Remodel 1970s Home

Before the remodel, this home had a number of great features but there were a few that adversely impacted its overall design and livability. The home’s main entry was inconveniently situated and the master bathroom was cramped and outdated. By enclosing two of the three bays in the garage, Dyna used the space of the third bay to create a new and grand two-story entry surrounded by windows. Just inside, stairs that had created visual obstacles were replaced with a custom staircase. Open treads and a glass railing reveal more light and a view of Lake Union. Upstairs, the square footage of the home increased by extending the master bathroom over the garage. The larger space now accommodates built in cabinets and dressers, an elevated soaking tub with a view and an open shower. Finishes include marble, granite and a tile floor with radiant heat. A curved wall divides the bathroom and continues outside where it is covered in stainless steel tiles. New siding and garage doors create an overall look that is sophisticated and cohesive.
