Nestled along the Puget Sound shoreline is our Vashon Island remodel, originally built in 1911 as a summer home. The owners’ main concerns were updating the kitchen and the bathrooms, and adding a mudroom–all while complementing and retaining the home’s original charm.
The master bedroom is reconfigured to allow for a new master bath. This arrangement makes use of the existing window configuration, bringing in natural light and retaining the original look of the home.
This older addition to the house was the previous location of the kitchen, and will now be the new mudroom.
When construction is finished, the owners will have a kitchen filled with natural light and a view out onto the lawn and garden.
In addition to the changes to the interior layout, the roof has been replaced and properly vented, areas damaged by insects and wet rot are being replaced and properly protected, and ivy (which can allow rodents and insects into to the home) was removed from the exterior.
On a clear day, the view cuts clear across Puget Sound to Mount Rainier.
