Practical elegance best describes the extensive remodel of this Edmonds home overlooking Puget Sound and the Olympic mountains.
This mid-century Edmonds home was a perfect candidate for a kitchen renovation featuring a bright, open floor plan and a fresh take on traditional finishes.
A kitchen is the heart of the home and this kitchen beats strong. The mix of finishes in this remodeled kitchen showcase the personality of the homeowners in this Edmonds home.
This 90-year-old classic craftsman in Seattle endured three iterations of kitchens before RCH partnered with the current, long-time owners on a design that conveys and matches older eras.
Expanded bedrooms, an enlarged kitchen, and a revamped front room opened up both the view and appeal of this almost-brand-new Tudor home.
With two growing kids, this Seattle family was rapidly outgrowing their home. Previous clients, they came back to CRD to design a second-story addition and a whole-house remodel.
This 1917 Woodland Park Classic received the royal treatment, enlarging the kitchen, adding a new back deck, and transforming the master bathroom and bedroom.
This lovely 1912 Craftsman home, with shingle siding and original fir floors, needed a lot of love. Tearing it down and starting over was appealing, but reviving the home's long-forgotten character ultimately won out.
The homeowners collaborated with Schulte Design Build to design and transform their kitchen into a light, open, functional, standout space for their family’s growing needs.
A 1928 pre-war home in Ballard gained three times the living space of the outdated addition it replaced, plus a flood of new light from double-hung wood windows.
A transformation of both the exterior and interior improved accessibility, space, and natural light via the new open (but still cozy) floor plan.
Remodeling an old home often resembles a good mystery plot and this early 1900s home was no exception. We reworked the guts of this Capitol Hill home for modern, multi-functional sensibilities, with strange discoveries addling us at every turn.
This project included removing a wall that separated the kitchen and living spaces, reworking the kitchen layout to add an island and improved functionality, and updating finishes with sensible and sustainable solutions
This 1929 brick Tudor had great bones and a ton of potential. The goal was to create a more open floor plan for ease, better flow, and to make the home more comfortable.
The remodel of this midcentury home included the removal of walls to create a living space between kitchen and dining areas, along with the placement of an extra-large kitchen island to create a central focal point.
Have you ever imagined what can be done with your "Not-Big-Enough" dining room and "Never-Gets-Used" living room? By adding 5 new beams and additional concrete in the crawl space, we were able to relocate the load-bearing walls and create a true “Open Concept Great Room Design.”

This whole-house remodel with a second story addition in Edmonds is a must see!
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.
Meet the Builder
Kurt Harjo knows that 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.
Behind the Scenes
Take a tour through the Design/Build process that puts you in the director’s chair from the concept through the final decisions.
An 8-foot extension of the main floor allowed for a larger and lighter configuration of primary entertaining area. Accessible by a 12-foot-wide folding French door system, the outdoor patio becomes an extension of the new space.
Integrated with the existing roof is a new deck surface designed for enjoying morning tea.
Lighter and brighter with improved storage and functionality.
Following completion of the kitchen addition, this sequel performance is scheduled to be complete in time for this event.
