Pasadena, California | Craftsman

The conversion of this prohibition-era barn into a livable home was a welcome challenge for us. With a reinvention and renovation of this complexity, the Chelsea team leveraged their seasoned construction know-how and honed troubleshooting skills to tackle issues like marrying new framing with older framing styles and building creatively engineered solutions to open rooms for contemporary living. The home paid homage to its past with rustic materials like stone and brick, reclaimed flooring, and Craftsman-inspired ironwork and detailing. 

"In our last two homes Chelsea Construction has handled extensive remodeling including three kitchens and two bathrooms. This is a company that operates with the highest of ethics and the finest European craftsmanship. We are amazed at the depth of knowledge of the sub-contractors who are experts in upper-end remodeling and restoration, most being trained in the European apprenticeship style.

"We heartily recommend Mark, his employees, and his great team of sub-contractors. If you are into upper-end remodeling and enjoy European craftsmanship at its finest, Chelsea Construction is the only company I could consider, based on our experience with remodels of two bathrooms and three kitchens and helped with restoration of our home, originally a winery built in the 1860's. The Chelsea team coupled with several excellent subcontractors can handle the toughest restoration and high-end remodeling projects.“
