We just heard that one of our past projects is going to be featured in Seattle Homes and Lifestyles next year! Â The project was a remodel of a classic victorian on Capitol Hill. The original house was well kept, but overgrown, dark with a tiny kitchen:
The walls in the dining room were forest green, but you couldn't even really tell, because of the heavy drapes, and the 15' hedge that was gradually consuming the site.
We took down the hedge, pulled the drapes, then started cutting into the house to open up the spaces, and connect the house to the outside world. Â We added an elegant back porch, perfect for grilling, using all the period details down to the last dentil. Â Even though we maintained the perimeter of the existing house, by using the space better, we were able to triple the kitchen's size, and put in built-ins to maximize every corner without altering the character of the house.
