Long on potential but short on everything else, a 90-year-old bungalow begged for a makeover. Rotated, gutted, and redone, this small home is now living large
The goal of our Sunset Dream Remodel was to make the most out of 1,400 square feet on a not-much-bigger lot.
This 90-year-old Spanish-style bungalow in Los Gatos, California, was in need of a makeover and a new location, as it faced a very busy boulevard. (Jump to the before shot.)
Since we couldn’t move the three-bedroom house to another site, we did the next best thing: reoriented it toward a side street. Then we gutted it, adding a modest 117 square feet, and remodeled it stylishly.
Next, see all the ways we created space.
