Carmen Crest was a small den/bathroom addition and kitchen/dining room remodel to an historic Kelsey Ladd house above the Hollywood Bowl. This was a very similar single story structure similar to our own Chateau Rod house which was John Kelsey’s own house. Bonura Building was already familiar with the detailing and aesthetic discipline so it was a natural fit for Bonura Building to be awarded the project.
We always joke and make a commentary “we are not building the Getty” but in this case, the detailing and fit & finishes had to be museum quality. This increased the cost of the project significantly, but the outcome was perfect in everyone’s eyes.
The owners were very hands on and of course creatives, so it was a total please working with them. Bonura Building went on to perform anther design/build project right after the completion of this one.
