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.

Ready for insulation?

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.

Framing is nearly complete on this remodel

As the walls go up and the roof is on the client has been pleased to see the transformation of their home. With the cathedral ceilings and efficient layout, they have been getting compliments on the design, even before construction is complete.

The master bedroom will have windows wrapping the east end of the room.
