Named for its original date of construction, the remodel of this San Diego Craftsman preserves the essence of the original structure, yet increases functionality and enjoyment of the house. A modest expansion was added at the kitchen along with a new back porch. The interior was selectively gutted – converting individual rooms to an open plan that flows from one space to the next. Original wood floors and coffered ceilings were maintained and restored. New materials include a troweled concrete floor finish, custom milled soapstone countertop with integral sinks, exposed wood and custom casework. New windows and doors were designed to complement the originals. The front porch was overhauled as well: a poorly executed trellis cover was removed and a new concrete slab addressed waterproofing failures at the deck surface. Original hardware, interior doors and other small pieces of the original house were restored, reused and repurposed throughout.
