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.

Kieran has been hard at work on our project in San Anselmo, designed by Apparartus Architecture with a focus on materials and relationship to the lanscape.

We’ve built an energy efficient, 800 sq. ft. addition clad in concrete board siding, which adds two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, and additional living space and a deck downstairs.  Throughout the house we performed general touch-up and upgrades.  The rain water off the new roof is being collected and redistributed into a dispersion field in the rear garden.

Here’s a sneak preview…




We’re thrilled that our recently completed ground-up house project, “Carver”, earned the title “LEED-certified home”. The new residence received this distinction for the high level of green building standards and innovations incorporated in its design and construction, including sustainable materials and energy efficient whole-house systems.

Barker O’Donoghue was published alongside other builders and architects in the book “A&D Family Housing”, featuring images of our work and information about the company.


Our “Connecticut” project – an environmentally-conscious addition and remodel to accomodate urban family life – was featured in “Raising the house with the family”, in the San Francisco Chronicle’s Living section.  The new, extremely modern interior is detailed with custom finishes and sustainable materials.
