We’ve recently begun construction on a new remodeling project in the Cedar Park neighborhood of Lake City. The house originally had walls separating the kitchen, dining room, and a sunken living room. We’ll be creating an open plan for the main floor and a more functional kitchen, and opening up the space to the views of Lake Washington. The new great room will comprise the dining, family, and living rooms, with the kitchen adjacent.

Demolition has already been completed and framing is underway.

Old windows removed and ready for the new windows.

The floor joists have been cut back to allow for the new steel beam which will allow for the large open space.
