Adventus Group
Together with the young
owner-builder clients of this
home we decided that the best
solution for their program was
to leave the original older shell
intact, but demolish the entire
inside of the home, and build a
brand new home inside the
existing shell. The end result
was a much improved, and
open floor plan, and a large
outdoor living deck opening
onto the south facing garden.

Building a new house inside an old house
Mill Valley, California
Previously, the entire front elevation of the house was a blank wall. By adding the small covered porch, we created more curb appeal while being
respectful of the young owner's limited budget.
