The scaffolding was recently removed from this extensive and well crafted remodel. Historically, Tudor style homes typically do not have balconies. This design adds a balcony in a style consistent with the existing home; it could be mistaken as original to the house. Thank you to Ken and Diamond Wall Finishes for their fine craftsmanship.
The balcony cantilevers out from the house for Lake Washington views.
The beautifully detailed brackets are decorative as the balcony is supported with a steel moment frame designed by Gary at Swenson Say Faget.
The quatrefoil guard rail was custom made by OB Williams right here in Seattle.
This added balcony provides expansive views to Lake Washington.
These are the latest photos from one of our projects located in the Denny Blaine neighborhood in Seattle. The clients wanted to add an L-shaped balcony to the second floor of their Tudor style home.
Their requirements were that there couldn’t be any columns to support the balcony from below, the Sun Room located on the main floor of the house couldn’t be disturbed, and they wanted access to the balcony from their Master Bedroom.
Working with structural engineer Gary MacKenzie at Swenson Say Faget, we designed a solution that used a steel frame that would support the new balcony and have minimal impact on the interior of the house. The steel beams are covered so that the final balcony looks appropriate to the original Tudor style house.

In addition to the balcony, we're also replacing the windows in the upstairs Master Bedroom, one of which becomes a pair of doors
Part of our services include observing the construction progress of the project.
These footings are being poured in segments to preserve the existing foundation.
We will post more on this project as it progresses.
