—  Irish Beach House  —
Joe Ødegård, Architect
               project was a total reconstruction of an oceanfront house built in the 1970s. The interior floor plan & windows were completely changed, the structure was brought up to current codes, and the exterior was re-sided. There was also an inactive Coastal Development Permit for ground stabilization which was finalized after much erosion control using native plants. Design, studies & approvals took about a year, and construction took less than a year. The project came in on budget, and the owner reports that “It is everyting I wanted, you did a great job.”
