Full Home Renovation

Love at first sight is not just an event; it’s an evolving journey. This statement aptly describes the two-year remodel that transformed this 4,200-square-foot home into a distinguished five-bedroom residence. The Fabuwallous Team, client, and consulting architect Lisa D. Martinez collaborated while developing plans during this evolving renovation. 

Fabuwallous’s client was focused on highlighting and expanding the living room’s exceptional Santa Fe panorama and revitalizing the home’s general ambience. The renovation involved expanding the living room’s seating and entertainment areas. To augment views in that room, Fabuwallous replaced original windows with 8-foot sliding glass doors along the entire western wall. It enlarged the room by removing walls, which necessitated installing a new structural central beam.

Fabuwallous infilled a doorway to create space for a new gas fireplace flue, a kitchen hood vent, and an art frame TV. It removed the original stairway and replaced it with dramatic custom “flying stairs” with a glass railing and hickory steps. Additional downstairs updates included remodeling the TV room, adding a powder room, and upgrading access to a previously enclosed sunroom, which became an open covered living space with a custom designed tile rug and terraced gardens.

Upstairs, Fabuwallous expanded the primary bedroom suite’s living space to include a 500-square-foot closet/exercise area and installed an exterior bedroom door leading to a 1,200-square-foot rooftop deck. The upstairs junior guest suite now features a decorative tile headboard wall and a new clothes closet.

Fabuwallous also updated lower guest and upstairs jack-and-jill bathrooms with new layouts, showers, tile, and fixtures. The residence’s original substandard and non-code-compliant plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems were completely replaced. 

The dust-ridden journey has concluded, the client–contractor friendship endures, and guests are able to marvel at phenomenal city views in a strikingly updated home.
