This home was built back when Walnut Creek was just a collection of walnut groves. For this home remodeling project, the homeowners wanted to take this dated home and turn it into a spacious modern family space by extending the living room and converting the garage into a home office. From the outside, you'll see that we replaced the siding, roofing, and landscaping. We also added a large sliding windows in the living room.
The next picture shows the entrance from the backyard deck to the kitchen dining room. The large opening from the double doors make the transition from the home to the backyard feel super seamless. What you can't see in the pictures is the concrete gas fireplace built by the deck and roughly 400 sq ft home extension we built onto the house.
On the topic of extensions, the renovated garage you'll see in the pictures started off as a room with exposed framing and no insulation. We converted this garage space into a comfortable living space / functional home office. Garage to office conversions have been a popular option for most Bay Area homeowners these past few months!
Moving inside, we built the common area to be well lit by natural light. The materials used throughout the home stay consistent with the gentle pastels and natural colors. The natural stone in the kitchen does a wonderful job at adding some texture into the room.
The home also features a 6 range Thermador cooktop with a stainless steel overhead exhaust, a newly built beverage nook, and newly renovated home office. We repurposed the garage of this home into a modern office with lots of outlets and an upgraded electrical system to handle the load of all the new appliances and musical instruments.
Aside from the home renovation & remodeling services we offer at Home Quality Remodeling, we also build home offices & ADUs - also known as Granny units. Our general contractors are a versatile bunch!
