RafterhouseFlipping over Arcadia
With our housing market so well known, it is no surprise that a local company made up of creatives, entrepreneurs and family has made it to the national scene. Rafterhouse is a home remodeling company that is full service, focused on finding, restoring and upgrading homes in the Arcadia area. The company’s designers have an affinity for the ranch-style homes, and their meticulous touches and authentic appeal are what is making them so successful. What Rafterhouse does is more than simply “flipping houses.” “Because it is such a desirable neighborhood, we only work in Arcadia,” says Austin King, co-owner of Rafterhouse. In keeping with the aesthetic, King notes, “Even if we tear something down, we update it but rebuild back to the original charm.”
The company puts heart and soul into each project, and it has garnered critical and national acclaim. Its concept was captured in a television show of the same name — “Rafterhouse” — that aired a year ago on HGTV. Chris Liles, a builder, and Austin King, a real estate agent, came together with their wives and children to express their love of community by remodeling mid-century ranch homes. “We love this neighborhood. We live here, shop here, dine here; and the kids go to school here,” King boasts. “Buyers are interested in this area because of the homes here, and it promotes an active lifestyle.”
