The Carlsbad Cottage

“We loved Sam Koob at our first meeting with him. He is passionate about designing above and
beyond your expectations with details unheard of, lines and shapes that intrigue, and sensible spaces.
We shared our core theme of what we wanted, and throughout the process, Sam continued to wow us
with his creative thinking and attention to detail. He is a super nice guy too –easily available to listen to
our ideas, seek our input, and share his expertise to help guide our thinking, during design AND the
build process. He has saved us from ourselves a few times in our decision-making:) We would highly
recommend Sam for a custom design and build. He is a unique talent and we can’t wait to move into
our dream home in Carlsbad!” CJ M.

This was an extensive remodel and addition to a 1950’s home in Carlsbad, CA. To avoid the
dreaded, time-consuming, and expensive Coastal Development Permit (CDP), sk7 utilized the
50% demo rule.
