Guest House remodeling, Palo Alto CA

Project by Francisco Luna posted 04-08-2008 06:13 PM 2986 views 0 times favorited 30 comments Add to Favorites Watch

Working as a Carpenter and Cabinet installer for a General Contractors firm in San Francisco, I rebuilded this small guest house for a client in Palo Alto, CA. It’s a 12’ x 16’ small building at the back of the house, was in very bad shape when we received the project; old redwood framing, redwood shingles at roof and siding and cracked foundations. The city codes allowed to rebuild the building without demolishig it, and preserving 50% of the original structure. A concrete subcontractor raised the entire structure and made a new concrete slab. The framing was retrofitted, and everything else was brand new. Small bathroom and kitchenette was installed as well.

-- "Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain." Salm 127:1

A nice guest house like that makes me think… If I build a guest house and no “main” house, do I still have to pay taxes ;)

Good use of space without looking cramped. Nice job.

Thanks all for the commments. Rat, I’d say a place like this is around thousand bucks, a few blocks from downtown Palo Alto.

Beautiful guest home remodeling structure you share with us that is very beautiful hut of the guest house. You must be professional and have great skills or remodeling of the landscaping design. That would take less space and make the place beautiful. My friend recommended this www.ukessayservicesreviews.com link and found very interesting and amazing landscaping ideas from professionals.
