This bank owned property comprised of a large addition to an original turn of the century craftsman. This view is through the original gutted craftsman to the kitchen which began the addition.
While the original craftsman was effectively stripped to bare studs the upstairs was virtually unusable due to the low sloping roof.
The solution was to reverse the staircase and flair the roof out to make the upstairs more usable. The finished picture is of the master bedroom.
The kitchen addition was maintained after updating the appliances and increasing the opening to the dining room of the original craftsman.
After stripping the sheetrock and removing the cove ceiling we installed new oak floors. Notice the reversal of the staircase and removal of the original fireplace in the middle of the living room.
This was one of the upstairs kids bedrooms that was created by flaring out the roof while reversing the staircase.
While reversing the staircase we were required to seismically upgrade the original post and beam structure. The secondary result was a very usable basement.
