Custom Remodel Belmont Heights

Belmont Heights

Invited to look at a homeowner’s kitchen, it was evident that any resources spent on remodeling the kitchen would be wasteful. The entire house required attention. An open floor plan with building code updates, 200 amp electrical service, beefed-up insulation, plumbing, heating and air-conditioning, smooth drywall, wide-plank French Oak flooring, bathrooms, kitchen, and dual-glazed windows and doors supported the bulk of the project, which lasted 4 ½ months.

Home remodel Southwestern Adobe

Southwest Adobe

This adobe-style home was built in 1931 by a family from Albuquerque, and remained with the family for 70 years, until it was purchased by its current owner in 1999. Drawn to its character, the new owner was willing to deal with the home’s idiosyncrasies. However, after 15 years, he wanted change. The living room was dark with a low and peeler logs, which added a tremendous visual weight, making the ceiling appear even lower. The barely functional dark kitchen was closed off from other rooms, and small in comparison to today’s standards.

Park Estates II

You’ve heard it before, “This is a must see home.” However, this extraordinary Park Estates custom home, designed and reconstructed by October 5, is undeniably a work of art. Offering superior design, where form and function converge, it attends to every detail with quality and perfection. The open-floor plan blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces, light abounds in every room, yet the space remains purposely private and intimate.

Homeowners wanted to focus their remodeling efforts on landscaping, allowing it several years to mature, before beginning the interior remodel. Utilizing October 5’s design/build process, they discussed adding more privacy, water conservation, a focus on native plantings and, if possible, a small fruit orchard.

Design Build Remodel Long Beach

Spinnaker Bay

Relocating from Minnesota to the water-front community of Spinnaker Bay in Long Beach, buyers purchased a home built in the 1980’s. Now, nearly 30 years later the house needed renovations. The Design/Build Team of October 5, provided support with design, materials selection, and budgeting. Design/build was the ideal approach; it shortened construction time, provided a well-defined understanding of costs, and a single point of responsibility.

Palm Spring Home Remodel Contractors

Palm Springs

Inspired with the notion of owning a one-of-a-kind dream home, the owners selected the design/build process for their project. The design-build method integrates design and construction early in the process, and allowed October 5 to order building materials, cabinets, hardware, tile, windows, etc. before construction began. Within a short time the cabinets, tiles, windows, hardware, appliances, etc. were delivered to the job site, inspected and locked inside a large shipping container ready for installation. There were no delays due to missing materials.

Home remodel Bixby Knolls

Bixby Knolls

The house required new kitchen, bathrooms, roofing, windows, doors, plumbing, and an up-to-date 200 amp electrical-service. Homeowners began the design-build process with October 5 Fine Home Builders; it shortens construction timelines, presents a clearer understanding of costs and provides for a single point of responsibility.
