Builders Increase House Size by Building on Top and Underneath Exisiting Home

Triumph Construction, Inc of Santa Monica proves that you do not need an estate size lot to create a beautiful estate feeling of a home.

The California bungalow located on the bluffs of the Pacific Palisades sits on a regular sized area corner lot, says Bill Rosenberg of Triumph Construction, Inc. "The project goal was to create a good sized home to fit a large family and capturing the beautiful ocean views, while providing the owners ample space for fun, games and hobbies."

The original house had a nice layout that was used and incorporated into the overall design. Triumph Construction held up the original structure with steel girders while digging underneath the building to create a new first floor or basement level with an amazing wine cellar that features a brick vaulted ceiling, a recreation room, and a three car garage. A new great room with 20' high beamed ceilings and a stone fireplace was created on the main floor, which fits perfectly with the existing living room with stone fireplace and bar, new gym, office and guest bedroom. The Third floor was added with sprawling views of the ocean from all three bedrooms, decks and den. Wide planked, distressed cherry hardwood floors, wood wainscoting, wood walls, and crown moldings give the house a true warm beach feeling.

The new 6,600 square foot home feels even larger since off the new great room a wall of doors fully open to bring in the outside living area, creating a true indoor outdoor flow. "With the doors open, the scent of the salty air filters into the home, always reminding us we are at the beach," says the home owner. The exterior work completes the home with a wood trellis over the outdoor living area, a stone fountain, stone fireplace, stone BBQ, swimming pool, spa and outdoor shower.

Lifting the house and adding living space and a garage underneath was key to providing enough exterior space for the family to enjoy the new lushly landscaped gardens, exterior living area and pool.

Bill Rosenberg mentioned that the project architect, designer and owners were all a pleasure to work with, and together created a true team effort while building this wonderful new home.
