View Ridge Remodel

"We have a great view of Lake Washington and Mount Rainier, but couldn’t see it from the kitchen. A huge fireplace trapped the kitchen from the view. Ken opened up everything, so we could enjoy the view of the water, and enjoy our fabulous rock...

West Seattle Remodel (Christi & Jeff)

"We wanted a new kitchen and our dining space was poorly planned, and having a great view of Puget Sound, the front of our house was very dated. Ken saw the possibilities to remedy all of this with one remodel and a tight budget. By...

Wallingford Remodel (Mark & Meggan)

“Our split-entry house was only 12 years old in Wallingford, but didn’t look right in the Craftsman neighborhood. The layout was bad, requiring us to walk through the master bedroom to get to the backyard. Ken could see remedies with a new full second story...

Snoqualmie Remodel

“Our Buchan home was great in the front, but the kitchen/family/dining areas just weren’t working for us. Ken designed a two-story full four-foot bump out addition, expanding our great room / kitchen while improving dining room access. Upstairs, we improved the master suite and added...

Magnolia Remodel

“Our setback from the street was restrictive, so Ken developed our complete house overhaul and second story addition with step-out upper decks with a view of the Olympics, Downtown, and the Cascades for the bedrooms. Street appeal and interior function was masterfully achieved with his...

Edmonds Remodel

“Ken had done a great job for me on a previous kitchen / family room remodel, so I challenged him with my new home in Edmonds. The house needed a better front entrance (second level main floor) and stair access, so Ken complemented the existing...

Snohomish New Construction

“The three acres we had to build on allowed for a daylight basement. Ken helped us design an open-concept rambler with an attached two-car garage/shop on a very tight budget. We wanted to simply hire a builder to do this, but their bids were 20...

Ballard New Construction

“We lived in San Francisco when we hired Ken to design our retirement home in Ballard. We also hired his consulting company to guide us through construction. We went traditional outside, but inside we wanted ‘European contemporary’ open spaces with lots of daylight. Ken got...

Capitol Hill New Construction

“We short platted a tiny lot on Capitol Hill and asked Ken to design us a two-unit condo. What a challenge, but he did it and we built it at builders’ cost through UBuildIt. Our equity equaled the amount we spent to build it.”...

Pasco New Construction

"Our desire was to build an energy-efficient home on a budget. With a lot of my input, Ken designed us an insulated concrete foam (ICF) house that provides a roomy, open-concept lifestyle. It is cool in the summer and warm in the winter at a...

Edmonds Kitchen

“Our neighbor referred us to Ken to design our major four-room/kitchen remodel. Seeing our Edmonds Puget Sound view, Ken envisioned rearranging the kitchen back away from the view end to the inside part of the four-room gut and remodel. By doing this, we maintained the...

Everett Kitchen (Rose)

“We had a small, old, dark knotty pine kitchen in a rambler with a great Puget Sound view in Everett. We needed to do handicap accessibility for bathrooms and bedrooms. Ken enlarged our kitchen, moved the laundry room upstairs, made all doors 36 inches wide,...
