Seaside Remodel – Completed Winter 2018
The original cottage on Seaside Street on Santa Cruz’s Lower Westside was originally built in 1930 but underwent a series of remodels over the ensuing 85 years. In 2018, our clients decided to undertake a major overhaul in order to expand and beautify the home while maintaining their goal for an energy efficient and code compliant house. Although the bones of the house (mainly the foundation and some of the original framing) remained intact, the house was thoroughly modernized which included all new windows, doors, wood flooring, tile, kitchen (using recycled cabinetry), hydronic flooring, bathrooms, insulation and paint. Six months after we started gutting the house, a completely new structure emerged. The “Blue House” is a sight to behold.
