Potter Construction: West Seattle

West Seattle Reconfiguration

This charming home features a kitchen and bathroom remodel. Extensive work was done to expand the kitchen and bathroom by removing walls, bumping out the back of the home, and reconfiguring the hallway and closet to allow for a larger and better laid-out kitchen and bathroom for this growing family.

Potter Construction: Issaquah

Timeless Issaquah Kitchen Remodel

Issaquah (3).jpg

The original kitchen of this 13-year-old home was 50 shades of stained wood. While the layout was open, it was dark and dreary. The homeowner wanted a bright kitchen with enough light for Northwest winters. We created a timeless, formal kitchen by changing the layout while maintaining the home’s footprint.

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.

This darling 1905 Capitol Hill home has a lot of charm. To complete its look, the kitchen, dining room, and adjacent powder room have been modernized. A new kitchen design and expanded powder room increase the homeowner’s storage space and functionality. 

The kitchen shines with honey maple cabinetry and Cambria quartz countertops, along with a gas cooktop, built-in double oven, and mosaic tile backsplash, all set to the backdrop of under-cabinet lighting and marmoleum flooring. To integrate the original architecture into the kitchen and dining areas, arched doorways were built at either entrance and new wood windows installed. 

The adjacent powder room features cloud-white stained cabinetry, Cambria quartz countertops, and a glass tile backsplash, plus new plumbing fixtures, a ventilation fan, and marmoleum flooring. 
The home is now a complete package and an amazing space!

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.
