Tiny House Remodel, Bathroom Addition, and Bathroom Remodel in Seattle’s Queen Anne Neighborhood

By Mandy | November 22, 2018
Carriage House Remodel Project in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle WA by J and M Remodel

Transformation From Shed to Tiny House

Our client had an existing outbuilding—essentially a shed with a living area—on his property, in the Upper Queen Anne area of Seattle. Rents in this area can fetch a premium, and our client wanted to transform this space in order to offer the carriage house as a short-term rental. A property like this one is sometimes referred to as an Accessory Dwelling Unit—#ADU—or a Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit—#DADU.  J & M Remodel worked with the Seattle based architectural design firm Atelier Drome for the project design and best use of the space. The addition of a kitchenette was a critical need. Despite the limited amount of available space, we were able to incorporate the necessary utilities necessary for a well appointed short-term rental property. The bathroom space was maximized by way of an enclosed glass shower. Existing wood paneling was salvaged from the interior demolition of the original structure, and was reused to incorporate a warm, rustic feel. We added a sleeping loft accessed via a modular ladder along with skylights and additional custom windows to match the existing home.

Basement Bathroom Addition

Our client’s second project was a finished basement that was to incorporate a kitchen, bath, and laundry area. However, due to budget restraints, we agreed to complete the bathroom addition in the first phase of the project. However, the J & M Remodel team was able to rough-in the electrical and plumbing for the kitchen and laundry rooms, so when the client’s budget permits, the remainder of the project will go smoothly, without any rework. As you can see from the photos below, the bathroom addition turned out beautifully. The use of a light gray and white color scheme really helped to brighten the basement area. The walk-in shower features a custom-built bench and recessed niches that offer a luxurious feel while adding to the practicality of the smaller space for the bathroom. The classic look of Carrara marble will stand the test of time and is period-correct with the home. The herringbone layout of the flooring offers a nice modern pop to the overall look of the space.

Bathroom Remodel

As the J & M Remodel team worked steadily around our client’s home to complete the Carriage House and basement bathroom projects, our client asked if we could tackle one more room. The main house guest bathroom included only a powder bath with a small vanity and toilet. The bathroom has direct access from the guest bedroom, and needed a shower as well. The J & M Remodel team found that there was quite a bit of wasted space that could be reused. The enabled the J & M Remodel team to add a stand up glass-enclosed shower without having to change the overall footprint of the bathroom. Classic white subway tiles were used for the bathroom wall, and complementary hexagon tiles were used for the shower pan. The J & M Remodel team replaced the existing vanity with a small white vanity with a quartz countertop that ties in well with the white shower.

Renton Bathroom and Deck Project for Animal Planet’s Animal Cribs

J & M Remodel created a spa-like bathroom, and a pet friendly pool deck, for a couple whose project was featured on the Animal Cribs show on cable TV’s Animal Planet channel. The couple and their chocolate Lab Turf were featured in the 2017 season. Turf goes to work with his owner Sergio at the Seattle Seahawks training facility in Renton, the Virginia Mason Athletic Center (VMAC). Turf’s job is to keep birds off of the field while Sergio attends to the condition of the Seahawks practice field.

After a hard day at work, Turf is smelly and dirty, and needs a bath. The existing bathroom was cramped and not well equipped for washing a large dog. In addition, the indoor and outdoor space in the home wasn’t very dog friendly, nor was the yard conducive to having neighbors over for backyard gatherings.

Enter the Animal Cribs crew. J & M remodel was contacted by Animal Cribs with the agreement of the homeowners to oversee the implementation of the design in order to address the requirements for the spa-like bathroom, laundry room relocation, and the outdoor deck aspects of the project. As a result, Turf now enjoys a larger shower where his owners can bathe him more easily, and the backyard now features a deck area for relaxing after work with neighbor friends and their dogs.

The full episode of Animal Cribs on Animal Planet that features J & M Remodel can be viewed here.

The first J & M employee can be seen at  around the 9:50 point of the episode. Construction of the new shower starts at the 13:50 point. J & M can also be seen at the 19:38 point, and the deck and pool materials arrive at 31:05. The final results are shown to the customers at the 33:09 point, with the Bathroom at 35:16, and the deck and back yard at 36:29.

As you’ll hear in the customer’s reactions during the reveal portion of the show, they are very happy with their new bathroom and deck. Sergio also left a review about this project on Houzz that you can read here.

Pioneer Square Condo Conversion

Projects by J & M Remodel, Seattle, WA

We worked on three separate units within this Pioneer Square building as the owners converted the building from office space to condominiums in response to the Seattle tunnel project. The units were completely renovated, including adding kitchens and bathrooms. Much of the original Pioneer Square architecture remains, with the addition of modern elements that complement the brick and exposed beams.

River Rock Fireplace in Sound View Home

Projects by J & M Remodel, Seattle, WA

This fireplace was transformed from dated white brick to gorgeous River Rock, adding a special feature to this northwest contemporary home with its sweeping views of the Puget Sound.

If the right product is not used, River Rock can end up looking very fake and unnaturally discolored. Eldorado Stone, a synthetic product, was used in this project. In our experience, Eldorado Stone provides the best combination of natural appearance along with ease of installation.

West Seattle Radius Deck

Projects by J & M Remodel, Seattle, WA

There are few better ways to add value to a home than with a large, gorgeous deck. Not only is your living space increased this way, but also the overall look a deck adds to your home’s exterior is second to none.

This deck project made good use of the client’s lot, and the curved deck surface and rail added a high-end, custom look to the home.

Grand Tile Fireplace in Covington

Projects by J & M Remodel, Seattle, WA

When J & M Remodel completed the project, this fireplace certainly became the focus of the formal living space in this home. The fireplace surround was tiled from floor to ceiling, taking advantage of the soaring ceilings in the home. A contrasting mantel with built-in lighting completed the look.
