Kirkland Presale – SOLD

We completed and closed the Kirkland Presale back in October.  Because the home was sold by the time it was completed, and we didn’t have the opportunity the develop the kind of relationship we do with our custom home/remodel projects, we likely won’t get photographs of the house furnished.  Here are a few quick snapshots

Kirkland Presale – Ready for Roof

While I’m busy catching up, remember we recently broke ground on that presale home in Kirkland? Well, this photo was taken a week and a half back, just before we were ready for roof.  Now, the roof is on, windows are in, siding started, rough-in underway etc. etc. With buyers for this home, the interiors

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

Kirkland Presale – Breaking Ground

Spring…it’s a time of renewal and fresh starts.  Yesterday was a gorgeous Seattle Spring day that had me digging around for those sunglasses and volunteering to hang “Pardon Our Dust” hangers on the house’s neighbors. It also was a beautiful day to start a new project.  We’ve had this Kirkland home listed since mid-2012.  At

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

Kirkland Spec – Starting Construction Soon

After several years focusing on remodeling and custom homes (working with other people’s money) Lakeville is putting a toe into the speculative building market again.  We’ve had this project on the boards for a while and expect the permit to be approved this month.  We will begin construction immediately. So if you or someone you

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
