Cost of a remodel and restoration of a 100+ year old historic home outside of San Francisco in Alameda

Our clients and their twin boys had outgrown their condo in San Francisco and need space and a lawn to play.

So they did what many young couples do…. they bought a fixer and spent two years remodeling it.  And the results are amazing!

In this story, our clients bought a 4,800 square foot 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom home that is 110 years old. The home needed extensive work as it had been 50+ years since it was last remodeled. They focused on sustainable products and maintaining original details such as the redwood found throughout the home while completely modernizing all the systems such as seismic, electrical, and plumbing.

They made a massive increase in the usable space in the home by converting the 4th floor attic to an 800 square foot office.

The project started in March of 2015 and finished spring of 2017.  The design, permitting and remodel was an even two years. Half of the time went to permitting.

The work was intense. A steel frame was inserted from the basement to the top of the roof and everything in between was dismantled and restored and replaced, or built new.

You can review the actual construction budget for the restoration in the link below.
