Sunnyvale Eichler Renovation
This project was a complete interior remodel without addition of any new space. Major renovations and replacements include new electrical and roof, upgraded plumbing, and new windows and doors. One room was taken out to enlarge the master bathroom.
Besides the unique twin gables, not found on may Eichler homes, other upgrades include multi-sliding Fleetwood doors from the kitchen and living room to the exterior of the home. Radiant floor heat was added, the fireplace was wrapped in marble slabs, a curbless shower was installed, and new Westend cedar cladded garage doors were added.
This project was a Featured Project in Dwell, April 2020:
