The Olympia Master Builders graciously hosted the annual Remodel Excellence Awards (REX) this past week. There were many beautiful projects submitted and it’s always a delight to see the craftsmanship of all the fine builders in Olympia.
We were greatly pleased to win the award for the Best Whole House Remodel in the $150,000-500,000 category. The home we submitted was a charming and modest, albeit, funky waterfront home that was due for some serious attention. I wrote up a three part posting on it a few months back if you are interested in the full story.
The short story was that it badly needed a new roof; time had it’s way with the old one and the framing was severely compromised, also the kitchen and baths were seriously outdated as were all surfaces: floors, walls, ceilings. The home is located on a stunning east facing parcel that stares Mt. Rainier in the eye… it’s a fabulous location!
The home owners wanted to keep the project in perspective with the modest nature of the existing home. The result is a very fine example of how excellent design can bring together smart selections based in value. Once in place, all the individual pieces culminate in a space that is refined and sophisticated yet personable and retreat-like.
We all really enjoyed this project, and the client's were outstanding and very engaged in the process.
Below are a few ‘After’ images, for more pics, check out the full story.
By the way, this home will be in the Tour of Homes this summer, hopefully you’ll get a chance to come out and see it… it’s worth a visit!
