Lever Homes Kitchen

"Give me a place to stand and I shall move the Earth with a lever." - Archimedes

This 5-Star Built-Green project is a three story, two-unit townhome sited on a vacant lot near the corner of 26th Ave S. and S. Judkins Street in Seattle. Due to the slender proportion of the lot, the units are arranged in a front-to-back configuration relative to the street. The street-facing, 1bedroom unit is 840sf and the east-facing, 3 bedroom unit is 1440sf.

Some key features are ductless mini-split heating and Air Conditioning, tankless hot water, LED Lighting throughout, strand woven bamboo, Formaldehyde free BIBS insulation, high efficiency windows and many non-VOC paints and finishes.

First Lamp acted as both designer and builder on this project.

This is actually the concrete foundation of the building. We insulated this wall on the outside to meet code and built a short wood wall for mounting the lower cabinets and running plumbing and electrical lines.

We bought these at a little mom and pop shop called IKEA. Great value!

We had these floors done by a commercial floor polishing company. It's a three-step process where they add an emulsifier and do several steps of grinding and polishing. We payed around $5/sf for this but it was a pretty small job. For larger jobs in our area, market rate is closer to $4/sf. You can add both water-based and petroleum based products to concrete and get most of the way there, but this finish is more durable and consistent. Hope this helps!
