When my clients first purchased this house, it exuded charm on the outside, and was... hmmm, how to put this?... a little artistic for them on the inside. The kitchen was minuscule (and, I put my foot through its floor when I was inspecting it with them). While in escrow, I asked Lorin Hill (amazing architect) to walk through it with them and talk about possibilities. By the time escrow closed, initial plans were in place for a small addition and a large restructure and renovation, keeping the original charm intact. Kudos to you, Lorin, and to my wonderful clients, who oversaw house details that blossomed into this gorgeous home. What a joy!
