Before and After of House Remodel on MLK

Before and After of House Remodel on MLK

Wall to wall renovation (825 Martin Luther King Jr Wy Seattle, WA)

This is likely one of our most exciting remodels (thus far..). The home was built in 1907 and was mostly original, including lath and plaster walls, knob and tube wiring, old galvanized plumbing, and no off-street parking. We created 3 parking stalls for $5,000 in the rear of the home that include a 4’ foundation. The interior of the home was gutted removing all of the dated lath and plaster, electrical, and plumbing. We replaced nearly everything to modern standards including lifting the home from its foundation to re-frame some of the rotted structural framing. Additionally, there was a high ceiling attic that we were able to open up and finish out to a beautiful light filled loft that is accessed by a spiral staircase. Total cost: would you believe the owner only spent $140,000!

7-unit Townhouse Development Update (1540 NE 175th St, Shoreline)

I sold this property about 9-months ago and now wanted to hi-lite the builder’s progress. Since West Coast Builders purchased this project from us they have been hard at work on the vertical construction. This picture shows the current construction progress. Horizon View Homes planned and permitted this project and West Coast has been doing a great job with the construction. We’re excited to see the finished product.

New Construction (3347 NE 202nd Street, Lake Forest Park)

I’m happy to report that construction on this home is now wrapping up. Most of the interior is now finished and final painting of the trim is scheduled for this upcoming week. The home has turned out better than expected with a total livable area of 2,507 square feet. It includes 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a great room, and a bonus room in the basement. Our listing date is scheduled for the beginning of September just after Labor Day and will be in the mid-$800s. While inventory conditions have increased the past few months, new construction listings remain in strong demand!

5-unit Townhouse Development (5406 234th Street SW)

Another townhome project completed. This property is located blocks away from the Mountlake Terrace Park & Ride and upcoming Light Rail station. I did a little bit of trail blazing with this project as it is in a transition zone within the city. The development is the first of its kind within the transition zoning. At the end of the day, we ended up writing some of the rules for this somewhat new zoning.
