2007 Best Whole House Remodel Under $200,000

This project was a "frame up" restoration of a small 1920 Craftsman cottage in a historic district north of downtown Los Angeles. The house was gutted to facilitate the addition of central heat & air conditioning, new electrical wiring and copper plumbing. The goal was to retain as much of the period detail as possible without being a slave to it. A vintage claw-foot tub was purchased from an architectural salvage shop. An old O'Keefe and Merritt stove was located in good condition on Craig's List, which only needed a good cleaning and tune-up. On the exterior, the front porch was extended to become a wrap-around porch, which makes this 840 square foot home feel much larger and expands living space.
