Mercer Island Great Room Remodel

Sue and Don moved back to Mercer Island when one of their daughters, a California resident, purchased a charming rambler that Sue and Don could live in and would serve as a future investment property for her. While the home had good bones, it needed a whole house remodel to make it functional and attractive. Their first request was to remove the giant stone fireplace that overwhelmed the center of the house. Remodeling their kitchen and creating a vaulted ceiling were a close second and third on their list of must haves. Busy retirees, Sue requested a built-in desk area, consistent with the kitchen décor to be fit into the new design along with a living room space that contained built-in shelves and a more understated gas fireplace. Thus, a whole house remodel began.

Founder Len McAdams and Designer Cindy Larson worked with the couple to create a space that contained all of the elements they desired included a newly vaulted ceiling within the existing roof-line. The new kitchen, larger than the original, contains beautiful granite countertops, cherry cabinets, two skylights and a raised eating bar. This whole house remodel relocated the gas fireplace, and a new beautiful entertainment center now complement the main seating area, revamping the spacious great room. A new door and a fresh coat of paint completed the transformation.
