Hillsborough

This hillside residence was an aging 1960′s structure with antiquated kitchen, bathrooms, and floor plan. The homeowners’ desire was to completely raze the structure and create a new home that fulfilled their dreams and desires.

Going, Going, Gone

Basement Excavation

Once the existing structure had been completely razed and hauled off the site to recycling plants the basement excavation began. This basement required the excavation and removal of over 1500 cubic yards of earth.

Basement & Entry Framing

The Basement walls were ten inch thick concrete walls with 5/8″ double mat rebar. The floor structure consist of 14″ deep by 3 1/2″ wide engineered floor trusses all designed to carry the floor load without any post or walls to interrupt sight lines within the home theater, recreation room, and Wine Cellar which are contained with the Basement floor area. The entry porch was exposed finished framing (See page 1 photo) manufactured from clear grain Douglas fir lumber. The entry beam structure consisted of 6×10 and 6×8 structural members.
