Ada’s Technical Books and Cafe The intention of the clients and owners Danielle and David Hulton; architect Jeff Pelletier of BOARD and VELLUM; and the Model Remodel crew was to preserve the character of this 1920s craftsman home and the Capitol Hill neighborhood, while creating a space that customers would want to pass the hours.
All About Wine in Kirkland These Kirkland homeowners love wine. When their 800-bottle-capacity wine fridge in the garage stopped cooling properly- coupled with the fact that their kitchen was long in need of an upgrade- the family decided it was time for a remodel. Model Remodel’s in-house designer and the clients collaborated to customize the new kitchen
Ballard Backyard Cottage Backyard cottages and ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units) have become a growing trend, offering homeowners additional options for an office, workshop, or more living space for that returning student, out-of-town guest or aging relative. This one-bedroom suite was created reusing the home’s existing garage.
Beacon Hill Classic Model Remodel worked within the existing dimensions of this classic Seattle kitchen. We preserved the contour of the original plaster arches to highlight the sense of space and feel in the eating nook. The kitchen updates allowed the entire main floor of the house to work as one refreshed, yet classic, living space.
Bellevue Back Addition To fully take advantage of their love for gardens, gardening and grilling, this Bellevue couple called in Model Remodel to build a 280-square-foot addition off the back of their home. CAST Architecture designed the addition, creating a space that generated cool, welcome breezes via the new room’s opposing French doors.
Bitter Lake Bungalow Master Suite The homeowners of this Bitter Lake bungalow created a lot more bang for their buck when they decided to transform their attic into a glowing master suite. Prior to the remodel, the attic was a bare, dated single space. It offered limited insulation, and the couple had to travel downstairs to use the bathroom.
Blue Ridge Billiards Basement The owners of this Blue Ridge home decided in 2008 they would like to turn their small basement with 6-foot ceilings into a more usable space– namely an area for entertaining and hosting guests. Model Remodel excavated the basement down 3 feet and rebuilt the foundation wall to support the new floor and ceiling height.
Capitol Hill Colonial This remodeling project demonstrates Model Remodel’s skill in achieving a completely renovated space that blends seamlessly with the existing home. The appointments throughout the remodeled bathrooms reference the heritage of this home and introduce current concepts of enhanced space and functionality.
Retro Capitol Hill Condo When this young professional moved from Chicago to Seattle, she bought her first condo in Capitol Hill. Capitol Hill’s proximity to the city’s entertainment culture was a good fit. However, the dated appearance of the condo wasn’t. Before moving in, she called on Model Remodel to give the unit an overhaul and incorporate her fun retro taste.
Contemporary Downtown Condo Drawn to its proximity to the opera house, art museum, and all else vibrant downtown Seattle has to offer- not to mention its stunning views of Seattle’s waterfront- this mature couple decided they would like to hang their hat in an urban condo, as their forever home. They chose SkB Architects and Model Remodel to convert the dated unit.
Eastlake Small Space Maximized The owners of this 488-square-foot condo comprise a fun Yakima couple and their Seattle-based daughter. The family views this small space as an investment property but also loves having it for the time being. Its Eastlake location in the heart of the city is perfect for their interests.
Eastside Harvest House What an amazing opportunity it was to lead the construction team for the Eastside Harvest House. Sitting on a Kirkland hillside overlooking Lake Washington, this multigenerational home is one of a kind. Model Remodel worked closely and collaboratively with the visionary architect, Velocipede, and a variety of talented partners and subs.
Fauntleroy Midcentury Makeover This complete renovation seamlessly integrates the home’s authentic midcentury exterior with the client’s classic, modern interior aesthetic. A bright, spacious kitchen opens up to a dining room full of windows and expansive views of Puget Sound and the Fauntleroy Ferry. The finishes incorporate the local Pacific Northwest surroundings.
Fremont Houseboat Working on a houseboat had some unique and frankly funny challenges, from the crew developing sea legs to the guys adjusting to make fixtures level in a rocking space. However, when it came to the construction aspects, the work was similar to any remodel job. The owner wanted a space that was more modern and conducive to his growing kids.
Grand Capitol Hill Remodel With the help of a local design firm and our build team, this Capitol Hill couple reimagined some of the major spaces of their home and made quick updates to modernize others. The result is a truly stunning modern home that retains its historical grandeur.
Adorable Green Lake ADU With her long-term renter moving out, this Green Lake homeowner decided it was time to remodel her accessory dwelling unit on her home’s second floor, to make it more stylish, functional and a stronger investment. The biggest challenge was creating a beautiful, functional, airy ADU kitchen, in a roughly 90-square-foot space with a sloped ceiling.
Greenwood Kitchen in Blue Rumor has it that one of the Woodland Park Zoo’s earliest animal keepers built and owned this house. Out houses in the neighborhood were used to shelter animals, and the homeowners were even told monkeys lived in their current guest house! Many years later, these 21st century homeowners were ready to make the kitchen more modern.
Laurelhurst Lovely Update With this home’s most “recent” remodel completed in the 70s, Model Remodel had plenty of potential to work with. One of the main priorities was a better entryway. Previously, one had to walk up several flights of stairs outside of the home to enter. With the help of Laura Kraft Architect, the team essentially brought the outside in, making a main-floor entryway.
