A Historic Home in the San
Gabriel Foothills Restored.
The client wanted to remodel their . This early California board and batten home built in1936 and the former Sierra Madre Mayor H. Clay Beavis, had been badly remodeled over the years. There were two walls and a dark sleeping porch in between the new owners and amazing view. After removing the walls, vaulting the ceiling, and tearing down the walls to the sleeping porch to create an outdoor balcony, the view encompassing the Pacific Ocean, the San Jacinto Mountain range and the San Gabriel valley was opened up. The result was a beautiful, vaulted great room where lazy days cooking and hanging with friends was now possible. The new home embraced the California indoor-outdoor rustic lifestyle of the early 20th century while also updating the home with modern appliances, energy saving and green technologies.
