Featured in Seattle Homes and Lifestyles® and winner of a MAME Award for "Best Custom Home", this project is truly unique. With the use of reclaimed timbers, contemporary materials, and Japanese touches, the home displays a perfect blend of comfort and style. In order to achieve this, it was up to Eide Construction to make real what the Owner and Architect desired. Special features range from a lead coated copper roof to seemingly seamless continuations of vertical-grained trim tying in doors...

Having just sold their previous home and their new home in need of updating; the project's schedule was of utmost importance. The transformation included virtually every square foot of this 7300+ foot house-all new paint, flooring, railings, cabinet refinishing, countertops, fixtures, hardware, and many specialty items. The combination of a decisive owner, great design, and a motivated crew made this project and its demanding schedule a reality.
The location of this project required the use of over 60 pilings to make structurally sound the ground the house would be built on. With those in place, the massive structure took place with rooms to meets all family members' desires. Great care was taken to implement the finish work apparent in every room. Faux painting, a sixteen foot Italian door, custom railings, and full house automation to name a few, truly set this home apart.
Modern, inventive, innovative; extraordinary execution. Circulation Spine Design. Clear in its utilization of wood and stone as art form. Polished concrete, striking clear fir, rich slate, walls of glass: indoor outdoor moods. Surprise at the sleek corner reveal. Ebony accents. Main floor master suite; fireplace, mitered windows. Seattle skyscrapers and snowcapped mountains westward. Sensational family/recreation centre. Media with coiled mono-rail track lighting. Genius tech.
Restrictions on this house wouldn’t allow a tear down and rebuild, so it was carefully designed to be completely remodeled and enlarged in order to achieve the owner’s needs. This included lowering a portion of the basement floor and introducing structural steel to achieve a feeling of greater volume and take advantage of the scenic views. The home includes many amenities such as an indoor-outdoor pool, theater room, exercise room, and a fully integrated home automation system.
After completing an addition and several other remodels on their previous home, we were welcomed back to transform their next home. Beginning in the master suite and a couple bathrooms, we soon moved onward to the kitchen and family wing, including the laundry, powder, and mudroom. Special design touches throughout the new areas will keep guests continually finding new and unique features and materials.
