Press: Seattle Times HomeWork Article

The Remodelers Council of the MBA has an ongoing relationship with the Seattle Times where RC members answer the questions sent in by Seattle Times readers or questions frequently heard by the remodeler him/herself from clients.  The weekly column that shows up in the Sunday issue is called HomeWork. Last week, Lakeville Homes’ article on

An Addition of a Different Sort

You may have noticed that the blog has been a little slow in delivering new blog content lately.  It’s not that our projects aren’t moving ahead or any shortage of available content, it’s that our blogger has been slightly sidetracked with a project of her own. Lakeville President (and blogger) welcomed her son Dexter into

Buzzing Around

We picked up a new company car a number of months ago.  And in classic Jamie fashion, it took a while to get it wrapped (finishing touches on the design/graphics, etc.)  But it’s done and I think it looks pretty fun. I’m thinking the Greenlake neighbors were thinking we were taking over when they saw

The Fiscal Cliff Deal and Your Home Improvement Project

The latest news is that Congress has passed legislation to avoid the “fiscal cliff” we have all heard so much about in December.  The specifics of the deal are something most of us won’t watch the details of too closely, but aside from the tax rates and program benefits included, one other item that impacts

What a year it has been!  We’ve been so lucky and honored to be recognized on so many front for the good work and commitment to our community that we’ve been doing all along.  Our 2013 is looking busier than we could have asked for or expected.

2012 Builder of the Year!

The Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties is the oldest and largest home builders association in the country.  Among their esteemed membership (that includes 1000 home building/remodeling companies), they recognized Lakeville Homes as their Builder of the Year.  That’s right, even with the guys who do hundreds of housing starts a year, work

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

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

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
