7th Ave Design/build
Originally built in 1941 in Olympia’s Eastside neighborhood as a 500 square foot working class house, this home was the perfect candidate for a design/build rehab and addition. The original structure was kept and the ceilings were vaulted to create a modern great room. A two story 1200 square foot addition was added on the back of the house which housed a second floor master suite, two bedrooms, and one bath below. Excellent detailing with a respect for the past was incorporated throughout to create this ‘Jewel’ of 7th Avenue.
7th Ave Design/Build
This home on Olympia’s Eastside had been the long term residence of a family of four. After the kids moved out and settled down, the clients decided to add on to and renovate their home to gain the space to host family gatherings. With that in mind, a great room addition with an enclosed garage below was added. Honoring the style and era of the home was important and is evidenced in the finished product flowing seamlessly with the existing home.
10th Ave Rehab
Originally built in 1901, this Eastside home was in need of a complete overhaul. The building was gutted, the subfloor and joists removed, the crawlspace excavated for depth, and the building was put back together using items salvaged from the original house. Borrowed lite transom windows were added, complete with the original glazing, the fir sheathing on the ceiling was exposed and painted, and the original sheathing from the walls was milled into trim for the renovated house. The original garage was salvaged and the divided lite windows from the house were re-used there.
Tumwater Hill Rehab
Located on Tumwater Hill, this 1921 house was rehabbed from the ground up. The home had good bones, and was gutted and updated with a better floorplan for modern living. An eye for detail pervades the renovated home with built ins, crown molding, refinished fir floors, and an added full bath downstairs.
Legion Way Duplex
Originally built in 1903 the Legion Way duplex had been neglected and was in need of a complete overhaul. Located in Olympia’s high density corridor, the renovated home adds to the overall character of the neighborhood. The house was lifted off its crumbling foundation with unitized hydraulic jacking equipment, and new poured concrete foundation was installed, and the home was lowered onto the new foundation. A front porch and rear decks were added to the home, and the floorplans were updated on the units. The finished product honors the era of the home and preserves the turn of the century character.
