Bay Cities Construction removed two walls to create an open concept kitchen.The Bantug family hired Bay Cities Construction to design, remodel, and refresh their 1950's tract home in the madrona neighborhood of Torrance, CA
This older home featured a retro sunken (step down) living room that the owners wanted to get rid of it pronto. There were also two walls (one load-bearing, one non-load bearing) that the owners wanted to remove in order to get the open kitchen they had always dreamed of.
Our team made major structural alterations in order to remove the two walls, our first task after demolition was to install new engineered beams & steel shear-wall panels and then filled in the sunken area by installing new floor joists. The kitchen got a brand new center island, with new custom cabinets, a new apron sink, a new tiled backsplash, new pendant lights, electrical upgrades, interior paint throughout, and new flooring throughout. The new floorplan gives the homeowners enough space to host Sunday brunch and family gatherings.
