The homeowners came to meet us via the Seattle home show. It was about two years after we first met that they decided to go ahead with the job they were planning. It turns out they wanted to do their research and find the best fit for them. Fortunately, it was DeMarre Construction.
Their home is a condo in Bellevue, homeowners association governed, and city inspections. There were many obstacles to overcome, like the fact they wanted to move to the kitchen to the other side of the house. This made it challenging as there were other tenants living on both sides, above, and below. We had to do all modifications within the walls of the condo and we had to walk very softly.
The project moved along very smoothly. It helped that the homeowners had very specific ideas of what they wanted from the tile pattern in the kitchen to the custom blown glass pendant lights over the peninsula. There were many fun parts like the butlers pantry that had live edge wood counters, to the Lacancche Range, and lots of lighting.
After moving the kitchen to the other side of the home, and also adding hardwoods throughout, the project went as according to plan. All plans, permits, engineering, materials, and labor included, cost $100,000.
