Palo Alto Rejuvenation

What’s not to love about a house situated across from the Stanford Campus?

Once again, a vintage home (built in the 1920s) received a skillful facelift, bringing a much-loved, but outdated kitchen into the twenty-first century.  As we often do, MN Builders preserved some existing cabinets and appliances (vintage Wedgewood, anyone?), and worked closely with the homeowner and the architect to install modern finishes that respect the historic quality of the home.

The project also included a new custom cottage at the back of the lot, and we were all surprised that the copper-hued standing seam metal roof fit so well with the Craftsman/Colonial shingle style.
