Admiral Dormer Addition & Remodel

A classic Seattle view home with a classic problem: small spaces upstairs and a main floor with both red oak and fir flooring. The bath had been remodeled recently enough to desperately need another remodel to make it match the aesthetics of the home--that corner tub just had to go. And so it did as part of a dormer and main floor addition and a whole house remodel and refresh of all the finishes.
