Private Residence V
remodel/addition


Los Altos Hills
CA
2006
Though it is set in the trees and was idyllically private, this home needed significant repairs, upgrades and updating. A thorough structural upgrade,, expansion of the living spaces and move of the garage, to allow for a master suite, were the most visible but not the only changes. Because of changes in planning and fire codes the roof needed to be lowered and significant amounts of paving removed as well as new retaining walls constructed to support parking and fire truck access.
