Buzzing Around

We picked up a new company car a number of months ago.  And in classic Jamie fashion, it took a while to get it wrapped (finishing touches on the design/graphics, etc.)  But it’s done and I think it looks pretty fun. I’m thinking the Greenlake neighbors were thinking we were taking over when they saw

Greenlake Downsize – Framing, Part 1

In the past few weeks, we’ve been diligently working on the little house near Greenlake.  Since our last update, we’ve had the building drainage (footing drains) put it, backfilled and started framing.  The two-story portion of the house is completely framed here.  Yesterday the stairs were started and now we are working on framing the

Have you Scene It?

I’m a little sheepish about this recent recognition.  I mean, here we are a small (5.5 employee) residential construction company in Bellevue.  We do enough of a dollar value of projects to keep our staff and our subcontractors pretty busy, but we have no plans to run a monopoly on the eastside and for the

Redmond Addition – Buttoned Up and Finishing Up

What’s a couple of weeks in the life of a project?  Usually a whole lot when we’re working together. These photos were taken back on January 8th of our Redmond Residence Addition.  Last time you saw it, we were framed and sheathed, but the openings were still, well, open.  As of the 8th, we had

Greenlake Downsize – Breaking Ground

Last month we broke ground on a new custom home for some wonderful clients. This couple first learned of Lakeville Homes through a Seattle Times article they read.  Then, living on Mercer Island, they knew of our continued presence on “the Rock” as we have built more than a few spec homes there and are

Kirkland Spec – Starting Construction Soon

After several years focusing on remodeling and custom homes (working with other people’s money) Lakeville is putting a toe into the speculative building market again.  We’ve had this project on the boards for a while and expect the permit to be approved this month.  We will begin construction immediately. So if you or someone you

The Fiscal Cliff Deal and Your Home Improvement Project

The latest news is that Congress has passed legislation to avoid the “fiscal cliff” we have all heard so much about in December.  The specifics of the deal are something most of us won’t watch the details of too closely, but aside from the tax rates and program benefits included, one other item that impacts

Happy Holidays!

Season’s Greetings to our friends from Lakeville Homes! What a year it has been!  We’ve been so lucky and honored to be recognized on so many front for the good work and commitment to our community that we’ve been doing all along.  Our 2013 is looking busier than we could have asked for or expected.

Clyde Hill Nantucket – Client Testimonial

We are proud of every single one of our projects.  Occasionally, our clients are as excited about how things turned out as we are and willing to go on record to share their experience. You likely followed our Clyde Hill Nantucket project as it was being built.  A couple of months back we went back
