Sockeye Homes

This nationally award-winning, 5,000 square foot contemporary, open-concept home showcases incredible lake views, incorporates a variety of textures and illumination, and integrates the exterior living spaces into the predominantly white interior finishes.

The Japanese Nichiha exterior siding provides a contemporary feel with low maintenance. The existing 1950s home has been transformed into a modern showstopper!

Pathway Design & Construction

Like most kitchens built in 1968, this one was closed off, making it a prime candidate for remodeling. Focusing on a brighter, better ventilated kitchen, the dream of taking down the wall between the kitchen and adjacent rooms allowed the homeowners to add an island and cozy eating area, creating a more functional space. Dark wood flooring, new cabinets, countertops, a new range, and a modern sink with glass tile backsplash completed the transformation.

Richard Landon Design

A three-bedroom rambler with street views becomes a two-story contemporary, featuring a new 14-foot high center section and treetop views—even though the home is surrounded by neighbors! Inventive solutions are seen throughout: downspouts run through ingenious "struts" around the perimeter; remote-controlled shades are concealed above windows; and kitchen and bath details by a Certified Master Kitchen & Bath Designer, including a one-of-a-kind kitchen sink.

Gaspar's Construction

This five bedroom, four bath Bellevue home had a very small outdated kitchen on the back of the house that was disconnected from the entertaining spaces. The home owners love to cook and entertain and wanted a large, open kitchen to enjoy spending time with their friends and family. In order to enlarge the kitchen, the laundry and powder rooms were relocated into an unused office at the front of the house.

LZL Construction Inc.: Bellevue

This Newport Shores project included new windows, siding, roof, hardscapes, and landscape, along with new interior finishes, changing painted woodwork to cherry, and many new amenities. Newly added space included a two-car garage addition to the existing garage with a bonus room added over the now four-car garage. LZL Construction Inc.’s design/build team worked with the homeowner to design and negotiate a well-budgeted and -scheduled project. The owners appreciated the process and love their newly renovated home.
