The project for the Connery Residence called for an extensive remodel to an aging and plain Tahoe Donner house. The clients wanted to add more functionality and space for their growing family, capture more natural light and views, as well as to re-make the entire home — inside and out — to suit their aesthetic. All of this was also to be accomplished with an eye towards eco-consciousness. The result is a home that has gained 1,000 square feet of new living, an expanded garage, increased energy efficiency, utilized the existing structure and salvaged materials, and has gained an entirely new look!
