The Derecat Residence
A new 2-story split level single family residence on a difficult downhill sloping lot. The new design replaced the original rustic residence that was severely damaged in the 1994 Northridge earthquake.
The new design incorporates several wood pole roof support beams and a large river rock wall from the original structure.
The new residence and existing river rock wall are supported on an engineered support pile and grade beam foundation. The finish detailing incorporates many of the rustic and river rock finishes of the original structure.
