One of my new projects for 2011 is a remodel of a 1970s style house in the Hollywood Hills. My client purchased the house because of the 180 degree views of the Hollywood Sign, Downtown Los Angeles and on a clear day you can see the ocean!!!
The house has a great floor plan; the whole back side of the house which is the view side and where the family room, kitchen, dining room, living room and master bedroom are located. My client hired me to remodel the whole house inside and out. We are breaking it up into three phases since they plan on living in the house while the work is being done. The first phase of the project will start on the view side of the house in the rooms I listed above. I included a floor plan so you can get a sense of the layout.
Included in the first phase will begin with replacing all the original exterior doors and windows with a product from Fleetwood located here in Southern California which is the top of the line for french doors and windows. I chose the dark bronze aluminum finish without the mullions so there is no obstruction from the view.
Since the house was built in 1975 there has been hardly any upgrades so we are going to replace all the existing flooring materials with reclaimed hardwood throughout (finish TBD). I am including some before pictures of the family room, living room and dining room to give you a sense of what the house looks like today. I am planning on taking my followers through the process phase by phase so stay tuned!!!
