Revitalized Lakeside Modern Lake Sammamish

Full stripdown and additional windows bring new life to summer house [more]

This many times remodeled summer house was stripped inside and out so its two floors could be revitalized into a simple, modern, home playing off its current personality. Applying the budget across so many things allowed only for the simple but nonetheless creative change of roof and ceiling lines. This is a common trick we use with houses having low ceiling heights. It avoids the cost of removing the entire roof to bring in much needed light.

This house was stripped inside and out to make it one cohesive looking and functioning house. The stairwell walls were removed and a small transverse dormer in the living room was installed to capture the eastern views and light without adding large expense to the raise the entire roof. With the west side of the main floor bereft of windows we also added a pop-up dormer facing west to bring in reflected western light and views of the trees on the hillside above.

The fireplace face is ceramic tile made to look like steel at a fraction of the cost of steel. The clever little steel and glass bar area is a sweet focal point mimicking the tile and adding some art to the spaces.
