A Small House Grows Up and Out

A modern remodel takes shape on the California coast -- with light, views, privacy, and budget in mind

Homeowners Erik and Tena Watts needed more space for a growing family, but they couldn't afford to move from their 1300 square foot home, nor did they want to. They loved the beachfront location, so they opted for a remodel -- one that would be eye-catching and modern, but relatively economical. The result is a barrel-roofed, light-filled, concrete-sided contemporary that suits the couple's lifestyle and sensibility.
