With the completion of construction of a new home for her husband, a new wife and a newborn baby, Jacqueline Pappas is preparing to start work on the house.
The new house was built on a lot near the corner of First and Castro streets in San Franciscos Westwood neighborhood.
Pappas, an interior designer, said she has never built a home before, but she was inspired by a similar project by the late architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
She says the Wright-designed house she built for her family in the 1920s is similar to the new one she is building.
The house is located in the neighborhood that has seen a surge in population and has seen large-scale redevelopment.
Papples daughter, Emily, also plans to start her own business, she said.
In her first year, she plans to hire at least 25 people, including her husband and their two daughters.
But, she says the house is also needed to support the construction of the next home, her new home.
“It’s going to be a house for me and Emily to live in for the next six years, six months,” she said of the new home, which will be built at a cost of $250,000.
She said she is trying to keep costs down because she hopes to sell the house before she dies.
“The idea is to do a new house for a new family, and a new career, and then a new start for Emily,” Pappases said.
“And for a young family, they’re always looking for a little bit of a break and a little relief, and this is a little break for me.”
The house will be completed by late March and the couple hopes to have the house ready for a sale in the next three to four months.
The couple plans to spend the next two years rebuilding the home, and the building of a house is one of the things they plan to do while they are renovating the home.
The building of the house, which is about four and a half stories tall, will take at least two years.
Papas hopes to finish the work by the end of the year.
She plans to work for the family until she dies and is ready to retire.
She wants to keep the family in San Jose so they can work from home.
