El Portal Administrative Site Esquivel House Construction
Tim and Mia Esquivel own a private home in the El Portal Administrative Site. The house is located within a residential neighborhood administered by the National Park Service (NPS) to provide housing for park employees, contractors, and partners.
The Esquivels have already demolished the existing house. They want to build a new house upon the site of the former building. In order to obtain a Mariposa County building permit to construct this new house they must first obtain the approval of the NPS.
The proposed new house would remain a single family residential structure and will retain the massing, scale, and character found in other single family residential structures in the neighborhood. Once approved the construction of the addition should take between 9 and 12 months to complete.
