This home perched over Puget Sound was originally built in the 1970s. Three floors standing on stilts provided views that grew only more spectacular with each flight of stairs. But the house was old and worn. There was dry rot at ground level.
That, however, was before. A whole-house remodel retained the best of what was and also introduced glamour, comfort and new conveniences provided by smart design. The fireplace flue, for instance, is electronic, allowing the face of it to remain unblemished by controls.
Quality counted everywhere and at all times: wall tiles are limestone and the fits-just-so bathtub is custom concrete (by VC Studio Inc.). The kitchen had been previously remodeled using Canyon Creek Cabinetry, but this time received new appliances and countertops. Canyon Creek worked with W.S. Feldt to modify the cabinetry to accommodate appliances.
Precision was key throughout. Warm woods team with brass, concrete and copper to give the homeowners a home that feels like a peaceful resort.
