Multiple Family Suites

The client wanted us to design a new custom house on a tight suburban site that would emulate the style of homes
found in their native Ireland. Although they were empty nesters, the home was designed with complete bedroom suites
for all of their children’s growing families to come for extended visits. The centerpiece of the home is an open gathering
space that links kitchen, family room, breakfast room, and sunroom. The lower level of the home boasts 10’ ceilings for
the authentic Irish bar, gaming areas, a home theater, exercise room, a wine cellar, and a large train room to showcase an
extensive train set and collection of model trains.

Do you know of anyone in Oceanside California or San Diego California. Everyone I have spoken to told me that sand blasting was the only was to remove the paint and it would be fine even though I read otherwise. I choose to do it reluctantly and yes now my house has been compromised. Contractors out here deal with stucco they don't know much about brick ... at least I have not found the needle in the haystack. So, if you have any suggestions I would happily welcome them. Thank you for your reply
