Two-Story Craftsman Home in Santa Cruz, CA
This project involved a second story addition and craftsman style remodel to a home in Santa Cruz, CA. The remodel involved updating many outdated features of the home. The homeowners took this opportunity to integrate many green building ideas into their new home - from which, the project was given a Green Building Award from the city of Santa Cruz.
Review by the Homeowner:
We had the pleasure of working with Larry and Golden Vision Designs on our 2,300 sq. ft. addition. Larry was able to take a rough floor plan and turn it into something amazing. Using his computer he was able to provide virtual walk throughs that gave us a better understanding of the spaces and their utility. When it came to the outside design we provided him with pictures of a building we liked in Santa Monica. He was able to extract the design elements and apply them seamlessly to our house. His design far exceeded our expectations. To this day It’s hard to work in our front yard without getting compliments on how great the house looks. Larry was instrumental throughout the process. His understanding of the interworking of the City allowed us to painlessly navigate the permit process. His knowledge as a carpenter enabled him to review the Engineer’s work and suggest changes that reduced costs. During the construction he worked as our advocate with the general contractor. Working with Larry was one of the high points of our project. We would highly recommend Larry and Golden Vision Designs! - Fritz Ibsch
