My husband and I are both former designers, and we discovered Thomas Schaer and Shed through friends who are designers--so we figured maybe we could work with him. We hired Thomas to create a "master plan" for a remodel of our quirky Seattle house. Thomas asked a lot of questions about how we live and what's important to us, and designed our spaces to be useful, beautifully simple, but also reflect our personalities. Thomas' ability to listen, then synthesize--and his attention to design details--are his two secret weapons. We got a ton of value working with Thomas and the team at Shed. They worked seamlessly with our contractor, whom they recommended. As a plus, all the people at Shed are fun to be around.

The remodel happened in two phases over three years. Phase one included adding a kitchenette to our guest apartment, adapting our garage to include a playroom, and completely remodeling the kitchen and the entryway. Thomas saw that our kitchen needed to be restructured to maximize the view from the dining room windows. His redesign made our laundry area much more user-friendly--and gave us the ability to hide it when we want to. The new plan opened up the place we spend most of our time to the light and beauty that surrounds the house outside.

Two years later, in phase two, we tackled the master bathroom, reducing unused space, adding a walk-in closet and allowing for more privacy. All of this created a lovely, quiet sanctuary off the master bedroom.

The interior of our home is now a beautiful mix of practical functionality and high design.
