Ravenna Bathroom – Before and After

You know how pockets of Seattle have those insanely adorable, quintessentially Seattle bungalows?  Our clients live in one of those.  The doors are what manufacturers are trying to replicate with modern day, but affordable options.  The door hardware has to be found in reclamation shops.  And sometimes, the bathrooms just need to be updated again

2012 BIAW REX Award Winner

It really is award season around here. You’ve heard me say it a dozen times, and you’ll likely hear it every time we get acknowledgement from our peers, industry or clients–it takes a team.  An award-winning project starts with a client who has the vision and assembles an amazing team to see their project through

Best of 425 – WINNER!

Since the awards party isn’t until tonight, I thought I still had to keep this under wraps.  However a peek in my mailbox last night revealed that the issue is out! Thanks to you, our Lakeville circle (clients, trade partners, suppliers, subcontractors and friends), we are being recognized as the Best Remodeler AND Best Home

What do you mean, CAPS?

I spent the greater part of last week getting Lakeville a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) designation.  This would more aptly be named a “stay in your home” certificate. Known as the baby boomer generation, over 10,000 people in the United States will turn 65 A DAY.  You read that right, 10,000 people a

Facebook – Stay with Us

Some more Friday Fun.  This is another of our 2012 REX Award entries.  You’ve seen photos of this space before here.  However, I’m a true believer in professionals specializing in targeted areas.  This includes the art of photography.  Here are the photos that Cindy Apple took for us.        Some of the main characteristics this

Rustic Chic Remodel – Professional Photos

How’s this for a little Friday fun? We had these photos taken a couple of months back with the intent of submitting the project for the Remodeling Excellence (REX) Awards.  Now that the judging is complete (all those judges follow this blog, I’m sure!), I’m excited to share the images with you. We love how

Best of 425 Magazine

Our area and demographic is serviced by the relatively new publication, 425 Magazine.  Annually, they hold a “Best of” contest for their readers and area residents to chime in on the who, what and where in their communities.  When you are filling out your ballot (found here), please remember that Lakeville Homes fits for both

NAHB Remodeler of the Month

2012 is shaping up to be a great year for Lakeville Homes as far as recognition goes. We were just notified that we’ve been recognized by the National Association of Home Builders (like, THE authority of home building) that Lakeville Homes was selected as their April 2012 Remodeler of the Month.  Yep, out of the

Rustic Chic – Almost Complete Photo Update

Our rustic chic remodel is complete now, with the home owners living in and enjoying their beautiful new spaces.  And sometime soon I’ll have professional photos to update you with.  In the meantime, here are a few more shots of the master suite prior to completion.
