Redmond Kitchen Renovation – Before and After

Yes, guilty as charged.  It’s not quite fair to have a project update when the project is already completed.  But the before and after images are so fun to look at! At a home near Redmond High School, the L family had a “totally 80’s kitchen” that was worse for the wear.  Even oak doesn’t

Redmond Addition – Under Way

Besides winning awards and gaining recognition, our Lakeville Homes crews have been busy on some new projects.  It’s just this blogger that has just fallen a bit behind. So what have we been doing?  Glad you asked!  Right now we are in the midst of a 2-story addition for a family in Redmond.  They are

Professional Remodeler – 40 Under 40

Wow!  Lakeville Homes’ President Jamie Hsu is at it again.  This time, the national trade magazine Professional Remodeler has included her as part of their 2012 40 Under 40 class. Besides showing up in the mailbox of many of the nation’s top remodeling companies, Professional Remodeler (PR) magazine put on a terrific awards event at

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! 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

I think I’m getting to that age where I’m not sure “change” is a good thing.  Of course technology bring forth change faster than ever before. Facebook is now a publicly traded company.  The first change that’s meant to our small business that stems from the change to their big business is that it’s not

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

Lakemont Deck – Getting Ready for Summer

One of our forward thinking clients is getting his deck ready for summer.  Just a resurfacing with a splinter-free composite material, (It’s just so much easier on the little one’s bare feet), replacing some rotted material (Safety first) and installing an upgraded perimeter rail system. Is your home ready for you to enjoy the summer