Laurelhurst Whole House Remodel Model Remodel completed this whole-house remodel in Seattle’s Laurelhurst neighborhood the Spring of 2012. The small 1960s home was built with little attention to detail, design and durability. The new homeowners’ dreams combined with the architect’s vision turned this boring little box into a home that’s worthy of a double take.
Remarkable Laurelhurst Remodel Built in 1947, this house had two very important things going for it: its Laurelhurst location and the family’s 10-year history living there. But it had limitations, too, requiring the family to consider a major remodel. With the client’s goals articulated, architect Tim Hammer of CAST Architecture. not only captured but enhanced their vision.
Laurelhurst Vintage Classic The young family wanted their first home to reflect their values and family-focused lifestyle, celebrate the home’s original 1920s character, use efficient space planning to enhance functionality, and install sustainable finishes to improve livability. Model Remodel worked closely with the project’s outstanding architect, Rom Architecture Studio.
Madison Park Modern These artsy clients wanted a clean slate to hang their art, in addition to a place to put all their books. The basement was previously unfinished, with concrete floors. Recapturing previously unused space to create a sanctuary, Model Remodel maintained the client’s modern aesthetic demonstrated throughout the home.
Madrona Updated + Uptown These clients are wonderful chefs and love to entertain. When they decided to renovate their kitchen and main floor powder room, Model Remodel listened to their needs and worked with them to select the best finishes and most efficient, durable design. During this remodel, Model Remodel also updated the master bath.
Magnolia Second Story Stretch After the kids were grown and gone, it was finally time to stretch out and add that second story! Model Remodel worked closely with the clients to ensure their priorities were met during this major addition to their long-held home. Model Remodel dramatically upgraded the energy performance of this house.
Maple Leaf Makeover After a beautiful remodel of this home’s master bath, Model Remodel shifted gears and began an addition to the kitchen that transformed a cramped and dark space into a light-filled, captivating experience. Designed for entertainment and built to last a lifetime, this kitchen is now the heart of the home.
Montlake Light and Bright Basement This young couple was running out of space in their home after the birth of their son. In-house designer Morgan Ennis turned what was an unwelcoming raw space into a playroom for the son, a cozy spot for Mom and Dad to unwind at the end of the day, as well as a private guest suite for visiting friends and family.
Montlake Makes it More This young family wanted to open up the main floor of their home and create a larger front porch to enjoy their views. During the remodel, Model Remodel installed a more efficient furnace and improved the heated air circulation, which achieved a warm and inviting experience in the most-used rooms of the home.
Phinney Ridge Tudor Model Remodel worked with the owners of this classic Seattle Tudor to achieve a home with space and an open feel for their growing family. The result was an addition and a complete rework of the interior. The new home shines with a more open floor plan, updated appointments and efficient, new mechanical systems.
Phinney Ridge Refurbished This young couple had the foresight to know that some relatively minor changes to their attic would create a whole new look. With a little elbow grease from the clients and the help of Model Remodel, a dark, dull, unrefined space seamlessly changed to a vibrant, well-lit, charming master bedroom and future nursery.
Portage Bay Playroom and More Model Remodel completed this project, turning a boring basement into an action-packed playroom, in addition to the creation of a new master suite. This family’s under-utilized basement is now a whimsical playroom with climbing structures, basketball hoop, puffy mats, and a slide.
Redmond Revamp Between some nagging leaks in doors and windows and the wish for a new kitchen, this Redmond couple decided it was time for a revamp of their space. Coates Design thought up and drew plans that were as beautiful as they were functional, and the result is a total makeover. Perhaps the conversation piece of the house, though, is the new kitchen.
Sammamish Bath Goes Zen Between their corporate tech jobs and their two kids, this Sammamish couple is busy. However, with some help from Model Remodel’s in-house designer, they were able to seamlessly remodel their dated guest bathroom. The couple first described their vision to the designer and asked her to present two different bathroom plans.
Inviting Sunset Hill Den This Ballard couple tasked their cute niece and nephew with swinging a hammer into the wall, to kick off this fun remodel. With that, the demolition began, and Model Remodel got to work creating a basement where the couple could enjoy laidback Seahawks games with friends or classy cocktails with one another.
Towering Alki Home The homeowner fell in love with this West Seattle location, drawn to the expansive views of the Puget Sound, Alki Point and the Olympic Mountains. He purchased the property a few years ago and later brought in Model Remodel, who worked closely with Rene Architecture, to produce the outstanding home it became.
Wallingford Family Kitchen The young, professional couple in this turn-of-the-century craftsman home loves to cook and had a clear sense of their priorities when they decided to remodel their kitchen. As the couple had a baby on the way, they knew they would be spending a lot more time in the kitchen in the coming years.
Wedgwood Backyard Office When this Wedgwood homeowner decided she wanted to move her naturopathy business to her backyard in 2009, she transformed her existing, lilting garden shed into an cozy, inviting office space. Model Remodel’s first task was to demolish and recycle the existing structure and then construct the new Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU).
