E-mail Print PDF
The magazine Atomic Ranch came up with renovation ideas for mid century homes which formed an amazing collection of eight homes featured in the book. The Editor Michelle Gringeri-Brown and photographer and AR publisher Jim Brown and their publisher Gibbs Smith have presented a marvelous collection of designs resulting in an excellent visual for the readers.

Here we bring to you one of the houses, a 1958 Eichler from San Mateo recreated by Architect Mark Marcinik of M110 Architecture who had worked with the previous owner on a whole-house renovation of this 1958 Eichler home in San Mateo, beginning in 2000. The house underwent a massive renovation spree and the results were a treat to the eyes.

To begin with a new roof with an insulation barrier was put on and the asbestos floor tile was replaced with slate. The surfaces were painted and after a few years, the kitchen and dining room were modernized. By 2008, a master bedroom was added to the house. The house was redone as a hybrid of steel and wood. Not much was removed from the house and still it was given a contemporary look and style. Take a look at this amazing house which will definitely be an inspiration for many!
