A small 1,100 s.f. adobe home in the Blenman Elm historic neighborhood was loved by its owner. To make ends meet, she desired to take in a renter, but the house was too small. Our solution was to build a 800 s.f. apartment on top of the existing house, without destroying its unique character. This was accomplished by using a steel frame platform that eliminated all load bearing requirements. Completed in 2006.
