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

2012 BIAW REX Award Winner

It really is award season around here. You’ve heard me say it a dozen times, and you’ll likely hear it every time we get acknowledgement from our peers, industry or clients–it takes a team.  An award-winning project starts with a client who has the vision and assembles an amazing team to see their project through

Lakemont Deck – Getting Ready for Summer

One of our forward thinking clients is getting his deck ready for summer.  Just a resurfacing with a splinter-free composite material, (It’s just so much easier on the little one’s bare feet), replacing some rotted material (Safety first) and installing an upgraded perimeter rail system. Is your home ready for you to enjoy the summer

Remodel: Rustic Chic – Master Bedroom

This room is lovely.  And it’s going to be spectacular.  The Trestlewood beams are in place, adding real personality to the other wise white sheetrocked room.  The fasteners are practically invisible.  Through those sliding wood doors, there is a magnificent view of Tiger Mountain, as seen over the parcel’s 20 acres.  The fireplace is in

Remodel: Rustic Chic – Sheet Rock

With the current weather, I’ll be the first to admit these photos are a few days old.  Part of the charm of our Rustic Chic remodel is that the home feels as if it is remote, while only being 10 minutes from a very active suburban area.  They’ve been on the receiving end of over

Remodel: Rustic Chic – Framing

About one working week in, this project is starting to take shape. One of the challenges here is that the home owner wants wood floor throughout the bedroom wing (which is the area we are working on).  However the existing structure was originally built as a garage.  Subsequent owners had different ideas about how the

Remodel: Rustic Chic Project Kick-off

The wet climate of the Seattle winters can make substantial remodels a sensitive prospect for much of the year.  To our great fortune, the remodel we started this week is predominately interior work.  That paired with the slab on grade structure, few finish materials remaining and our Lakeville’s careful attention make this an ideal winter
