Madrona Master Plan

Return to Remodel Portfolio

Since 2013, we've been working on a house in Madrona that was originally built in 1922. Over three separate phases, the house has been remodeled to adapt to a modern lifestyle while preserving the Craftsman character of the house. Each phase brings more space and ease for a busy and growing family.

The basement was remodeled in two easy phases. For the first we created a family room and rehabilitated an original, historic speakeasy. The new family room accommodates everyone with play space, media equipment, and a new gas fireplace that keeps it warm through the winter. The speakeasy is now both a conversation piece and a functional bar that works perfectly for parties.

In the second phase we renovated the laundry room and created a guest suite, including three-quarter bathroom. The laundry room includes cabinet storage, a farmhouse sink, and a window looking out to the back yard, making it a remarkably pleasant space to do laundry.

In the third phase we tackled the kitchen. Our primary objective was to design a kitchen to accommodate our clients' children—a space that will weather the toddler years and remain functional and inviting through their teenage years. A breakfast nook, top-quality stove, and lots of storage space for cooking gear and pantry supplies make the space user-friendly for both parents and children. A huge kitchen island includes additional storage, a second oven, and bar stools for socializing or doing homework.
