We noted that Jerry Ditto, author of Eichler Homes, and our design advisor, described our project on his web site yesterday.
His description included the following:
“I’ll be providing more details during the coming months as the construction continues, but let me give you a quick summary preview now. This remodel will more than double the square footage of the home, and will retain the Eichler architectural idiom in both materials and style throughout. The atrium will remain, but it will also be open to the second level below! Yes, while the elevations are truly a classic Claude Oakland design – front, rear and side views – of a single story home, it will become an Eichler with a full basement, with bright space and new amenities that are seldom found in remodeled homes.”
