Beautiful Backyard Remodel in Carlsbad

Greyhound’s latest project was a backyard transformation for a home in Carlsbad. The design was done by Laura Wireman of Innerspace Designs, and Greyhound provided the actual building plans, permits and engineering.

Some of the projects highlights are:

  • steel pavilion
  • palapa: powder coated steel with “Hardi siding”
  • landscaping
  • landscape lighting
  • fireplace: using natural gas
  • spa

The palapa weighed 1,900 lbs and the support bolder was over one ton, so that in itself made the project a little more challenging. You can see this incredible transformation here:

Special thanks to our sub-contractors and designers, including the aforementioned Laura Wireman; PoolSpecs of San Diego, who constructed the spa; and National Quarries in San Marcos, who provided the granite and did an incredible job on the BBQ countertop, the round palapa bar top, and supporting bolder.

Drought-Resistant Landscaping

Right now in San Diego county we are being “asked” to conserve 20% of our water usage. In many areas of the state it is mandatory, and without a “miracle” we will be next.

In February, the federal government cut off all the water to Central Valley farmers being supplied water from the delta. We are somewhat protected down here because most of our water comes from the Colorado river, BUT the snow-pack in Colorado and Wyoming is way below normal so we will soon be in trouble down here as well. Regardless, our water rates are going up 20-30%.

In Valley Center, our water bill was around $450 per month the first year we moved up here, and that was to water two small lawns and some trees. Now, with the cactus and no lawn, our water bills last summer were less than $85 per month. As you can see, our cactus project will pay for itself in 3-5 years. Once established (4-6 months), you don’t have to water any of the cactus in the video at all. They survive on the meager rainfall we get and morning fog.

If you’d like to save money on your water bill by using less water talk to Greyhound General today. Just fill out the form here or call 800-568-7108.

Stunning Mission Hills Home Remodel

Greyhound General’s latest work is an amazing home remodel of a early 1920’s home in Mission Hills. The house, despite it’s beautiful view of the San Diego bay, had very little work done to it since it was constructed.

The project involved:

  • stripping the house to the studs
  • pushing out the lower floor by 10′ to enlarge the master bedroom and bathroom
  • relocating most of the interior rooms of the house (including the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms)
  • extensive engineering (beams on the roof) was required to eliminate many of the walls on the second floor. This created one large open room for the living room and kitchen
  • pushed out the living room on the second floor to make it larger
  • added extremely high-quality bath and kitchen accessories, including cantina doors, wine grotto in the original part of the basement, exterior deck with glass rails, new windows and more!

As you’ll see by the following video, our description of the work doesn’t quite do it justice. Just see for yourself this amazing transformation:
