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.

Nip Tuck Remodeling

Woodinville Dream Come True

Rendering—Home Under Construction

web - Nip Tuck -Simpson before.jpg

Once a dated rambler has now become a client's dream home. The client wanted their living space to be more connected to the backyard and allow for more comfortable entertaining. By removing walls, vaulting the kitchen ceiling, and adding doors and windows this multi-function space was created. Stretching into all three bedrooms with new flooring, trim, doors, and paint this home has been transformed. The use of warm colors, and mixing of transitional styling with some traditional details makes this home a client dream come true.

Cottage Lake Expansion

This rambler needed a major update, so we added skylights and significantly enlarged the kitchen to be a true entertaining space. Relocated windows and a vaulted kitchen ceiling now match the rest of the living room. The loft stairs were relocated to the entry to complete the home’s open feel.

Sockeye Homes

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.”

Harjo Construction

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 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.

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.

Schulte Construction

Our clients purchased this West Seattle home with the intention to formalize a grand entertaining space on the entire first floor. We brought the space down to the studs and reconfigured the dining, living and kitchen to take advantage of the amazing island view. This included new windows and french doors that open up to a new deck that faces the view. New hardwood floors were installed, creating a cohesive look throughout. The kitchen is chef-worthy and has all new cabinets with ample storage, along with built-in benches. The master suite includes walk-in closets, updated bath and shower, along with a double vanity.

The results are beautiful and the clients are thrilled.

Chermak Construction Inc.

This project began with friendship. We had just completed another local remodel and were recommended by word-of-mouth. The home was a typical 1950s-era rambler with small rooms, narrow hallways, and a sunken living room. Our homeowner wanted an open and contemporary space that would accommodate aging in place. By removing an existing slate floor entry, railings, a living area planter, a wall between the kitchen/living room, and the fireplace, we were able to open up the main living area. The sunken living room was raised to be level with the rest of the home. In addition to this new living/kitchen/dining space, we repurposed existing rooms to create a home office, craft room, remodeled bath, and luxurious walk-in-closet. The home was updated with hardwood flooring, lever-style handles on all doors, new appliances, easy-to-maintain countertops, and new windows. Our homeowner loves that her “new home” is so open and bright!
