole house fan, seismic upgrades, new seismic and foundation work, remodel an existing au pair unit in the basement, new energy efficient double pane windows throughout. New solar, new insulation, new code approved guard railing.
