The view of Lake Washington is the family's favorite part about their home. They spend lots of time enjoying the outdoors and admiring the view, so they added a pool to this backyard. Having the pool so close to the lake makes the family feel as if Lake Washington really is right in their own backyard.
One of the best things about this kitchen is its view of the Puget Sound. To maximize this feature, a wrap-around window bank was installed to enhance the family's enjoyment of the beautiful scenery. Not only do the windows give the family a great view of the ocean from their kitchen, they also let in tons of natural light, which gives the space the feeling of having the ocean right at its doorstep.
Previously one story, this classic rambler was remodeled to add a second floor and update the exterior feel of the house. The design kept the pitch of the original roofline, but gave more emphasis to the height the house now has.
The family loves to look out their back door and see the lovely views of Lake Washington, so several gigantic windows were added to the back side of the house. Each level was then given a balcony so that the family could enjoy the views from different vantage points. The balconies each have glass railings so that nothing can get in the way of this family's love of the water.
This family loves the water and are enthusiastic amateur divers. They wanted an underwater theme in the main floor bathroom, so the countertop is made out of recycled glass and evokes the natural waves of the ocean, while the back splash, made of shell-patterned strip tiles-recall the world under the water's surface.
The owners of this home like to relax by their pool and wanted to emphasize the view to the Puget Sound. The designer selected an infinity-edge design to pull the eye toward the horizon and provide a constant sound of falling water.
Eric Gedney wanted to increase the light levels in the central circulation space. He achieved this by inserting a series of glass panels on the main staircase to reflect and funnel light down from the skylight above. The glass panel theme ties the Master Suite and Viewing Decks together.
Hand-hewn wood trusses add a rustic note to this relaxing coastal bedroom. French doors open to a deck with expansive views of the Puget Sound, while a neutral color scheme keeps the room feeling spacious and calm.
This family loves the water, so to give them a private place to enjoy it, the family now has a pool and hot tub in their back yard. The home has massive windows on every level so that, even when the family isn't outside catching the waves, they can see the beautiful Lake Washington and their own backyard splash zone from anywhere in the house.
It was important to this family that they have a space in their home to host their quilting lessons, so the kitchen was designed with that in mind. The over sized kitchen island made the perfect space for that, but they needed a durable material for the countertops. Enter Bubinga wood. Bubinga wood is an African hardwood that is not only beautiful, but is also extremely durable. This kitchen countertop is cut from a slab of Bubinga wood that is three inches thick, making it plenty durable to sustain the wear and tear of beginning quilters.
