Madison Heights Bungalow Addition & Remodel Nears Completion

Completion is in sight for this addition and remodel on the eastern side of Capitol Hill. The owners will be moving boxes and furniture in anticipation of being granted occupancy in the next couple weeks. All the heavy floor protection shown in the pictures below has since been removed. This will likely be the last installment of progress photos until the clients are fully moved in and the house is furnished and occupied.

The sunroom always seems to have great light; and once the yard gets established it will have a lovely garden right outside the window.

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.

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!

Union City addition will compliment this architect-designed home

We are well underway on a new project: an addition to a split-level home near the Montlake Playfield, designed in 1938 by renowned Seattle architect William Bain of NBBJ. We’re adding a new fully-accessible master suite to the main floor of the house and using principles of universal design to ensure that the client will be able to remain in the house for years to come. The bathroom will include a curbless shower, shower seat, and grab bars. For now the bedroom will double as a study or guest room.

The addition is heading for completion as the systems are installed and final finishes are determined. Interior finishes will be designed by Jennifer Randall Associates, with whom we have previously worked on other projects.

Meeting at the end of the work day gives a chance to consider the options.

Madison Heights bungalow addition is ready for insulation

Today we’re checking in at the addition and remodel project in the Madison Heights area of Capitol Hill. The existing bungalow from 1925 is getting a new sunroom, cathedral ceilings, a full basement, detached garage, and renovations that make the main floor fully accessible.

The last time we saw this project, the framing and new roof had just been completed. The next step now is installing insulation and then the wallboard. As that work proceeds, the exterior hardscape will be installed.

Plumbing and electrical rough-in are nearing completion.
