The Crystal Beach House was a challenging project. The kitchen was closed off from the living room. So we opened up the space by removing the wall between the two areas. However that wall was a load bearing. This required replacing the wall with a 21’ steel beam header with steel columns at either end. The result is a modern more usable living area. The rest of the room was updated with shiplap added to the main floor walls and stairway.
All bathrooms were updated with new tiled tub and shower enclosures. New flooring throughout.
In the back house we added another bedroom by reframing the wall areas. Also adding a bunk area. All new flooring and a refacing of the kitchen cabinets.
When first purchased the house sold in 2018 for $605,000. After our renovations the house is currently listed for $1.4 million. More than doubling the purchase price.
