Rebuild, Remodel and Repair Your Home

Remodeling and Rebuilding Projects present different challenges than building a custom home from scratch. The existing home has already been presented and approved by the various Community Development agencies. The improvements and changes that the client desires need to be presented properly to have the redesign approved without unnecessary expense.
From the small remodel project to a complete redesign or rebuild, you will see that working with our designers gives you the results you want for a very reasonable price.

Remodel on the Mesa in Santa Barbara_________________

The Owner of this home realized he had an excellent location on the crest of a hill on Santa Barbara's Mesa. The Ranch Style home had become dated. By adding an upstairs Master Retreat with a spacious Loft/Lounge that adjoined a second story deck, he could take advantage of the spectacular views of the Ocean and Channel Islands. Enlarging and updating the Kitchen and remodeling the Living Room/Dining Room brought the design into the 21st Century.

Santa Barbara Tea Fire Rebuild_______________________

This project was a reconstruction of a beautiful "Mid-Century Modern" home devastated by the 2008 Tea Fire. The 1954 home was one of many designed by Architect Frank Robinson in the Santa Barbara Riviera that were destroyed by the fire. Conceived as an artist's aerie, it perched on a steep hillside with fantastic views of the Santa Barbara harbor and Channel Islands. After the fire nothing remained but the concrete footings. The owner, John Pedersen, desired to maintain the original design if possible. Working from photos and old drawings, the Designer, William Fedderson and Engineer, Doug Finlay helped bring the 1954 home back into the 21st Century. See more information about this project in the Design, Presentation, Drawings & Permits section.

City of Fillmore Historic District Rebuild________________

This property is located in Fillmore's historic district. The condemned building sat vacant for years; a blight in an otherwise very pleasant neighborhood. The existing home had been built on a non-conforming narrow lot. The City Planners were very particular about what they would allow to be built. Strict Planning and Zoning Guidelines called for Craftsman Style or Pre-50s Farm House Style.
At the request of the owner the remodel was designed to preserve the foundation and several of the existing rooms. The new design followed the layout of the original, adding popular Craftsman Styling. Exploratory research revealed that the foundations and concrete slabs could not be saved. Also, part of the existing Living Room encroached into the minimum side yard setback. So the home was razed and after some re-design and engineering revisions a full rebuild was approved.
