This is a good example of restoring a classic old stone home to the look of its former glory days. This extensive addition and remodel project was for Dick Stewart in Carmel By The Sea, CA.
When we started the project the homes doors and windows were falling apart, the bright blue asphalt shingles on the roof leaked, and the original Carmel Stone exterior had been painted with many coats of peeling white paint.
The look of the exterior of the home was of prime importance. Carmel Stone is very soft. We carefully sand blasted a test section of the exterior stone work to remove the paint and determine we would be able to avoid damage to the stone or grout.
The new plan called for a new entry, master bath suite, and garage. A very talented mason that restores stone was able to match the existing stone and the white grout with the new stone in the addition areas. Once the new exterior walls were veneered in stone, we carefully sand blasted the entire building. In this way we were able to maintain consistency to the look of the old stone as well as the new stone.
The asphalt roofing was stripped off and a new cedar shingle roof was installed. The cedar shingles at the rolled areas of the eaves were steamed and bent to the needed radius and attached with copper nails.
Most of the interior was gutted and reframed to California seismic engineering standards. While we had the interior gutted, the entire house was rewired. The kitchen, bedrooms and existing bathrooms were completely updated. The existing leaded windows and doors were repaired and custom windows and doors were made to match for the new addition areas.
