House underneath the House


From the Client

‘We are in love with the stunning renovation Jeremy completed for us! He took the time to understand our needs and expanded upon our vision to create a truly custom and quality built living space. Through the process Jeremy was professional, timely and straight forward. He was available onsite and offered several custom design elements as the project developed. Truly a gifted architect, designer, and builder.’ -J&H

What we did

The original ranch house was built into a hill that effectively separated the main floor from the lower backyard.  The goal was to incorporate the underutilized yard into a large entertaining space supported by a lower-level addition ready for fun.  When putting together the wish list for this project our clients talked about all the different leisure ideas they were imagining and the many ways they could access the outdoor space.  

Catered events using the pro-style kitchen and bar with pass through exterior counter; scotch and cigars in an outdoor room with fireplace; a covered outdoor grilling station; a great room where multiple games could be playing on different screens; a cozy spot for family movie night; hangout spaces for kids and adults alike, all with access to patio and pool.  The house is ready for a party; yet is very intimate when it’s family time.
