The original 900 square foot house was abandoned and infested, and partially illegally constructed. The new design removed the illegal elements, built out the front of the house, and added an additional story. The contemporary interpretation of Spanish ranch house details, open plan, and vaulted ceilings create an inviting sense of place. The neighbors were appreciative and welcome to the new change of style to the neighborhood. Market pricing for a house of this size was $550,000. This house sold for $707,000.
