San Francisco Remodel
This Noe Valley Remodel pushes the envelope of what most would call a remodel, but when you start with an old small house a little goes a long way.
The house is being slightly lifted to allow for a full height understory and a new story is being added to dramatically increase the space, view and use.
The City of San Francisco and most jurisdictions have rules for what is allowed. In the case of San Francisco the permit process is much easier for a renovation, the only issue is that you can only change so much before it’s considered a demolition. However there’s sometimes tax consequences, so check with a financial adviser.
