Gaspar's Construction - Green Lake

A generous two-car driveway, expanded master bedroom and second bedroom for the boys, guest bathroom in the basement, and enlarged the kitchen and dining area maximized space, while a new gas fireplace and revamped front room opened up both the view and appeal of this—almost—brand new Tudor home. 

Pathway Design & Construction

This lovely 1912 Craftsman home with its shingle siding and original fir floors, needed a lot of love. With a disjointed floor plan and limited egress, the thought of tearing it down and starting over was appealing. However, the idea of remodeling and reviving the long-forgotten character of the home ultimately won out. 

Harjo Construction

A 1928 pre-war home nestled on a tree-lined street in Ballard gained three times the living space of the outdated addition it replaced. The size and functionality of the kitchen increased, a peninsula provides casual dining, and a flood of new light was gained from double-hung wood windows. A glass-paneled door leads out to a new deck.

Potter Construction

A transformation of both the exterior and interior improves accessibility and space via the new open floor plan. With unique and cozy additions like a built-in study area, this remodel provides a beautiful space filled with natural light and an open interior that allows communication across the main living areas.

Gaspar's Construction - Rainier Vista

This 1929 brick Tudor had great bones and a ton of potential. The goal was to create a more open floor plan for ease and better flow, and to make the home more comfortable. We opened a doorway into the living room, diverting traffic away from the kitchen, then opened up the wall between the kitchen and dining room

This whole house remodel with a second story addition in Edmonds is a must see! The basement was reconfigured to add a second kitchen and much-needed home office. Main floor walls were removed to create an open floor plan with a beautiful gourmet kitchen. The addition of a master bedroom suite with spa-like bathroom gives the homeowners a welcome retreat. A total of four complete bathroom remodels, new gas fireplace with unique stone fireplace, and a deck large enough for entertaining their big family with many friends are just a few of the lovely improvements made to this 1959 home.

Harjo Construction (SAT ONLY)

This remodel of a 1923 Home features a new kitchen and bathroom on the main floor, along with an all-new basement buildout including new bath and laundry rooms in addition to a bedroom. The kitchen has been reconfigured with a modernized layout that includes an expanded entrance between the kitchen and dining areas. The main floor bath contains a large walk in shower made more relaxing through thoughtful placement of the rain showerhead and controls. Outside the shower, a custom built vanity table awaits, made out of reclaimed wood from a dock. Entering the basement, you will find a media area and exercise space.

Kurt Harjo

Kurt Harjo knows that the building and remodeling processes are full of challenges and can be stressful for clients. He also believes much of that stress can be minimized and possibly eliminated if more emphasis and value are placed on clear and consistent client communications. The smallest of projects has a lot of moving parts, so even with the best pre-construction planning in the universe, “stuff” happens. How that stuff gets handled is where Harjo Construction Services proves their integrity in craftsmanship and communication, with consistent, honest feedback and engagement on every client project.

Where there’s integrity, things just work better – and that goes as much for our human communication as it does for home construction.
