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.”

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!

Irons Brothers Construction: Ballard

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.

CRD Design Build

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.
