604 Second Street, an historic renovation

The Carey Brothers and team have undertaken the renovation of 604 Second Street — a 100 plus year old kit style bungalow home located in charming old town Brentwood in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our first season of a 10-part video series.

Brentwood, CA

Rich in history and culture, Brentwood is known throughout the San Francisco Bay Area for its agricultural products (primarily cherries, corn and peaches). In spite of urban sprawl, the quaint downtown, where 604 is located, is peppered with historic buildings and signs of days gone by.


Designing for the new Century

604 is in dire straights and in need of repair and full renovation inside and out. Outside, we’ll repair the foundation, replace porches and railings, install new roofing, wrap the home with new siding and trim, install new energy efficient windows and give it a fresh coat of paint.

Believed to have been constructed from a catalog kit around the turn of the last century, the home consists of:

  • two bedrooms
  • one bath
  • living room, dining area, kitchen, nook, and laundry room
  • is approximately 1177 square feet

There is a single car freestanding garage immediately adjacent to the residence. Both structures sit on a lot that is slightly less that one-quarter acre.

The plans to remodel not only include making many necessary repairs, we will add approximately 341 square feet to accommodate a third bedroom and new master suite — complete with a second bath and walk-in closet. The entire home will be renovated and will include replacement of the severely deteriorated front porch, foundation repairs, complete new plumbing, heating and electrical systems, insulation, new bathrooms, a fully remodeled kitchen and a fully remodeled laundry.
Exterior upgrades include new windows and exterior doors, siding, trim, decking, handrails, roofing, gutters, downspouts, garage door and opener and paths, patios and driveway. All building products will have an emphasis on energy efficiency, sustainability, and green building products and technology. Where possible, existing vintage building materials will be recycled and incorporated into the renovation. The owners are excited about integrating new, modern appliances and conveniences within the charm and era of their home.
