This was a major remodel in the private enclave of Bayshores in Newport Beach, California. The project is a classic example of a remodel that required a certain amount of structure be left
standing to avoid full engagement with the Coastal Commission. I worked on this project while with Burger & Associates.
This is also a fine example of what can happen when a truly great General Contractor (Rick Barrett) is responsible for building a well-designed home. Note the photo below- the elements over the
doors at the first level and under the windows on the second level are clear-coated fixed cedar awnings that were designed to be held back from the face of the stone pillars by less than an inch.
After the home was completed I "tested' the contractor by measuring this offset and sure enough, 7/8" remained from the faces of each material.
