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

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

Stylized Traditional – Interior Complete

Some extreme weather held up the landscaping, although we’re wrapping that up as we speak.  In the meantime the interiors have been completed and our home owner has had a chance to get settled.  We’ll be back for professional photos, but in the meantime here are some shots of the built interiors. Many thanks to

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

Kind Words

Sometimes praise comes from unlikely sources. When working on a project, obviously our priority is to provide our clients with product and services we’ve promised, and do so efficiently.  With the client at the forefront of our thoughts, we still need to navigate the sub-contractors, designers and jurisdiction.  Sometimes there are disagreements, but we always

Custom Home: Clyde Hill Nantucket – Trim Out

The homeowners are scheduling movers for our custom home in Clyde Hill.  While it will be early December before we have all of the sign-offs and the trucks back up to the garage with a family’s earthly belongings, things really are taking shape inside. Here’s a short photo tour (I can’t wait until we have

Custom Home: Clyde Hill Nantucket – Countertops and Finish Carpentry

While the house is currently all masked off for interior painting, here are some photos of the interiors.  The finish millwork is complete and the kitchen slabs (a honed black) went in so that the balance of the cabinets could be installed. Underneath that floor paper is a gorgeous wide plank, white oak floor.  The

Project Update: Clyde Hill Nantucket – Finish Trades

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this project, and our clients who have been out of town for 6 weeks are set to return.  We’re happy to report that things are just about exactly where we told them they would be at this point, several months back. The siding is complete, except for a

Kirkland Stylized Traditional: Roof Trusses

It’s been a while since I gave a project update.  However, inactivity on my blogging end doesn’t mean that the projects haven’t continued at a fairly quick pace. The house is really taking shape.  All the exterior walls and most of the interior walls are framed.  Roof trusses are on, and likely by the time

Clyde Hill Nantucket: Not All Is As It Appears

Kind of looks the same as this, doesn’t it.  And that was nearly 3 weeks ago. However, things are still moving along at a quick click, which this photo doesn’t indicate.  Actually, at this point of the project, the exterior is no longer the critical path.  While our sider meticulously whittles away at crafting the
