1954 Hillwood Home Remodel
This 1954 home was redesigned for its 21st-century family. An open-concept floor plan with modern amenities guided this first-floor remodel. It includes an expanded kitchen featuring a cook top peninsula and bar seating. French doors open to a newly expanded outdoor living space and Trex deck. The main bathroom was transformed to include storage space and modernized amenities to appease each family member. We loved working with this local Shoreline family and are so glad that they’re happy with the results!

Woodinville Dream Come True
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.

Get a sneak peek of current progress on this new outdoor living area
Our home owners love the rugged beauty of “timber framing” and wanted an outdoor living area that would reflect that architectural style. The completed two-story structure enhances their view of the forest behind their home and a spiral staircase connects the upstairs master bedroom to the deck.

Practical elegance best describes the extensive remodel of this Edmonds home overlooking Puget Sound and the Olympic mountains.
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.
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.
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 whole-house remodel with a second story addition in Edmonds is a must see!
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.

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.

A 1941 Ballard classic with tons of potential has been fully renovated for a loyal Seattleite. The whole home was remodeled from the inside out.
The refresh begins on the main floor; an expanded kitchen and revised master bathroom and bedrooms exist with the original architectural details intact, creating visual balance. A widened stairway leads downstairs to a newly reconstructed basement.
Comprehensive enhancements include earthquake retrofitting. The modernized exterior wows with new siding and windows, a revamped entry with a bay window, and covered stairway. A brand new deck serves as an observation and entertainment area overlooking the yard. The new driveway, garage door, and walkways complete the look.
This remodel was inspired by and created for a wonderful homeowner who will enjoy this space and the neighborhood for years to come.

You’d never know what exists behind the humble original façade of this small 1906 craftsman house. The near-total remodel is a wonderful blend of vintage charm, comfort, and modern luxuries. Inside and out, the Midvale House captures well the trend to monetize one’s home within an updated modern floor plan, incorporating some of the best energy-saving technology, finishes, and design concepts, while maximizing the connections to the outdoor spaces.
The modern and colorful ADU daylight basement unit, which received the MBA's Best Basement Remodel and Best Green Remodel Awards at the 2016 REX Awards, was dug out to create an almost eight-foot ceiling height. A new foundation, earthquake retrofitting, and a state-of-the art sound attenuation system between the floors was added, along with many impressive energy-saving features. The more traditional upper unit is full of light and connection to the landscape with windows, windows, windows everywhere and no less than five doors connecting the unit to the upper-level deck, front porch, and private back garden. AND, there’s Rosie’s Roost, the chicken castle and focal point of the yard.

We expanded the kitchen into a previously enclosed porch and relocated the exterior door. We replaced a door opening with a pass-through "window" between the dining room and kitchen to keep the two rooms connected and maximize wall space. Outside, we removed vinyl siding and restored the original wood siding and trim. We also replaced all of the windows, front porch (including stairs and railing), garage door, and roofing and added new paint.
