Cypress Avenue, San Bruno CA
Residence Addition and Alterations
Existing residence was approximately 60 years old when design began in 2001.
Lower level dining and kitchen areas were relocated and expanded into rear yard, and the existing second floor was enlarged to 800 square feet.
Second story now has a master bedroom suite, two smaller bedrooms, a bath, a deck and closets.
Existing unsafe internal stair was removed and rebuilt, and a new prefabricated, metal fireplace and chimney was added to the south living room wall.
Substantial foundation repair work was needed, and the house framing system was strengthened to meet projected seismic forces.
Completed in 2010
