We toured the Eddie House this weekend as part of AIA SF’s 10th annual San Francisco Living: Homes Tours, and came away impressed with Three Legged Pig’s handiwork. The living and dining rooms flow comfortably into the kitchen. As part of the renovation, a three-story 1,100-square-foot addition was added to the rear of the house, and  solar thermal panels were installed to provide hot water for the home. Another light and spacious living room adjoins the kitchen on the rear side of the house, and opens into a small reading room with large windows that look out on the back yard.

The back yard has been transformed into a highly productive urban vegetable garden, with raised beds that overflow with tomatoes, squash and leafy greens. At the rear of the lot, the owners keep chickens in a small chicken coop, located next to a small playhouse. And in between the raised beds, the owners can play bocce on an improvised bed of mulch.

Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the home is its efficient use of space. The ground floor has been converted into a second bedroom, with an attached kitchen and living room. Radiant heating was installed in the Terrazzo-Crete flooring, which has a unique polished finish. Upstairs, a hallway that runs between the kitchen and the front door doubles as a laundry room or pantry. Every room receives natural lighting, and a wall was removed on the top floor to allow more light in.
