Searching in Vain for Family-Friendly Housing in San Francisco? Remodel Your Existing Bedrooms Instead

Posted by Larry Fox on Feb 24, 2017 8:19:16 AM

There are few pastimes as exciting as choosing a new home for your growing family. Walking through empty rooms full of potential, imagining a Star Wars nursery, planning for all the little and big kid furniture, and dreaming about extra floor space for Legos and Mr. Potato Head are activities that tend to consume new parents on the house hunt. If you’re planning on raising a family, you’re likely wanting to settle down with the careers and the companies you currently have. Unless, of course, you’re starting out in San Francisco.

Bay Area Families Use Custom Reach-In Closets To Reorganize and Donate This Season

Posted by Larry Fox on Dec 16, 2016 2:56:39 PM

It’s that time of year again, and the nights are getting colder in the Bay Area. It dips into to the low 40s in San Francisco, and even if you’re not cold, you know that some people out there are. All around us, there are people who don’t have enough blankets to snuggle up under or the right clothes to ward off the chills, who aren’t as fortunate as you or I may be. The holiday season makes us cinch up imaginary collars, and reflect on what we can do to help.

I see this all the time around the Bay Area, especially when I’m talking to people who want to redesign their reach-in closet. Their lives are full of clutter, and so many say, “What am I going to do with all this stuff once I get my closet organized?” A lot of the time—especially around the holidays—they decide to donate their extra clothes to those who need it most.

Keep Peace in the Family with a Custom Reach-in Closet for Your Los Gatos Teen or Tween

One of the truisms of home ownership is that your stuff expands to fill your space. I’ve seen it time and again. A client of ours in Los Gatos moved from a smaller house to a larger one in the Rinconada Hills neighborhood and was excited about the extra room. But the clutter followed her family like a magnet until their new house was as crowded as the old. When she and her husband came to us for help, I mustered up my years of experience and asked the crucial question: did they have any children?

Custom Cabinets Help Turn Your Spare San Mateo Room into a Nursery and Child’s Room

Posted by Larry Fox on Aug 11, 2016 4:13:28 PM

South of San Francisco, at the northern edge of Silicon Valley, San Mateo is perfectly placed to attract folks exhausted by a tight housing market (and I mean perfectly placed—it’s got a wonderful sunrise view of the Bay). With more affordable real estate and a great school system, it’s no wonder many young couples look to San Mateo when they start thinking about families. The problem is that the rolling front lawns and spacious living rooms of their dreams aren’t always a reality.
