The window trim has been installed along with the water barrier, siding is next. Inside the rough-in is nearly complete. Insulation should begin in March.
The kitchen sink will have plenty of natural light with these windows.
The bay will eventually be all trim, making it a focal point on the rear of the house.
The fluid applied vapor permeable water barrier has been applied. Siding and flashing is next. The deck and front porch columns will also be installed soon. Now that the windows are in the insulation can be installed and then its on to gypsum wall board on the interior. All rough plumbing and electrical has been installed.
The addition is ready for siding and the deck.
The skylight will bring lots of light into the kitchen.
Framing and roofing are complete and the windows are due next week. We just completed the electrical walkthrough with the client verifying fixture, outlet and switch locations and functions. A key point in any remodel.
The bay window will be a great place to cozy up with a good book!
The kitchen skylight well is framed. the flare will allow the light to spread throughout the kitchen.
The new bay window and covered section of the deck are now visible.
The front stoop has been completely replaced.
The foundations are complete for this addition and the affected portions of the interior have been completely opened up. Next they will be framing — inside and out.

Temporary lighting is up. this is the location of a bump-out for a window seat and covered deck beyond.
The owner is living in the home during the remodel! This is the temporary kitchen. (looks like a shop…)
With the weather report warning of incoming rainstorms, we took advantage of the beautiful fall day to visit one of our designs under construction on Whidbey Island. It is getting close to completion, and the owners should be moving in some time in the next month.
All the main rooms face the southwest.
The main entry of the house is on the northeast, well protected from prevailing winds.
The house is oriented to the west-southwest for passive solar, and the garage roof angles due south for the photovoltaics.
The master bathroom has a large tub and exterior access to a private deck and outdoor shower.
The kitchen has maple cabinets and is open to the main room.

The patio enjoys a large overhang, built-in poured concrete bench, and stunning views of the Olympic Mountains.
This small addition in the green lake neighborhood has just begun and will not be visible from the street. It is not about street appeal. This small addition provides space for a master suite and guest bedroom. But, beyond adding living space, this addition also adds enough optimally oriented roof space for 27 photovoltaic solar panels. They will generate enough power to fully offset the power consumed in the house and charge their electric vehicle. Seattle is going green, one remodel at a time.
The guest bedroom will have its own exterior door for private access.
The foundation walls are complete and slab reinforcing placed. nearly ready for the next concrete pour.
This new home is progressing. With the exterior work finishing up, the interior finishes are in full swing.
The large overhangs protect the home from heat gain on our long summer days.
The gas fireplace works even when the power goes out and is capable of heating most of the house.
The front door is recessed for protection and accented with a shed roof.
The Mahogany ceiling and wall create a warm welcoming feeling.
…and then the concrete work will be completed and interior framing can begin!
The lid for the below-grade room. Waterproofing and backfill are next. This will be a nice patio.
The temporary supports for pouring the concrete roof will be removed and then the floor slab will be poured.
The hydronic floor heating has been placed, all ready for the first of the floor slabs to be poured.
One of our clients is busy building this summer and looking forward to moving in this fall.
The extended overhang facing southwest limits summer sun heat gain while allowing the winter sun deep into the house.
The master suite has a private covered patio facing the view and the sunset.
The parking pad in front of the garage has just been poured.
But the owners are moving in now! Look for this project to show up in our portfolio next spring (after the client is settled and the landscape has been installed).
We retained the existing mantle and installed a new tile surround and hearth and gas insert.
There is a generous laundry room right off the mudroom.
The Lower floor bath has a zero threshold shower and the wall tile is flush with the adjacent wall.
The dark body color and white trim really set off the clinker style thin brick veneer on the chimney.
