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

Lime Wash for the Ultimate French Look – Ojai New Home Construction

by Otis Bradley

Project: Ojai, California New Custom Home

Architecture: Pat Nolan, Rhett Judice
Builder: Otis Bradley Company, Inc.

Limewash is a centuries old technique used to enhance and protect stucco.  The beautiful patina and color adds a unique aged look to new stucco.  Our specialist, a real French man, will add three coats to create the effect.   Limewash, slaked lime, pigment and water, creates a chemical reaction with the stucco, not just a covering coat.

See the interesting article below for more information on Limewash.

 

Below you can see the base color of the stucco – on right side of the building – and the first coat of lime on the lefts

 

All the concrete seen here is the pool and spa.
