The Finish Line

As the real estate adage goes, it’s all about location, location, location. When Native Son Builders found an abandoned four-plex of homes centrally located downtown and within walking distance of the Roundhouse, company owner Murray Sutton knew he’d stumbled upon a gem. Previous builders had begun to remodel the dwellings but had abandoned the project. With many of the structural and permitting hurdles surmounted, Native Son was able to bring the project to sophisticated completion. 

Sutton, who oversaw the design and build, found the roof and windows in good shape. Plumbing and electrical installation carried out by the previous remodeling company had been done correctly. The project had good bones.

Native Son was able to focus on finishing work that turned the 600-square-foot casitas into bright and modern spaces — a departure from the previous drab, outdated, and unfinished structures. Native Son plastered interior and exterior walls and installed new cabinetry, flooring, doors, hardware, and electrical fixtures. The six- to eight-month project came in on time and on budget. The company completed the remodel in 2019 and has operated the compound as rental properties since that time.
