Washington Park Remodel Completed

We just took some scouting photos to assess which angles we would like photos from for our portfolio. Here are a few of the candidates. Any favorites?

Washington Park Remodel is finishing up.

As the remodel nears completion all the final finishes are being installed. The owner will move in next weekend! I’ll try to get some photographs before they move in… we’ll see. In the interim, check out these progress pictures.

The porch made a handy place out of the weather for the contractor to set up shop.

Looking down on the kitchen from the back stair is an unusual perspective.

The laundry room is fairly small, but has all the necessities. Shelving above the counter and appliances will be installed this week.

The kids bathroom is shared and quite large, and the 'J' tub really suits the period of the house.

While the master bathroom is small it does have a separate shower and soaking tub.

Washington Park Addition & remodel is progressing

This home was originally ‘L’ shaped. We created a master suite by filling in the ‘L’ . This approach kept the internal structural changes to a minimum, added the necessary space for a master suite, and visually completed the form of the home. The second floor now has four bedrooms, three baths, and a laundry. On the main floor an earlier contemporary style addition was altered just enough to blend with the style of the main house while also updating the kitchen and improving the traffic flow of the house.

Another project in Old House Journal

We are pleased to announce that one of our finished remodeling projects will be appearing in the October issue of Old House Journal, as part of a feature on additions. Our project, a remodel and addition for a classic “Seattle Box”-style house in the Washington Park neighborhood, appears on pages 66 and 67 of the magazine, which will be out on newsstands(and online) later in the fall.

You can see more images of the completed project on our portfolio page or on Houzz, and track the progress from demolition to finishing touches on our blog.

Moving a big tree next week!

This will be exciting and we’ll do a follow-up post afterwards. Behind our office, we have a small garden with a lovely 25-foot Stewartia tree near the back property line. Stewart’s are known for their camellia like flowers, glossy leaves and distinctive bark.

A seven-story development will be starting soon on the adjacent property to the north, and unfortunately this means that the Stewartia tree would be destroyed by construction. But, why waste a healthy specimen tree when you can move it!

Lani contacted Seattle Parks and found they they had three locations where such a tree was wanted, and she arranged with Big Trees, Inc. to have our tree moved on the morning of February 28. It will be moved to the Washington Park Arboretum and replanted on the same day around 11:00-11:30 AM, right at the entrance to Azalea Way, across the driveway from the Graham Visitor Center. You can even watch the cool Big Tree equipment and tree-moving process there!

Below is a link to the company that will be moving the tree.
