    BORN AND RAISED IN A SLEEPY AREA OF KAILUA called Coconut Grove, homeowner Mignon Bertranou has an appreciation for simple yet charm-ing homes. “I love the little plantation-cottage feel,” she says. So much that she became enthralled with this fi xer upper on Wilhelmina Rise with stratospheric views of Diamond Head. “I fell in love with it because it is so much like the tiny little house I grew up in, also built in the 1950s,” explains Bertranou.

    Bertranou was attracted to the home’s vintage charm, and also the historic neighborhood itself, which was originally developed by the Matson Navigation Company in the 1930s, with streets named after its former ships — the Wilhelmina, Lurline, Mariposa and Monterey.

    Happening upon a canvas of a Matson cruise ship at the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet right after she purchased the home, which shows the ’50s-era romance and nostalgia symbolized by these passenger ships, Bertranou decided there was no need to reinvent the wheel: Her heart was set on keeping the integrity of the home intact and enhancing the vintage feel.

    Instead of destroying the old to build something bigger and bolder, Bertranou could see the existing home’s potential beyond the dilapidation.

    “I came in saying, ‘tear it down,’” says Phil Barker of Barker Kappelle Construction LLC, who was hired to do the job. “But Mignon had a vision of keeping the original house. She was adamant that this was what she wanted so we ended up going with it.”

    Like any older home, it needed major work, but the outside deck was the only part that need-ed to be built from scratch. “I wanted a place to sit outside, entertain and take advantage of the magnifi cent view,” says Bertranou. “Phil wanted the railing to have a design, but in the end we kept it simple to match the rest of the house.”

    Bertranou was a hands-on homeowner during the entire remodel, from the demolition phase to sourcing materials. “Mignon did the entire demo on this project and that must be mentioned,” jokes Barker. “I came in here and it

    1. A new deck was built to take in the sweeping views of Diamond Head. 2. The great room is light and airy with new windows and doors from Milgard. 3. A plantation-style entry was built with new posts and quartzite tiles. “It really added to the house,” says Phil Barker of Barker Kappelle Construction. 4. The bath-rooms were refreshed with new plumb-ing, cabinets and a vintage-style tile floor from Daltile. 5. The covered lanai has new rock-salt concrete flooring to enhance the old style. “Old houses used to have the rock salt. It gives it that vintage look,” adds Barker. 6. A wall was removed from between the kitchen and the family room to create a large, open-concept room, and the original hardwood floors were refinished.

    was completely stripped apart. She would have the sledgehammer swing-ing. It was perfect; she pulled it all down.”

    Although true to an extent, Barker Kappelle brought in the heavy machinery to knock down an illegal addition between the home and the garage that blocked the view from the kitchen window. “The window was there, but it opened up to the addition that we tore down,” Bertranou explains. Now, the garage is separate from the home and the kitchen has a view of the landscaping as well as the new driveway by Harbor Concrete.

    “The garage was a really rundown carport originally, so we just boarded the inside with the board and batten siding to give it that planta-tion look,” says Barker. “Now it’s one of my favorite features of the home.”

    Taking down the addition also allowed Barker Kappelle to enhance the front entrance and give it a more welcoming feel. “The entire front entrance is new; the house had a fl at, blank front before,” says Bertranou. More curb appeal was added with concrete pavers leading up to the front door and copper rain chains from Big Rock Hawaii.

    “The front was all enclosed so we tore that down and pitched back in this new roofl ine and redid the posts. It’s a pretty minor detail, but it was really e� ective and gives a nice plantation-style entry. It pops out more and really adds to the house,” explains Barker.

    Homeowner Mignon Be rtranou was inspired by this canvas to keep the vintage feel of her 1950s home on Matsonia Drive, in a neighborhood developed by the Matson Navigation Company.

    Vintage Charm Downstairs is perfect for extended ohana with a kitchenette and living area.

    The four-bedroom, two-bathroom home is split into two levels. Upstairs includes the main kitchen, the living room, three bedrooms and one bath-room. Downstairs there’s a smaller ohana-style kitchenette, living area, one bedroom and one bathroom. It would be the perfect rental, if needed. “My two young-adult sons have their hearts set on this for their bachelor pad,” Bertranou laughs.

    “Part of the project was to try to keep as much of the original home as possible, so we had to work with the request,” explains Barker. “Trying to match the home’s original style, we had to replace a lot of tongue and groove (T&G) — refi nishing and replacing the wood but keeping the same look.” Barker Kappelle also updated all the electrical and plumbing, and ran a sub-meter downstairs so a washer and dryer could be added.

    One great feature of the home is the original oak fl ooring. “There was wooden fl ooring throughout the upper level,” says Bertranou. “But we had no idea if it was restorable because the visible condition of it was pretty bad.

  • Phil actually wanted to put new floors on top of it at one stage, but they turned out beautifully.”

    Barker Kappelle also tore down a wall between the kitchen and living room to create an open-concept room that makes the home feel more spacious, and expanded the doorway opening from eight feet to 16 feet to capture more of the ocean view. Many of the exterior doors were changed from slab doors to French doors throughout.

    “It came out really good,” says Barker. “It’s a plantation-style home with modern conveniences.”

    Jennifer Shaw, project manager for the job, adds “This was a fun project. To see the before and after pictures and try to wrap your brain around it. It just turned out so charming. Instead of just gutting it and giving it a whole new look, it has a lot of character.” It is exactly what Bertranou had hoped for.
