Oregon Street, BerkeleyModern , San Francisco
The owners of this one-time classic east bay property updated their home for the 21st century, but wished to pay homage to the retro style of the original architecture, fixtures and vintage elements. In addition to plumbing and electrical repairs required for current code compliance, the kitchen was rebuilt maintaining the warmth and charm of the original, and a modern half-bath was newly constructed. The kitchen remodel included a new countertop surface and shelves, cabinets, a new tile backsplash and painting of trim, doors and casework. New hardwood flooring was installed in the kitchen, existing floors and stairs refinished throughout the home, and carpentry work performed to repair doors, windows and walls as needed. The existing bathroom sink and tub were refinished to home-owner requirements.
