Dream Home Successful Remodel Even with Coastal Commission Requirements

La Jolla / Whole Home


The homeowners needed a home suited to fit their growing family and active lifestyle. The home was cramped and outdated.


Originally constructed as a single story cottage 1 ½ blocks from the ocean, our clients were a young family with twin boys who envisioned a two-story villa on the lot, with a guest apartment above the existing detached garage. To accommodate the Coastal Commission, K-Co was required to leave 50% of the existing walls in place, making the design more of a challenge than simply starting over. We built the entire second floor and guest apartment just as they had visualized it.
