HISTORIC EAST SIDE—Whole House Remodel—2004

WINNER, 2006 BEST HISTORIC RESTORATION AWARD, Santa Fe Home Builders Association.

Originally two units with different floor levels, this renovation included significant earth work to create a smooth floor transition while maintaining the roof levels in compliance with Santa Fe’s Historical Review Board.

Special touches were added inside and out, including a splendid new patio and garden area, state-of-the art appliances, and beautiful granite countertops.

HISTORIC EAST SIDE—Remodel and Addition—2002

This stunning remodeled adobe home on historic Canyon Road has special touches throughout.  The historic charm was refreshed with new vigas at the ceiling, white-oak-plank flooring, hand-carved alder doors and cabinets, stone countertops and top-quality appliances.  Coved ceilings, archways and hand-shaped room transitions show off the diamond-finish plaster.

CANYON ROAD—Remodel and Addition—2008

This elegant custom home includes all of the details that make Santa Fe style unique, including Saltillo tile floors, hand-troweled plaster, and carved wooden beams.  Three fireplaces grace the interior, with another fireplace and firepit outside on the brick patio.  Comfort, luxury and beauty made this the perfect Santa Fe getaway for the whole family.

 LA TIERRA NUEVA—New Residence—2003

 

Many luxurious touches were added, including hand-troweled diamond-finish plaster, ceramic tile countertops, new vigas and wood floors.  The final result was so charming and beautiful that the home sold just as it was nearing completion.

WINNER, 2005 EXCELLENCE in REMODELING AWARD, Santa Fe Home Builders Association and 2005 SuCasita Award, SuCasa Magazine  for the home best representing New Mexico’s unique tradition of home building.”

 

This project required transforming a historically important, aging residence into an extraordinary home exemplifying the special qualities of Santa Fe Style.  It was imperative to preserve the historic nature of the home, while enhancing its beauty and bringing it up to current code.

 

Although building was badly in need of renovation, it was paramount to preserve the home’s character.  The second story had previously been enclosed to make living space out of a former turkey coop, and the ceiling was only six feet high — too low to meet the current code.   However, Santa Fe’s Historical Review Board would not allow an increase in the overall height of the building.  We met this challenge by lowering the floor of the bottom level and the mid-floor by two feet—no easy task in a structure with no existing foundation!

HISTORIC EAST PLAZA —Whole House Remodel—2008

WINNER, 2008 BEST HISTORIC RESTORATION AWARD, Santa Fe Home Builders Association.

This charming early-1900’s adobe home had suffered decades of weathering that left the roof, floor, and interior walls unsound.  The homeowners decided to take advantage of the situation by transforming the casa into their dream vacation home.  After gutting the house and stabilizing it with a concrete bond beam and thickened slab, we added all new plumbing, electrical, stucco, and plaster. 

A new roof, insulation, and thermal windows provided energy efficiency and comfort.  Custom handmade alder-wood doors and cabinets graced the interior with warm, welcoming style.
