Change Your Home, Not Your Address
Home additions and remodels can be a great way to increase living space and improve your quality of life! If your home is not meeting your current needs, we can help. Perhaps you would like a more open floor plan, a more efficient kitchen or a beautiful new master bedroom and bath. Maybe you need a mother-in-law suite, an apartment over the garage, or want to turn that dingy basement into a media room.
We get to know you well before we begin the remodeling process. A Project Developer is introduced and it is their job to listen carefully, learn your priorities and define the budget. New concepts, materials and options are presented.
Our staff of specialists can help you with design, plans, engineering, permitting and financing. Your Project Developer will write specifications detailing your project, present you with a firm bid price and provide you with a realistic schedule. Upon contract approval, a Master Carpenter will be chosen to team with the Project Developer. Together they will see your project through to happy completion.
Whole House Remodel – Edmonds
This single-level home was built in 1959. The home owner wanted to open up the main living and dining areas as well as re-purpose several of the rooms. Sunken living room and entryway were raised to the same level as the kitchen and dining area. Bearing wall and fireplace were removed to create more continuous space. One bedroom would became an office with double glass French doors that open on to the open living room and kitchen. A second bedroom became a master with a slider door opening onto a deck. The last bedroom become an expansive walk in closet and much of the new master bathroom.
New Entry and Chef’s Kitchen – Edmonds
Chermak Construction first remodeled this home in 1996 by renovating the kitchen and adding a second story. In this remodel an existing courtyard between the house and the garage was converted into more than 600 sq. ft. of new living space which included an elegant entryway as well as a new bedroom, laundry room and a custom wine room. The existing kitchen area was expanded on two sides and engineered scissor trusses were used to raise the ceiling by 15”. Finishes included the use of Supreme granite counter tops, cherry cabinets and custom finished red oak hardwood floors. The addition of an informal seating area makes this a favorite gathering area for family and friends.
