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.
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.
The siding has been removed and the house is ready for the addition to be framed.
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…)
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.
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.
The siding is transforming the appearance of this house lift and second-floor addition. The interior cabinets and finishes are also being installed–and are looking terrific.
The siding installation is proceeding. These are Hardie siding from the architectural line, so have nice deep shadows.
The lower-floor bathroom floor flows into the zero-threshold shower. The tile walls are flush with the wallboard.
From now until completion changes get more involved. But it also means the finishes will start being installed in November!
Once the batt insulation has been installed the heat will be turned on and the gypsum wall board will be installed
The medicine cabinets in the exterior wall have foam insulation behind them to maintain the thermal envelope.
The corner posts of the new stair guard rail are in place.
Whenever one of our projects is ‘ready for insulation’ we recommend a full set of photographs be taken of every wall, ceiling and floor. This record should be kept with the house as it will be useful for any future issues or just locating a stud! This project will be ready for insulation next week and the contractor will be making the photographic record.
This is the ‘wet wall’ of the new bathroom in the basement.
Here the lower wall is framed out for insulation at the below grade portion of the wall.
