A new roof for the deck

The previous roof was lower, had less slope, and accumulated pine needles which caused it to rot. We replaced it with a steeper pitched, lower profile roof system. It will get painted in warmer weather….

La Casa del Gato

Just in time for Halloween, a remodel that was completed last month for a family in West Seattle.

The clients wanted a place to sit outside and be connected with the neighborhood so we enlarged their existing front porch.img_4214

The original layout of the main floor of their house was cramped and poorly utilized. We opened the living room to the kitchen, added a fireplace flanked by bookcases and windows, and enlarged the kitchen and replaced the old dining room with a pantry and eating nook.  We also added windows to the west wall of the house to get more afternoon sun.

The old entry door opened into a small foyer that faced a landing for the main stairs so we relocated the front door and reconfigured the main stairs to create a more gracious entry. We even found room for a new coat closet

Heading for Newsstands!

We’re happy to report that a remodeling project we completed last year has been selected for inclusion in Fine Homebuilding‘s annual Kitchens & Baths issue! The owners of this Laurelhurst home wanted an open kitchen that was better integrated with the dining and living areas, and enjoyed the stunning westward views of the Olympic Mountains. We created a functional and family-friendly kitchen, with details like a custom light fixture, elegant penny tile, and sliding doors that conceal storage and office space.

The issue with the full story of the remodel will appear in the next few weeks. Until then, you can read about the home’s progress here: How to live through a kitchen remodel

Richmond Beach Revisited

Last week Howard had the chance to visit a home that we designed in 2002. This Richmond Beach house was completed in 2003, with classic detailing reminiscent of old Cape Cod homes. The original clients no longer own the house, but Howard met the new family, who has lived here for the past two years. It was a treat to see it again… it’s always a pleasure to get to revisit a former project and to know that the residents are happy living there.

This shingle style home is reminiscent of New England shingle style homes.

New Deck and Bay Window remodel completed

This project has recently been completed and we are looking forward to getting pictures on a sunny day! Fair weather will allow us to  complete the exterior painting. Should be a nice summer.

Our client is slowly occupying the finished remodel

With a lot of small changes and several big ones, this remodel has been a total transformation of this home.

The upgraded columns on the porch provide a more substantial presence for the home.

Not our usual type of publication…

This may be a Johnson Partnership first. We’re used to having our projects featured in magazine articles and books, but we recently noticed a project of ours being used in a local television commercial. You can see the project on our website here.

So many wonderful rooms

This home is now being re-occupied by the owners, and so many of the rooms are inviting and beautiful. Here are a few pictures of my favorites, of course there are others… they just aren’t quite finished yet!

Kitchen addition is Complete

The owner had a nice little party to thank all those involved in the process. Of course its not quite done – the refrigerator panel still needs to be installed.
