This 4,500 square foot house faces eastward across Lake Washington from Kirkland toward the Seattle skyline. The clients have an appreciation for the Foursquare style found in many of the historic homes in the area, and designing a home that fit this vocabulary while also conforming to the zoning height limits was the primary challenge. The plan includes a music room, study, craft room, breakfast nook, and 5 bedrooms, all of which pinwheel off of a centrally located stair. Skylights in the center of the house flood the home with natural light from the ceiling through an opening in the second floor down to the main level.
This charming Craftsman classic style home has a large inviting front porch, original architectural details and woodwork throughout. The original two-story 1,963 sq foot home was built in 1912 with 4 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Our design build project added 700 sq feet to the home and 1,050 sq feet to the outdoor living space. This outdoor living space included a roof top deck and a 2 story lower deck all made of Ipe decking and traditional custom designed railings. In the formal dining room, our master craftsman restored and rebuilt the trim, wainscoting, beamed ceilings, and the built-in hutch. The quaint kitchen was brought back to life with new cabinetry made from douglas fir and also upgraded with a brand new bathroom and laundry room. Throughout the home we replaced the windows with energy effecient double pane windows and new hardwood floors that also provide radiant heating. It is evident that attention to detail was a primary focus during this project as our team worked diligently to maintain the traditional look and feel of the home
