El Portal Helling Residence Remodel
The Helling residents own a private home in the El Portal Administrative located at 5637 Foresta Road. It is within a residential neighborhood administered by the National Park Service to provide housing for NPS employees, contractors and partners.
This project is an addition to the existing home, adding a bedroom and small bathroom. The addition will add 499 square feet. The foundation site for the new construction will require leveling and some ground disturbance of up to 12 inches. The footings will also require trenches up to 12 inches deep.
The addition will keep the house as a single family residential structure/dwelling and will retain the massing, scale and character found in other single family residential structures within the neighborhood.
Once construction starts the addition is estimated to be completed within 9 to 12 months.
