Foster City Affordable Eichler Remodel


Our clients who had prior remodeling experience knew they had only a limited budget but wanted a high-end look for their new house. Determined to hold themselves to their budget, they limited the scope of work and scratched the idea of a costly addition. Instead, we reconfigured the existing spaces and removed a bulky fireplace that isolated the kitchen. Affordable IKEA fixtures and cabinets were installed in the kitchen and both bathrooms and some of the original wall and ceiling materials were simply refinished. They worked closely with their full-service contractor but put in a lot of their own effort in ordering materials which helped minimize costs. In the end, they got a more livable and modern home for a reasonable cost.
