Cleveland Park Whole Site Craftsman Renovation-- Whole House Remodel, Addition, and Pool

This project included a complete rebuild, addition, and exterior landscape re-design of a 1920s Cleveland Park Craftsman. The project involved digging out and extending the basement. The rear of the house was removed and re-built in a blended craftsman/modern style. 10 foot tall windows extend across the rear lower level, connecting the entertainment room with a modern terrace, pool, and fence. New windows and stucco modernized the facade. Craftsman elements were retained with an extension of the home's unique rafter tails. A gable dormer helps retain the proportionality and traditional angles of the home.
The interior of the home boasts 3" rift sawn oak with a waterborne matte finish. Traditional craftsman trim details were re-produced throughout the house, and door openings were heightened to enhance the open-ness of the house. A custom wood screen/planter box accents the front family room, and opens to the rear screen porch. The basement includes a climbing wall, home gym, sauna, and guest suite. High efficiency boiler heats the home's three floors, with heat and cooling retention assisted by open and closed-cell foam insulation throughout the home. A new rear driveway is wired for an electric charging station. The project involved roughly 5000 square feet of interior build, and 1/6th of an acre of site and pool build. Construction Duration-- 11 Months.
