Movin' on Up: A Two-Story Addition

The original floor plan of this one-story U-District craftsman home was short on space and simply didn't fit our clients' lifestyle. The master bedroom was in the low-ceilinged basement, and the tiny dining room was disconnected from the kitchen.

A new two-story bump-out addition provided the space for an expansive kitchen and dining room combination. The new second-floor private master suite with wet-room shower and separate sitting area is a lofty retreat bathed in natural light. Best of all, the new addition maintains the home's cozy craftsman charm, incorporating original cedar siding and trim details.

1916 Craftsman Reconfiguration

This charming 1916 Craftsman was reconfigured to increase the footprint via a redesigned kitchen and new, open living room. To create an open concept the fireplace and chimney were removed from the living room and the stairs to the basement were rerouted around the kitchen. A partial pony wall between the staircase and dining further opened the space.

The kitchen was expanded from an L-shape to a U-shape giving the family twice the number of cabinets, with a pantry for extra storage, and built-in bench seating for eat-in kitchen dining. To gain additional interior space the original front porch and a side entry were enclosed to create a foyer with a closet, and a functional mud room with built-ins and cubbies. To tie the rooms together new hardware floors were installed throughout the main floor.

36th Avenue Design Build

Located in Wallingford, this 1920s craftsman bungalow was last left with an uninspired 90s remodel. The project goal was to increase the overall square footage while modernizing the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. Additional goals were to improve the main floor layout and function to meet today's modern lifestyle, while still maintaining the original bungalow charm and quaintness of the home through specific and attentive architectural details. To accomplish the goals at hand and with extensive input from our clients, we collaborated to design a 500+ square-foot second-floor master suite addition, as well as a complete redesign of the main level floor plan.

From the street, the home feels unassuming and fits the tradition of the neighborhood. But once inside, the amount of space, light, and function quickly becomes tangible. The project required demolition to bare studs and partial second story removal. Through thoughtful and intentional design, we began crafting a space that works in concert with our clients' desires. The second floor includes three bedrooms and two baths, vaulted ceilings, skylights, and large windows to provide open space and ample daylight as requested through client input. Other finishes include hardwoods throughout, heated tile floors, and custom shower glass. On the main level, you find a spacious family room, dining room, informal TV area, and a chef-inspired gourmet kitchen. The hardwoods continue throughout, with an open-rail staircase, douglas fir double hung windows, wainscoting trim paneling, and crown molding. As part of the design, we were also respectful of original architectural elements in order to pay homage to the 1920s home. To complement these items, we repurposed the home's salvaged lumber to create a few custom pieces of furniture and built-ins. These include the floating shelves in the kitchen, custom open vanity and mirror in the powder room, as well the Stickley-inspired dining room table. This home provides the craftsman-inspired details that have been long celebrated throughout the Pacific Northwest.

As a bonus, a music room was added. Sea glass colors splash throughout the Craftsman-styled home. New appliances, hardwood flooring, windows, and skylights provide a “new home” experience without the move.

Carlisle Classic Homes

The focus of this complete remodel was on restoring or recreating accurate historical elements of this 1900 Queen Anne Craftsman, including custom interior moldings and floor inlays.

Dropped ceilings were recaptured and a custom library was built into the den to create spaces with both volume and character. The exterior of the home was restored to match archived photos. The dilapidated garage was torn down for a new, insulated and heated two-car garage.

CRD Design Build: Site 3

This small 1948 Craftsman home was busting at the seams with a growing family, pets, and every room small enough to keep the family tripping over each other. The remodel turned this tiny closed-in kitchen into an open, central eating/working hub with a 200 square foot kitchen addition into the large backyard. Undoing an existing pantry space turned a dangerous and gloomy stairwell into a welcoming space that now connects the downstairs with the main floor.
