Mission Hills Kitchen Renovation

Issue

In arguably one of the most distinct and eclectic neighborhoods in San Diego, Mission Hills homeowners enjoy the beauty of distinct Spanish architecture and rely on Welby Construction Management to bring the joys of modern convenience to their older homes. This beautiful five bedroom four and a half bath home needed a full remodel to bring it from nineties contemporary into the modern style of the present. The homeowner chose beautiful and distinct features to bring each room to life.

The Work

For the kitchen remodel, the homeowners wanted to create a large, open space conducive to both family life and entertaining. The original space was comprised of three separate rooms: a wet-bar room, a kitchen, and a formal dining room. By removing all of the walls in between and adding structural support, Welby Construction Management created one flowing kitchen of approximately 800 square feet. Re-finishing the home’s original hardwood floors allowed the rooms to tie together seamlessly. As homeowners with growing children, it was important to create a space that the family could come together to enjoy meals and quality time. The central island creates a focal point with a large gas range and enough space for prep work, cooking and seating for four. A stepped lower additional counter provides a built-in kitchen table for everyday meals. The dining room is strategically placed within the same area, but remains a separate more formal space for sit down meals and entertaining. The kitchen is finished with aesthetically beautiful features such as high-end oversized appliances, custom stainless steel light fixtures, a total of nearly 40 efficient recessed lights and under cabinet lighting, and a balancing combination of modern espresso and cream cabinetry. Every inch of this stylistic kitchen provides convenient storage and functionality such that any size family would appreciate.

Point Loma Retreat

Issue

Most of the properties purchased by investors are meant to take a great home that is outdated or underutilized, create the best use of space while transforming the old home into something new and beautiful, giving it new life for a new family. Most of these projects are streamlined and require only 8-12 weeks to complete. This Point Loma home is one such project completed in late 2013 by Welby Construction Management.

The Work

The challenge with this home, as is common with investment properties, is to find the best use of the space within the given footprint and create the most aesthetically pleasing look that will appeal to the majority of buyers.

Welby Construction Management has many purchasing connections that allow us to buy the best quality products at a price point that is conducive to the constraints of an investment property budget. As showcased in this home, we use top quality quartz, Caesarstone, and granite slabs in the kitchens and bathrooms, top of the line appliances, and superior, lasting cabinetry and hardware that will align with any homeowner’s personal style.

Our goal while working with investors is to maximize the outcome while keeping the budget in proportion to the investors’ expectations. WCM has a strong reputation for working with investors to finish projects on-time and on-budget, creating a streamlined turn around for investors and a striking home for the new owners.
