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

Passive/Active Solar Home Nears Completion on Whidbey Island

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 to the southwest

A small addition can make a big difference.

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.

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
