Barron Project – Before and After Modern Scandinavian

Before: This was a 1930’s cottage in the Barron Park Neighborhood of Palo Alto. The home needed severe work. There was a broken foundation, dry rot and termites were holding hands to support the walls. The original house was 2 bedroom and 1 bath house totaling 900 sq ft of house with a detached garage.
