Restoring A Crafstman Home


Yes, it’s a Craftsman!

We recently completed restoration on this classic Crafstman-style bungalow facing Carroll Park in East Long Beach. The owner wanted to preserve the original hardwood flooring, paneling and built-ins while returning the 100-year-old structure to its original beauty.

Rancho Los Cerritos: A California Historic Landmark Restored

Exterior-1931The old house at Rancho Los Cerritos, built by John Temple in 1844 and extensively renovated in 1931, was opened as a museum in 1955 and designated a State Historic Landmark in 1988.

Because of our long experience in dealing with this type of delicate antique structure, Luke Hiller Inc. was contracted to restore the hardwood flooring and cabinetry in the home’s library.

In this job, our task was preservation: expose the embossed concrete floor in the iconic 1924 Carlyle-Nibley Packard automobile showroom in downtown Long Beach, while preserving the original look. We think it came out pretty well.
