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

West Seattle BBQ – Professional Photos

As the fall/winter/spring showers of Seattle are fully upon us, I bring you a post to remind you that we do have a summer and that it will return. This fabulous barbeque shelter is perfect for entertaining.  The open shelves provide plenty of storage, the granite slab counters an easy and durable cleaning surface.  Lighting

What do you mean, CAPS?

I spent the greater part of last week getting Lakeville a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) designation.  This would more aptly be named a “stay in your home” certificate. Known as the baby boomer generation, over 10,000 people in the United States will turn 65 A DAY.  You read that right, 10,000 people a

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

Professional Photos – Redmond Master Bath

Some more Friday Fun.  This is another of our 2012 REX Award entries.  You’ve seen photos of this space before here.  However, I’m a true believer in professionals specializing in targeted areas.  This includes the art of photography.  Here are the photos that Cindy Apple took for us.        Some of the main characteristics this

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

NAHB Remodeler of the Month

2012 is shaping up to be a great year for Lakeville Homes as far as recognition goes. We were just notified that we’ve been recognized by the National Association of Home Builders (like, THE authority of home building) that Lakeville Homes was selected as their April 2012 Remodeler of the Month.  Yep, out of the

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
