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:
*In the demo plan, the gray areas distinguish the walls that are to be demolished, and the walls that are to remain.
The first step was to get the old and unnecessary stuff outta there!
The construction crew literally just goes at it with hammers and electric saws. Its loud & dusty – but if you are having a bad day, it could be a great way to exhaust your frustrations!
We have some great plans for this fireplace….

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.
