Santa Barbara Beach Houses

Over the decades, many of our projects have focused on new builds and remodels with ocean views. Every so often, however, our crews and subcontractors get the fortunate experience of working right on the beachfront, where the job-site morning coffee boasts a sunrise over the water, lunch breaks brim with seabirds and dolphins, and that cool onshore breeze closes out the workday. Here’s two of our favorites.

PADARO BEACH HOUSE: Working within the existing footprint, the homeowner’s goal of “light and airy and open” was achieved through a delicate balancing act of removing posts and shear walls while maintaining structural integrity, all without compromising the built-in maritime ambiance. The floor plan rearrangement — both subtle and technical — opened conversations between the kitchen and dining room and flooded the living room with broader ocean views through bigger windows. Upgrades to the guest wing focused on bed/bath renovations, while perks to the homeowner’s personal space included a small library and a fireplace in the master. Architecture by Hugh Twibell.

RINCON BEACH HOUSE: The principal work on this 4,500-square-foot beach house replaced its tile floors with wood throughout. Additional upgrades included cabinetry in each of the four bathrooms, finishings inside and out, and a new deck overlooking the cove, plus a subsequent visit for a new roof and skylight.
