The Cedar Park Remodel is Progressing

Today we’re checking in on the Cedar Park project, a remodel that includes creating an open-plan great room on the main floor and taking advantage of the Lake Washington view. With the framing completed, the final form of the space is finally starting to be visible. Installation of the plumbing, electrical, and heating systems is wrapping up, with insulation and wall board coming in the near future.

The transom windows above the folding doors add substantial natural light to the living room.

Introducing the Cedar Park Kitchen & Great Room Remodel

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.

Madison Heights Bungalow: Pre-Drywall & Post-Drywall

Today we’re catching up on all the recent progress at the Madison Heights Bungalow project on the eastern side of Capitol Hill. After the house systems (electrical, plumbing, and HVAC) were roughed in, we photographed every wall and ceiling. This makes any future modifications or troubleshooting easier down the line: like taking pre-emptive X-rays!

Once the documentation was complete, we proceeded with installing the drywall. Meanwhile, the carpenters move to the exterior to work on the porches and siding.

The sunroom is already exhibiting great daylighting, as planned.

A new Deck and Bay Window are taking shape

At the top of a steep slope with views of lake Washington, this deck and bay will take full advantage.

Below the deck will be a series of rain barrels to collect the rain water.
