When a friend went on and on about how pleased she was with everything about Sunset Properties, these homeowners knew they had found their contractor. While living for years in their small ranch house on the lake, they’d collected many photos of the style of home they dreamed of building. Sunset’s designer captured their vision and partner, Mark Jordan, found a way to make it happen within the homeowners’ budget.
Let the building begin…literally within a few feet of the existing residence, in which the family lived up until the final moments of construction! The two structures were so close that the old back porch soffit had to be shaved off as the new home rose up behind it. Now that’s close quarters!
