The view to the Northwest is spectacular from the new, 1,000 sq. ft. third story addition we’re building on Potrero Hill in San Francisco, designed by John Lum Architecture.

The addition adds a living room, two large decks with composite decking, a master suite with bath and walk-in closet, as well as a laundry room with second bath.  We’re also remodeling the existing interior on the first two floors, and have installed an all new, hardy board exterior of stucco and stacked slate.
