“It was dark, cramped and dripping with lavish décor,” says Joe. “But I could see the potential.”
Joe, a pilot who was less busy than usual as COVID-19 restrictions were in place, decided to take on the job himself with the help of his father-in-law, who was living with them at the time. Having never renovated a house before, the couple reached out to Raubyn Rothschild of Rothschild West Design + Planning for some guidance.
The three-level home needed some serious TLC and, except for the living room, was gutted to create a clean slate for their visions to come alive.
Rothschild called in the team at Flintstones Construction to help with some of the higher-ticket items — structural pieces like windows and doorways. Interior walls were removed and doorways were widened to create more openness, while windowsills were lowered to let in more natural light.
