This is a new 4-bedroom, 2-bath remodeling project located in the city of Carson. At the we bought the property the house included a room that was not permitted by the city.

Exclusive civil engineering costs, permits and additional delays all factored into the decision. After looking at the costs of getting the room up to code it was decided to leave the space open for now and make exterior walls of the remaining framing. We are also looking into tile options to cover the cement slab to give it a natural look and beautify what will be left of the space. We have several weeks to go on the work as you can see from my video. Take the walking tour now —>
