Sunrise VistaContemporary Living Room, Seattle

We began with a structurally sound 1950’s home. The owners sought to capture views of mountains and lake with a new second story, along with a complete rethinking of the plan.
Basement walls and three fireplaces were saved, along with the main floor deck. The new second story provides a master suite, and professional home office for him. A small office for her is on the main floor, near three children’s bedrooms. The oldest daughter is in college; her room also functions as a guest bedroom.
A second guest room, plus another bath, is in the lower level, along with a media/playroom and an exercise room. The original carport is down there, too, and just inside there is room for the family to remove shoes, hang up coats, and drop their stuff.
The focal point of the home is the flowing living/dining/family/kitchen/terrace area. The living room may be separated via a large rolling door. Pocketing, sliding glass doors open the family and dining area to the terrace, with the original outdoor fireplace/barbeque. When slid into adjacent wall pockets, the combined opening is 28 feet wide.

    Can you get plexwood here in the united states. Where do you get your plexwood done?

    Plexwood is a product. Yes, it can be purchased in the U.S. I would suggest contacting Plexwood directly to find local retailers.

    Pocketing doors are made by several manufacturers. These were built by Fleetwood, a California company.

    It depends on the finish of the door, in this case because the door panel was covered with cedar and steel it required quite a bit of labor and heavier duty hardware. We've done simpler large doors that were painted that were about about double the cost of a normal swing door. Because it's a custom element costs will vary by region and date. For very large doors we link to use Sing Honeycomb Panels due to their low cost and weight.

    These beams were blackened with a product called Insta-Blak which functions a bit like a stain, and lets the natural variations in color shine through.

From the dining table we see the L-shaped space that wholly opens to the patio through a nearly 30-foot-long sliding glass wall. Behind the wood wall on the right is the stair, meaning that if we take the living room we first saw into account, the whole living-eating space is a C-shaped plan that is wrapped around the stair.

While the disappearing wall might be out of our budget I really enjoy the way the consolidated the kitchen by dedicating the wall floor to ceiling with cabinetry. Really creates a strong orientation to the room away starting from the kitchen and moving away.
