14th Avenue Design Build

Whole Home Remodel | Inner Richmond | San Francisco

Project Scope

SF Design Build was hired to remodel this two bedroom home across from Golden Gate Park. The home owners wanted their new home to feel more spacious, with a layout better suited for a family. On the list of requirements was a kitchen “with space to dance around in”!

Walls were removed and opened to create a larger, more functional kitchen that flows into the dining and living area. We made sure to preserve the feel of the existing architecture by keeping headers and matching trim.

We also removed an existing closet and bathroom and used the space to fit in a larger and more functional full bathroom, plus powder room. Built-in cabinets were added to either side of the fireplace with open shelving above. We also added a laundry room off of the master bedroom and replaced all of the windows and doors with new custom Marvin windows to match the original. We matched the existing hardwood in the remodeled kitchen and refinished the floors throughout.

Client Testimonial

Jessica, Rudy and the rest of the SF Design Build team transformed our 1920s condo into a beautiful, open-space concept home that we relish each day. This was no easy project, involving the rearrangement of many walls, remodeling the whole kitchen, installing new windows, new lighting, new cabinets, adding a half bath, and creating an in-unit laundry room.

Jessica was incredible during the design phase — she listened to our desires/goals and guided us through a range of options to achieve them (many of which were creative solutions we never would have thought of and other designers we talked to never suggested). They helped pick our materials, handled all of the permits with the city for us, and helped us think through trade-offs and alternatives as needed. Jessica was extremely patient helping create multiple budgets, and explaining ways we could cut costs while still achieving our underlying vision.

Rudy and his construction team were easy to work with and they made the construction phase as smooth as possible with a strong attention to detail and great communication. Our neighbors got to know them, and they did a great job keeping positive relationships in the building. Changes were quickly implemented and roadblocks were well navigated. Rudy and Jessica work extremely well together and when we had a roadblock with our HOA they coordinated all the right people on a call to help explain and show how everything was to code and within our HOA guidelines. They are the team you want. We would work with SFDB again in heart beat!
