Burke Remodel is complete

The extensive Burke remodel and addition has finally been completed! By raising the house almost two feet, the lower floor no longer feels like a basement. The top floor has cathedral ceilings throughout, offering ample headroom while maintaining the classic Craftsman-style gable-end detailing and proportions. With this remodel, the once cramped and disordered residence has become a comfortable, generous, and smoothly functioning home.

Previous updates on this home’s progress can be found here and here.

Raising the house almost two feet and redesigning the entry porch give this home a new street presence.

The custom kitchen cabinets include a ‘magic corner’ and toe kick step stool from Hefele.

The convenient appliance pantry means more counter space on the island.

The breakfast nook opens directly to the deck, which has views of Lake Union and the Cascade Mountains.

This child’s bedroom has cathedral ceilings and lots of natural light. The dark color of the ceiling evokes a night sky.

The master bathroom has a classic feel with dark cabinets, marble counter and basketweave tile floor.

The clean lines of the large shower bring a modern touch to this classic bathroom.

Recently completed Freeland Residence

We recently visited one of our newly completed projects on Whidbey Island: the Freeland Residence. This home is designed to highlight sweeping landscape views and maximize natural light, while providing protection from the rain and harsher summer sun. The house features lots of living space both inside and out; large windows and expansive sliding doors blur the line between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Look here to check out our previous post on the Freeland Residence during its construction.

 

The welcoming front entry with an expansive, protecting shed roof.

At one end of the great room is the warm and classy kitchen. The immediately adjacent dining area features a custom fir bookmatched (in which the wood grain of the two halves mirror each other) dining table.

The dining area opens to the outdoor patio via a set of large sliding doors and faces Holmes Harbor.

Located at the other end of the great room, the living area has a concrete tiled gas fireplace with a built-in bench, expansive windows, and lots of natural light.

The master bathroom also enjoys the sweeping view.

The southwest-facing house is laid out in line with the coastal view, with the great room located at its center. The master suite, featuring a private deck and outdoor shower, is located at the southern end.

Located off the great room, a concrete patio with matching concrete bench provides plenty of room for entertaining.

The green siding, dark trim and natural wood elements help the house blend in well with the surrounding landscape. Solar panels on the garage roof are optimally oriented for power generation.

Afternoon sun streaming through the windows makes the interior a warm and inviting space to relax.

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.

Carleton Park remodel is nearing completion!

This is the point in a project where it goes from looking a mess to amazing in the course of a couple weeks. As a project nears completion, all the things that ‘finish’ a project are being installed.

Has anything changed?

Yes it has. The Stucco on the north side has now been removed and will progress at about one side per week. Following close on the heels of the removal is the construction of the additions and installation of the windows.

Nice comments from a client—

We recently heard from a client that they will be moving and selling their home that we designed for them. Here is what they said:

Hi Howard,

We had a blowout yard sale this weekend.  I think some shoppers just came to get a closer look at our house, and we got several compliments.  My favorite compliment, which I heard several times, was from people who thought our house was vintage, not a mere 10 years old.

Take care,
Amy”

A picture of their house is below, and you can see more on our website here.

The house faces west and has a peak view window to watch the shipping lanes of Puget Sound.
