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

West Seattle BBQ – Professional Photos

As the fall/winter/spring showers of Seattle are fully upon us, I bring you a post to remind you that we do have a summer and that it will return. This fabulous barbeque shelter is perfect for entertaining.  The open shelves provide plenty of storage, the granite slab counters an easy and durable cleaning surface.  Lighting

West Seattle BBQ Shelter – Before and After

Many of our projects are smaller in nature.  While they take less time and have smaller budgets, they don’t get any less attention from our staff.  Except maybe for me.  I don’t get out there to get the periodic progress photos and get them posted up here on our blog for you to see. Here

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!

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

Custom Home: Kirkland Stylized Traditional – Exterior Details

As the interior gets trimmed out, we’ve been taking advantage of the dry, spring-like weather.  The painters have been going at the exterior.  Although they are not yet complete, the in-progress paint job is making some of the exterior elements of the house “pop.” Entry “sunburst”. Metal railings will infill between the posts, creating a

Remodel: Rustic Chic – Sheet Rock

With the current weather, I’ll be the first to admit these photos are a few days old.  Part of the charm of our Rustic Chic remodel is that the home feels as if it is remote, while only being 10 minutes from a very active suburban area.  They’ve been on the receiving end of over

Custom Home: Kirkland Stylized Traditional – Finish Work Begins

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update of this project.  We’re now to the fun part, where the finishes start to pull together…the stuff that you’ll see in the end. Sheetrock is up, the walls are taped and textured.  The hardwood floors have been installed.  Because of acute allergies, this home is carpet-free.
