Project: 24 Richie Drive, Pleasant Hill, CA

I got lucky and was able to purchase a house that was literally a 5-minute drive from my existing project – the one at 2221 Sherman. That made things considerably easier as I managed the two projects since there was about a 6-week overlap where I had crews working on both houses at the same time.  I bought this house from the Son of the owner as he was being moved into assisted living. The house itself had really good bones, but it was quite dated. As you can see from the pictures below we made a lot of changes including bringing the majority of the house down to the studs to reconfigure the layout. There was also an un-permitted addition to the house that we removed which you can see in the before pictures of the backyard. Probably the biggest transformation of the house was opening up the walls to create a large open-concept kitchen/dining/living room. We then created a master suite on the back-half of the house, complete with a 3-piece bathroom, separate bathroom door for the toilet , a huge walk-in closet and added some french doors so you could access the backyard directly from the master. Instead of breaking up the pictures between before and after, I’m going to lump them together by area of the house to give you a better idea of the transformation that happened.
