Q:Why did you decide to improve your home? A: We bought our home because of the spacious lot and proximity to the people and places we like to be near. We can walk to the beach, into Encinitas, or to any of the schools our kids will attend. The house we bought needed a lot of love. We knew that right away. It was simple and ok to begin with, but we hooked up with Andrew very soon after moving in to envision what it could be. Our remodel was about improving the flow of our life and expanding the indoor/outdoor living space.
Q: What is your favorite part of your new space? A:My favorite part of the remodeled space has to be the master suite. The closet makes me so happy every time I walk in and the shower is divine. It's like being in a luxury spa hotel every day. I also really love the family living space. It feels like it's giving you a hug when you're in there with the fire going and the kids playing. It's just magic.
Q: How has this remodel affected your quality of life? A: The new house is like such a reflection of our style, our lives, and our priorities. It makes life easier and feel more connected and special. It's a whole new chapter for us.
Q: How do your friends and family react to your improved space? What was the most memorable reaction? A: Not just our family and friends....but everyone who passes this house falls in love. It's becoming an important symbol for our neighborhood and for sustainable, stylish living. Grocers, furniture salespeople, doctors, coworkers..... the list goes on. People love it! That said, I think the most memorable reaction was mine. After unpacking our kitchen for hours, I just broke down in tears. I'm so happy for my kids and my family to have this space. It was a big accomplishment made possible only through your vision and Joel's team. Incredible. I can't thank you all enough.
