Seattle Craftsman Remodel - master suite remodel Seattle

major remodel & addition


A total transformation of a Lake Washington waterfront home. The original home was pieced together, awkward and dated. We rebuilt part of the foundation, completely remodeled the lower and main levels, put in an elevator and added a new master suite above the left side of the home. The finishes are lovely, the view stellar and the lifestyle relaxing. Completed 2009.

Architect: Andy Salkin of Salkin Architecturehome design Seattle, master suite addition Seattle

Lake Washington Seattle Craftsman Remodel:  This whole house remodel by Seattle remodeler Ventana Construction included a second-story addition with a master suite, a remodel from the studs at the main and lower levels, installation of an elevator, and basement foundation renovation. Vaulting the ceiling in this room opens up all the possibilities of Lake Washington living.  Note the expansive view of the lake and Mercer Island through a wall of windows.  The TV is a high-tech center, with cutting-edge whole-house music, lighting and security controls The open floor plan places the dining room and kitchen side by side.  The views of Lake Washington area great, but so are the views of the kitchen Custom cherry cabinets from Baywood Cabinets provide a colorful counterpoint to the oak flooring.  A dedicated kitchen desk area keeps everyone in the family organized.  And Golden Oasis granite counters reflect the blue skies and blue waters of Lake Washington outside An expansive master suite with lake views and oversized doors to a balcony overlooking the waterfront Custom built-in cabinetry follows the lines of the ceiling and frames the double sliding doors.  Spot lighting illuminates this versatile and practical corner of the room A roomy double vanity and lots of mirrors make this master bathroom feel more like a spa A splash of luxury: a drop-in tub set on an expansive granite deck.  A view of sky and water beyond makes this a private and relaxing oasis This kids' room has its own clubhouse'near the ceiling.  The unusually high ceilings in this room begged for a hideaway, and a place to keep all those stuffed animals Pretty in pink: a dream for any young princess A seaside motif for the kids bathroom remodel.  Pottery Barn cabinets with marble countertops and lots of color make this a great bathroom to share Before: Ready for the remodel and Craftsman addition Seattle During: The renovated home begins to take shape in this Lake Washington remodel The finished project, a luxury remodel Seattle
