Expanded bedrooms, an enlarged kitchen, and a revamped front room opened up both the view and appeal of this almost-brand-new Tudor home.

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.”

Gaspar's Construction

This 1926 home had seen a lot of different eras and remodels over the years. Our homeowners wanted to bring some of the original charm back to the kitchen and living spaces while also adding modern conveniences. The charm part is addressed with crown molding, beautiful tile, light fixtures, a farmhouse sink and Shaker-style cabinets. Modern conveniences include removing two walls to create a larger kitchen, as well as to create connection between the kitchen and the rest of the living space. A new range hood is flush with the ceiling so that it doesn’t block sight lines in the kitchen. Finally, we converted the wood-burning fireplace to a modern gas fireplace.

Gaspar's Construction

This 70s house with great bones missed the mark with a choppy layout and by obscuring a fantastic view. We opened the floor plan and the entire back wall to the water view. Between the 21-foot sliding door and a sleek combination of wood and painted cabinets, there’s no way to miss the intention. It is now a space that is both calm and vibrant, ready to accommodate a party for 40 or a quiet fireside dinner for two.

McAdams Remodeling & Design

This well-located 70s rambler had a huge stone fireplace that dominated the space, dividing the kitchen, living, and family rooms. By removing the fireplace and vaulting the ceiling, an open, inviting, and spacious great room was born. The enlarged kitchen features new skylights, beautiful granite countertops, and cherry cabinets, along with a raised eating bar. A relocated gas fireplace and entertainment center now compliments the main seating area. Swedish-finished hardwood floors throughout complete the transformation.

The lure of this home for the current owners was its proximity to their older parents and its dramatic location on the Puget Sound.

This elegant Mercer Island rambler features fine detailing at each turn. The original 1980s rambler was completely renovated, inside and out. All the interior walls were altered and taken down to the studs. All exterior surfaces, with the exception of the roof, were also removed and reconstructed. This project came in on budget and within the projected move-in date.

City Builders Inc.

This 70s home needed updating. Starting with the kitchen, living room, dining room, and great room, we creatively removed some load-bearing walls and restructured framing. Then came very original solutions for two boring fireplaces. In the existing space we re-designed the functionality and established a more spacious layout. Custom Ribbon Sapeli contemporary cabinets, hardwood floors, fabulous countertops, and new appliances helped us reinvent this amazing kitchen. A must see!

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.
