MBA – Remodeler Member of the Year

We spend a lot of time volunteering at the Master Builders Association.  We’ve found it is a good way to get involved with a number of philanthropic opportunities through their foundations.  It’s a great way to be involved in our industry.  And honestly, it’s good business to know and collaborate with other outstanding professionals in

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

Starting a Remodel on Radio

I was recently invited to join Ben Brashen on his daytime radio show, Brashenomics.  (You never know who you’ll meet at these networking events.)   The show covers a wide range of topics.  The one I participated in focused on home maintenance and real estate.

Seattle Permits Numbers Among Nation’s Highest

Buzzing Around

We have a new van, and it has new signage.  Looks nice, doesn’t she? Inside, she’s outfitted with all sorts of tools and supplies that help our team get your project completed in an efficient manner.  And obviously, she carries a pretty good load up top too.  You know, for all those hard-to-reach places. So

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. Slate tile on the bathroom floor and shower walls.

Press: Qualified Remodeler March 2012

We, at Lakeville Homes are keeping good company these days. Qualified Remodeler, a national industry publication, did an article this month on Women in Remodeling.  Of the entire nation, they interviewed 8 women in the industry.  And of those 8 women, 3 of them come from the Seattle area.  I am honored to be recognized

Membership

I was doing a little late summer cleaning and came across this (yes, my piling system leaves something to be desired). It’s our recognition for prolonged membership in the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce (issued May 2010–eek, serious piling system). When I attended the luncheon to receive it, the gentleman that I was seated next to
