A standout home
Whether constructing a residence from scratch or creating an addition to an existing structure, homeowners can trust the experienced professionals at S.Tanaka Construction. The home builder has served Hawaii for more than 28 years and takes pride in the referrals it receives from satisfied customers, who are delighted with the constant communication, quality of work and the fact that projects are finished on time and within or under budget.
Recently, the company completed a brand new multi-generational home in Hawaii Kai that features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, living room, dining room and patio downstairs. The upstairs has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a wet bar (with a wine chiller), living room, dining room and den.
The homeowners of this project originally started with the idea of doing a second floor addition over their existing home built in the 1970s. They wanted this addition to be able to accommodate not only their own children but also their newborn grandchildren. S. Tanaka Construction started by creating a sketch of the new addition along with a cost estimate. After looking the sketch over, the owners wondered how the home would look aesthetically having a brand new second floor while the first floor remained in its current 45-year-old state. The homeowners still wanted to continue with the addition, but desired to make the entire home look fluid and from the same era. That now meant renovating the interior and exterior of the existing home. This fluid look was a priority for the owners and a challenge to say the least. From changing plumbing to re-wiring electrics to structural repairs, the costs added up quickly. One of the major reasons for this is that more time goes into working around or with existing material and, in a lot of cases, the existing materials are no longer manufactured.
After numerous discussions with the owners and making adjustments and changes, the company determined the original idea of an addition/renovation would go way over budget, without even achieving all the owners’ wants and needs. S. Tanaka Construction then suggested taking a look at tearing down their home and building a brand new one. Well, as you can see from the photos, you know which route the owners decided to go. S. Tanaka Construction came up with a sketch for a brand new home which included all the amenities the owners needed customized to their lifestyle and aesthetics. They were able to achieve a brand new home within a budget they could afford.
Now the owners are graciously letting the company show off their home for one day by appointment only.
This home was designed to accommodate two families living under one roof while meeting all city and county building codes. If you are considering building a new home, please call to schedule your own private showing. You will be able to meet and discuss your ideas with a company representative on site. There will be a contractor open house Sunday, Nov. 24 from noon to 5 p.m. Call S. Tanaka Construction to make an appointment today at 848-5010.
