This very small house in South Berkeley just sold. I remodelled it and added a small additon back in 2012.  The realtor, ABIO Properties,  and photographer Peter Lyons generously shared their photos with me.

I was very proud of the solution I came up with on a very tight budget to add a second bedroom in existing space and a big living room at the back  This way the bedrooms both were close to the bathroom and the living area at the back got a great connection to the garden.

Berkeley Craftsman managed to skillfully execute the design within the budget.

I was also excited about the subtle art deco stucco details.

I didn’t invent this stucco window detail. I copied it from a few 1920s houses in Berkeley, but I was quite pleased with its enhancement of what was a very plain front fa├žade. The window sill is clear cedar stained dark.

We did something similar at the back around the 8′ wide glass doors One simple detail goes a long way on a small house
