Phase One of the Clover Drive remodel in the Rockridge neighborhood of Oakland included the kitchen, two full bathrooms, and a new front porch stoop. Phase two of the remodel will  take place in the Summer of 2012 and includes a 2nd story addition with a bathroom, bedroom and laundry room.

For phase one, the homeowners wanted to open up and expand their current kitchen size. A wide archway replaced a standard doorway into the dining room and the laundry room was eliminated, opening up the corner office area and bringing in more natural light into the kitchen. The clients preferred to maintain some of the original features of the home including the ironing board/cabinet feature which was relocated to a new wall. Also preserved were the original doors and crystal doorknobs into the kitchen and half bath.

Standout features of this remodel include a popped out bay window over the sink to increase light and space, an architectural soffit over the sink to hide upstairs plumbing, and a graceful archway into the dining area.

See the clover baths page for more information about the bathroom remodels.
