An "Unbuildable" Lot

With steep slopes and 40' to get to the front door, the engineering needed to stablize the hill included:

  1. A garage slab 24" thick with two mats of #8 bars, 6" OC
  2. Garage retaining walls that:
    1. Started as 36" thick for 48";
    2. Then 24"thick for the next 48";
    3. Then 18" thick for the next 48";
    4. Then finshed at 12" though grade.


67 Steps from Street to Front Door

The original design required 67 steps to the front door.
The Roof Ridge was 113' above the street...that is the equivalent of a 9-story building

Built as a spec home, when sold the original buyer had us add:

  1. The elevator shown on the right side. It went for the garage to the main deck.
  2. A full apartment over the garage.
  3. A fifth bedroom and bath o the entry door level behind the Great Room.

Classically Trained at the North Bennet Street School in Boston - Master Craftmen

Our personnel were all dedicated to the finest tradition of post & beam construction, fine wood working and classic painting & finishing techniques.
We touched every aspect of this home from drawings to foundation, framing, beam work, cabinets, building the windows and doors, as well as installing the shake shingle roof.
We even built some of the orginial furniture.


Originally Spanish-Monterey Style

Our experience with Historical Restorations and training at the North Bennet Street School in Boston MA allowed us build this Spanish Montery style home from the ground up blending modern tecnology with classic craftmanship and quality commitment

The style has changed slightly over the years. One of the long-time owners was from France. They maintained a home in France as well. They added many details that shifted the character to a more Moorish style.
