This fabulous Bay View Craftman House has great bones.
It was a purchase knowing they could not move in right away.
Those original bones had knob and tube wiring, galvanized plumbing, one bathroom and a 1965 kitchen.
We are currently rewiring, new copper, adding a gorgeous 1/2 bath on 1st floor, whole new amazing kitchen, new flow and with all new for the 2nd floor bath.
Saving the fab maple floors on 2nd floor was possible, new handscraped hardwood on 1st floor.
The bulkhead on the stairs was raised 18″.
There is nothing we can’t do.
It’s Craftsman love.
Out goes the 1965 kitchen
the 1965 kitchen
1965 reno cut through 4 floor joists holding up the 2nd floor bathroom. This is a super no-no. It is a miracle the toilet and tub were still on the 2nd floor.
Living Room/Dining Room lost the drop ceiling and new floors
Pre demo lv/dr paneling, drop ceilings and narrow doorways
….and we found a window in the dining room
love notes from the previous owners
…..and we found a door. Closed up as quickly as we found it.

We are about 2 weeks from finish.
I always gently remind the client, the finish takes three times as long as the beginning.
It is literally watching paint dry.
