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

Seattle Times – My Hot Home!

Out of respect for the current weather we’re experience, I thought I post this timely article just a tad after it’s publication.   If you’re like me, you live in an older home.  Mine is Lakeville remodeled (several times over) but that does nothing for the building envelope.  As a result, my 1978 home seems

2013 REX Award Winner

Wohoo! We are thrilled to be celebrating recognition for one of our projects last year.  The Remodelers Council of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties recognizes outstanding remodeling projects each year with the REX (Remodeling Excellence) Awards.  This year, I only entered a single project.  A single WINNING project! Our West Seattle

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

Greenlake Downsize – Framing, Part 1

In the past few weeks, we’ve been diligently working on the little house near Greenlake.  Since our last update, we’ve had the building drainage (footing drains) put it, backfilled and started framing.  The two-story portion of the house is completely framed here.  Yesterday the stairs were started and now we are working on framing the

Have you Scene It?

I’m a little sheepish about this recent recognition.  I mean, here we are a small (5.5 employee) residential construction company in Bellevue.  We do enough of a dollar value of projects to keep our staff and our subcontractors pretty busy, but we have no plans to run a monopoly on the eastside and for the

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
