Clipper Street Remodel and Addition – San Francisco Project Completed: 2001 Year Originally Built: Pre-1900 Sq. Feet of Building: 2,371sf Contractor: ALCO Const. Co. The remodel and addition to this three-bedroom single-family residence occurred in the rear of the house leaving the front facade unchanged. Upstairs, the rear portion of the existing first floor was rearranged so that the existing kitchen, which was divided into two small spaces, was reconfigured into a single room with an efficient work space layout. A rear wood deck was added off of the breakfast nook. Downstairs, a large new bedroom and bath have been added in the previously undeveloped basement. An internal stair with bookshelves along one side was added to connect the two floors. The roof at the stair was shaped to allow existing windows to remain for natural light at the dining room and kitchen. The work included a full seismic upgrade at the ground floor and a new foundation at more than half of the building.

See those windows down at the bottom of the house? That means, of course, that this home has a basement. Be aware of the fact that drafts coming through the basement are a major area of concern for people who have homes that lose heat in the winter. Put plastic shields around these windows during the winter or switch out the glass to a thick double-paned variety to prevent this type of heat loss.
