Homeworks Construction has moved forward with this St. Louis Heights rebuild from demolition to foundation to framing to siding (see photos) in only four months.

The original house on the 7,000-square-foot lot was built in 1947 by the grandparents of the current owner, a two-generation family. The 2,500-square-foot, single-story frame structure is being replaced by a two-story home with a total of 2,700 square feet plus an accessory dwelling unit (ADU). The attached ADU, located at ground level, provides an additional 800 square feet of living space. Interior space is augmented by a 275-square-foot uncovered lanai and 100-square-foot covered lanai.


The main house will include four bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs, a total of three bathrooms, a large main living area on the lower level, and a custom kitchen. The master bedroom on the upper level overlooks the spacious backyard. The ADU has two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, living room, laundry and its own driveway with a parking stall. The main garage parks two cars with supplemental parking in the driveway from the road.

Homeworks president and chief of field operations Sylvio Boucher says the house was designed to make maximum use of the lot in a densely populated neighborhood with limited street parking. He adds that the property includes a large private triangular backyard with “lots of green space and a few large trees that we preserved.”
