Complete Remodel With Home Additions

This is a complete remodel with multiple additions to the original structure and roof. We built an addition to the entrance of the home requiring a new roof and decorated support columns, giving the home a complete new look by itself. We also added part of a dettached garage to the homes living space and keeping half of the garage for storage. The addition of the previously detached garage to the home added an additional 900 sq ft of living space. The original concrete floor had to be cut to run new electrical and plumbing to accomodate the interior remodeling design. The home was completed with an all new look and new roof.

Unsafe Structure & Code Compliance Violations Rehabilitation

Front of home with violations before rehabilitationThis home was purchased with an existing unsafe structure cases open with Miami Dade county Building Department. The owners had to hire an attorney to file an injunction to put a halt to the demolition order that the county had placed on the property. In due time if the owners did not begin to correct the problems by submitting plans and permits, the department was in its right to demolish the existing house and leave the bill for the owner to pay. The county would then place a lien on the property in order for them to recuperate their monies.

Rausa Builders, Corp. was hired to correct all the code compliance violations and the unsafe structure case. This was considered a full rehabilitation construction project. We demolished the rear illegal addition and rebuilt the rear envelope of the existing structure. In this demolition there were two illegal bathrooms and one bedroom utilized as an efficiency. We re-wired the complete residence with new electrical wires, electrical panel and meter box.

In July of 2009 we were asked to inspect this R.E.O. (Real Estate Owned) property in the City of Miramar by the bank. The previous owners have attacked this beautiful home in an upscale neighborhood with a machete. They have used the machete to hack away at all the wall outlets and switches. They broke holes in walls, slammed the granite counter on the marble floor and chopped away at the air conditioning system.
