Whole-House Remodel Turns 70’s House Into Dream Home

John and Julie Howard bought their Carlsbad, California home a couple of years ago mainly for the view. The outdated 70’s style home was badly in need of a major renovation. The couple hired Marrokal Design & Remodeling to create their dream home. See their new home in this video.

    As a contractor, the appliances they have are extremely expensive… The stove alone Viking is about $7,000… My guess would be that  the budget for this type of renovation would range in the 110 – 130 thousand…

    Amazing what they made out of this old fashioned looking home.

    Lovely remodel. I just bought my first house: built in 1975. I am (personally) not a fan of beige. Too much of it out there, for the sake of "neutrality." I prefer grays, blues, and violets. 🙂 This is such a great remodel!

    The home remodeling is done beautifully and in an elegant way. It has changed the whole over look of the house.

    Any renovation is going to be awesome if you're filthy rich.

    I bet this cost more than some houses

    I agree, all that is missing from this video is the cost.  I would just like to know the ballpark cost for something like this.

    That's a great looking home. It was before the renovation but after just blew me away! Love that bedroom decor and colour scheme!

    What's so wrong about 70's designs? It's a travesty how a lot of older homes that looked already-wonderful are turned into some sort of twisted McMansion abomination.

    how much it cost?

    It is kind of sad that they took all of the character out of this unique, historic home. I hate when people renovate classic homes. I would just enhance them and keep the quality of the decade personally.
