Return to Remodel Portfolio
To update and refresh this Craftsman-style family home--while maintaining the original look and feel within its neighborhood of Wallingford--we began by raising the house two feet from the ground. As a result, the lower floor no longer felt like a basement, but like an integrated part of the living space. The top floor now has cathedral ceilings throughout, which offers ample headroom while maintaining the Craftsman-style gable-end detailing and proportions. The kitchen was updated with a long marble-top island, a cabinet for appliances, and other storage solutions. A dining area in the kitchen opens directly to the deck, with views of Lake Union and the Cascade Mountains. The formerly cramped and disordered residence has become a comfortable, generous, and smoothly functioning home.
