Encino Home Renovation: Floor Plans

As we continue along in the renovation of this 1950’s ranch-style home in Encino, CA – we thought we’d post some floor plans to help you get a better understanding of the changes we are making (click each to enlarge).  Below are the existing, demo* and proposed floor plans in respective order:

Encino Home Renovation: Demolition Day

The first step was to get the old and unnecessary stuff outta there!

The demo process took about 2 weeks to complete.  The crew was careful with the things they broke down so that we could recycle as much as possible.  A lot of the wood was re-used for the framing on this house.

All of the doors and windows were taken to be re-used on projects in Mexico.
