A local tech professional finds her quiet, residential cul-de-sac, the oasis that suits her perfectly.  However, the half-century old tract home needed some updating and expansion.  Reshaping the interior, directing views to the rear landscape, and adding to the living space was our goal.  With her love for fun-filled gatherings, we invested in a lively arrangement of home theater, game room, dining and kitchen, centered about a 3-sided gas fireplace.

The 828sf Addition to 1-story tract home, includes a game room, home theater projection system, viewing alcove, kitchen, dining room, master bathroom, and 260sf of covered porches. A major renovation of the kitchen & pantry is the center of attention. A variety of features have been added, such as vaulted ceilings, clerestory ventilating windows, skylights, whole house fan, ramp entry master shower, walk-in master closet, indirect ceiling lighting, 3-sided gas fireplace, greywater irrigation & more.

Green/sustainable features: existing site & structure; reuse existing slab & framing; fly ash concrete; engineered wood; recycled content insulation & gypsum board; tankless water heating; low-flow plumbing fixtures; energy efficient lighting fixtures & appliances; abundant natural lighting & whole house ventilation; concrete countertops; and programmable controls; and grey water plumbing to landscape irrigation.
