11th Hour Mission Heights

11th Hour Mission Heights

Trying to bring this house to the finish line. It has been a very smooth project. We ran 12 of the best sub-contractors in town through this house, each specializing in their respective trades. The tile jobs are coming out great, we stayed with the blue/grey theme but were careful not to overplay it. The kitchen cabinet color is incredible and looks fantastic next to the pure white quartz counter tops. I love the contrast we got from the Matte Black cabinet hardware too. Floors look great a little darker than I usually go. 

Landscaping, tile jobs, exterior paint and all sorts of small details are coming together. I decided on low maintenance out front but gave the new homeowner a big area of sod on irrigation out back for kids to play.

We got a great start on the project, the new driveway and retaining wall are done, brand new 30- year roof in the color Estate Grey and we redid the board and batten siding so it will look sharp when we paint the exterior.

It was really tough picking the exterior colors this time. I have been wanting to do a Navy Blue or Blue/Grey exterior since its popular now. Blue/Grey is the trend color for 2020. There was a house 1 block over that another investor painted blue, he really missed the mark and we even had neighbors telling us how much they hated it. I ended up putting 10 samples up and finally decided on a James Hardie Siding color called Evening Blue JH70-30. We got it in Behr at Home Depot, its in their computer.

The Navy Blue and Blue/Grey home design trend is really hot this year. We changed cabinet vendors to a custom supplier and they are actually made right here in San Diego and not China! I love spending money locally given the chance, additionally we got to pick the cabinet colors. I went with Benjamin Moore’s Mozart Blue BM 1665 for the lower cabinets in this kitchen to continue with the blue/grey theme.

We purchased this house right in the peak of the COVID-19 scare. The seller was moving out of town and the house needed extensive repairs. We are doing everything new top to bottom including a new driveway so it will come out incredible. There was a bad retaining wall that had a 30,000 estimate to repair as well. The homeowner decided to sell as-is instead of making all these repairs.

This property is in Mission Heights, the neighborhood right up on the hill above Fashion Valley Mall.

 

 

The first thing we did was demo the whole house and remove the bad roof, driveway, and retaining wall. I always start with the roof and fixing all the damaged facia board. This is going to be a great house as soon as we clear the backyard and grade it flat.

We are going to do a very complete remodel on this fixer upper. There was a foundation repair about 20 years ago, I am not happy with the concrete floors so we will level them a little better as well. Stay tuned we have this scheduled for a 5 week complete transformation. 

Serra Mesa Remodel Done!

Serra Mesa Remodel Done!

Just wrapped up this big Serra Mesa project to finish out the year. Couldn’t really be worse timing to put a house on the market in December but with all the new jobs in University City from the new Amazon Tech Headquarters, all surrounding areas are selling.

The open concept with big island kitchen really makes the house. We did the quartz counter tops again with a waterfall on the island for a dramatic touch. Matte black hardware and plumbing trim throughout looks very sharp and gives a good contrast to the white cabinetry.

Believe it or not beige and neutral paint colors are coming back. Combined with Navy Blue accents this is the new trend for 2020 in home design. I got so sick of seeing grey walls, glad to change it up.

Getting started on a great house we just purchased in Serra Mesa, San Diego. It’s funny to say I am excited about this I know, the property has seen years of neglect and deferred maintenance but I have a vision and will enjoy creating this old rental house into a really nice home for a new family to enjoy for years to come!

We are throwing a complete remodel at this home. I bought it “as-is” directly from the out-of-state owner and helped him with relocating the long time tenants.

The first thing I did was remove all these nasty juniper trees so we can replace the entire roof with all new sheeting, rafter tails and facia. I take pride in doing things right.
