This is our project out in the Sunset District. The house was in rough shape and needed some real love. The downstairs was an unfinished basement and will be converted into a master suite with an office. There will also be a laundry room and a mudroom upon entry. A one-car garage will remain. The upstairs will go through a minor transformation. The majority of the house was covered in the cork panels that you see on the right. The kitchen was closed off, the bathroom outdated and the bedroom closets were “unique.” We have stripped the floor back and will put in a gourmet kitchen. What was once a wall will now be a peninsula to open up the space between the kitchen and living room. The hallway wall was pulled back to open up the space more, but to retain privacy for the bath entry. This photo captures work at the middle of framing. As the job progresses we’ll check in from this same perspective to watch the change. Stay tuned.

Over the past few months we have been working on a commercial project South of Market in San Francisco. Large commercial jobs are always unique. Oftentimes, much of the energy is applied to issues peripheral to the work at hand. Dealing with the building or neighborhood, can often sidetrack a day. Sometimes the routine act of parking can seem like the better part of your day. Navigating all of these sidebars while keeping the job moving forward is the art of commercial work. Many tasks will impact the building as a whole, and therefore other tenants. This requires coordination during off hours to minimize impact on other tenants in a building. Like Adam is doing in the picture above, always push forward to the light at the end of the tunnel.
