Back in late 2008, my roommate Allie's parents hired me on as the designer for the extensive remodel of their hillside property in Trabuco Canyon. After months and months of patiently awaiting the city's response to the changes, the plans were approved and demolition has finally begun. This picture may not look like much, but to me it means PROGRESS!
I've spent the last several weeks walking the house with the Hobbins and their contractors, deciding what would stay and what would go. On Thursday's walk through much of the new framing was up so Diane and I took measurements and then headed off to Long Beach for a day of designing! With most of the appliances and granite slabs decided on, we worked on the design of the kitchen cabinets, selected sinks, faucets, began the search for the perfect baseboard and crown moldings, and much more. If all goes according to plan, the Hobbins will have a gorgeous new home to show off for the holidays!
