mood board monday: wallingford residence by Claire Grotz

Owners of the Wallingford home are looking to make their current residence more usable according to their daily needs. They are attracted to wallpaper and statement pieces in what would otherwise be a very simple, traditional room.  The rooms will be used as an informal private retreat with smart storage solutions to keep their space organized and functional. Happy Mood Board Monday!

queen anne craftsman remodel by Claire Grotz

Mood Board Monday features a Queen Anne Remodel. The homeowners are wanting modern comfort in their expanded home. We plan on adding character back into the house with a craftsman style. Generally, the home will have an informal look but with a baby grand piano and gas fireplace in the living room area, it will have a welcoming and formal touch where needed.

A full second story addition and a Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit (DADU) are being added the the Queen Anne residence.  Traditional, yet, dramatic stairs and windows will be used on the space with an eyebrow dormer roof design. The curved roof will add an aesthetically pleasing, soft detail.

november's featured project by Claire Grotz

A 1950's split level home in Leshi is getting a remodel and addition. The entire interior is being gutted, a story is being added, and we are re-working the entry sequence from the street.  When complete, the current top floor will be reworked so that it has two generous bedrooms as well as a master suite.  Public areas are pushed to the new top story with lots of windows allowing a view over Lake Washington, Mercer Island, and Mt. Rainier. With some of the best views of the area, the single-family remodel will take advantage of the amazing property benefits. Stay tuned to see the progress of the Leshi neighborhood home!
