Mid-Century Goes Modern – Los Gatos, CA
We bought a long neglected home in Los Gatos and Ammirato Construction handled the entire project, inside and outside. Our job was extensive, a complete gut down to the studs and including a new roof and windows, relocated kitchen, three remodeled bathrooms, a newly designed entry, completely new exterior, etc. It was a massive undertaking.
John’s crew was always on site by 8am and were dedicated to quality workmanship. The job site was kept impeccably clean and that was truly appreciated by our neighbors as we were not living there during the majority of the work. The attention to detail is amazing and John and his project manager were always available to talk through issues and changes as we progressed. They are both very current on the latest technologies with regard to homes and we appreciated that as we incorporated several interesting concepts in our home. John has a terrific eye for design and was personally responsible for creating our new entry staircase (an entire flight off the driveway), a floating countertop with undermount lights in a bathroom, and an incredible modern fireplace that is made of composite tiles on all four sides and stands 20-feet tall.
Because we were so pleased with the work done on our home, we hired Ammirato Construction to manage our outdoor project as well. This included: a series of retaining walls, an outdoor kitchen with trellis and plumbing, a custom gas firepit with trellis, irrigation, extensive outdoor lighting and sound both of which are controlled by an app on our phones, regarding the property to create a sloping walkway to the new ipe deck, a 300-foot pathway up the steep incline to the top of our property and a patio at the top with access to water and wifi. Another huge undertaking, but again, John and his team demonstrated their engineering skills, and ability to keep on a timeline and budget.
Needless to say, our neighbors were very curious to see our new home as they watched its transformation from the street. We welcome anyone considering using Ammirato Construction to come to see our home as a testament to John’s pride in his work.
