Santa Monica Gut Remodel - framing

A “Gut” remodel/restoration of a turn of the Century Spanish revival home located in Santa Monica.
The house was completely stripped to the “good” studs and rebuilt from the inside out.  As is the case in Los Angeles,
rebuilding a home and bringing it up to current building code standard, requires building from the inside out.  New foundations,
framing and mechanical systems create a new home.

  • Remodel/restoration of Spanish revival home

  • New pool house and custom pool with fountain

  • Complete “Chef’s style” kitchen

  • Unique open beamed ceiling

  • Moroccan tile

  • Plaster ceiling molding

The Ojai Skinny House

The Ojai Skinny House is a design based on the popular idea of modular housing.  Each time I have tried to do a house using modular technology, it hasn’t worked !  Here are some of the reasons:

  • Final cost was more expensive than building on site
  • Design couldn’t be changed to take advantage of the views
  • Too expensive/difficult to deliver to the site
