Central Avenue - Alameda Victorian

Alameda VictorianWe completed restoring this gorgeous “Old Lady” to her former glory and added a stylish modern apartment in the basement.

This is a beautiful three story Victorian in the city of Alameda.  We took over this very complex project where recently a remodel had been started, but had been left in its rough stage. The family has owned this building since the 1940's.

From the beginning it was clear that the existing plans and permits were not suited for the outcome desired by the owners.  We had our friend the architect draw up new plans in CAD format.  These went through the city planning and building departments.The planning department approved to convert this property into a legal duplex.

We completed the framing, rough electrical, rough plumbing and heating, which in this case is of the hydronic type: Plastic pipes in the floors circulate hot water to do the heating.

We went through all the stages from drywall to cabinetry, tilework and painting to final inspection.

The exterior painting was done complete with multi color scheme and gold leaf accents. 

The interior was renovated to the owners specifications and to their contentment.


We are very proud of the fact that we were able to turn this project around and achieve an absolutely positive result. The owners are very happy to have their family home back.
