2012 NARI Winner
Mid-century modern home remodeling projects are typically not the types that create headlines. But late last month, at its annual awards celebration in Dallas, Texas, the National Association of Remodeling Industry (NARI) presented its Contractor of the Year award (entire house, project exceeding $1 million) to McCutcheon Construction of Berkeley for a project completed in May 2011: the entire makeover of mid-century modern home in Tiburon, California that had not been modified since its construction.

Originally built in the 1950s, the house – just 2,000 square feet in size – had been inherited by a long-term resident of San Francisco, who questioned whether the residence could ever be compelling enough to lure her out of the City. But in the end, that’s exactly what happened.

Renown designer John Wheatman of San Francisco created the overall aesthetic for this remodel, which was managed by Michael McCutcheon, who is the President of McCutcheon Construction. Other notable sub-contractors involved in the project were Wooden Window of Oakland, Chistman Electrical of Napa, and Greg Rossi Tile of Martinez.

Essential to the success of this remodel, the entire home was reconsidered to optimize usability, indoor-outdoor livability, and proximity to glorious views of the San Francisco Bay and the City beyond. Many aspects of this project were relatively minor in scale. In fact, all construction was managed within the original roofline of the structure. Even so, the transformation was dramatic.
