Working with Los Angeles architect Rachel Allen, homeowners Amy Lippman and Rodman Flenders remodeled a Carpinteria beach house in two phases over four years. Here, son Haskell Flender, 14, rinses off in an outdoor shower in the new backyard.
This 2004 photo shows the front of the house before the renovation.
Today, the house has the form of a contemporary Spanish retreat with a new stucco exterior painted a deep bronze and a fresh clay tile roof.
