Before and After: Coastal Retreat
This client wanted a beloved family retreat in California restored so future generations could continue to enjoy making memories here.
Pre-Construction: We wanted to work with the original paint color, and ensured that new hardscapes should match the existing front walk and driveway area.
Pre-Construction The client wanted to preserve the two giant oak trees on the property. In some cases, the top six inches of cover were dug and removed by hand to protect their shallow root system.
Pre-Construction The family are bocce ball fans and wanted a court. We identified an ideal area shaded by the giant oaks and easily viewed from the outdoor living and dining area.
Pre-Construction The aging, original pavilion offered limited shelter and no outdoor cooking space. This limited its use for entertainment and recreation.
Pre-Construction The old retaining wall supporting the pavilion was failing, and took up too much square footage. Our goal was to replace it with one sleek stone wall that allowed for additional area for the entertainment space.
Pre-Construction The roof supports on the north deck took up valuable living space, and the bulky railing obstructed the views. We replaced them with decorative support columns and custom iron railings. The deck was switched to a complimentary composite decking material.
