A client who J & M worked with several times referred the owners of a North Beacon Hill home built in 1924 to J & M Remodel. The homeowners contacted us to discuss a significant addition and renovation to their home. As their family grew over the years, the homeowners realized that they needed more space in their Seattle home. Deciding to stay in the house and remodeling instead of moving was an easy choice. Their home location is near downtown Seattle and is close to excellent parks and schools.
After accepting the project, we learned that J & M would be working with Atelier Drome, a Seattle-based architectural firm. Teaming with Atelier Drome again was pleasant news. J & M partnered with Atelier Drome on several challenging projects.
The Beacon Hill project’s major work item was adding a bump-out of the home’s complete back end that increased the house’s square footage. The bump-out includes an extensive remodel of the kitchen, a downstairs kitchenette, another bathroom, and a hobby area. A new, large deck off the bump-out completed the requirements for that part of the project.
The J & M crew overcame several challenges during the project. The biggest challenge was that the project required below-grade—below ground level—excavation. The excavation was necessary before framing the addition could begin.
While the bump-out addition is the centerpiece of the project, the design included more updates. J & M also remodeled a full bath and a master bath as part of this project. The remodel also includes new flooring, an inset tile to hardwood transition, staircase, desk nook, and a butler’s pantry.
