House in Bellevue

Before & After:

A plain and well-worn, gable-roofed 1960’s home, has been transformed into a series of horizontal and vertical planes and volumes.

Located on a heavily treed suburban hillside with Lake Washington views, the home was expanded to 3000 square feet, to accommodate a family of four including work-at-home office and workshop areas. An existing carport was filled in to create expanded living, dining and kitchen spaces, and a second story added for a master bedroom suite. The main living area was also expanded vertically, to capture light through clerestory windows. A new carport was added.

All of the original foundation and most of the original framing was retained. Many original finish materials (wide plank cedar siding, oak flooring, gypsum wallboard) were integrated with new materials (fiber-cement siding, aluminum windows). Though not experienced builders, the owners crafted much of the finish work on their own, in the interests of construction economy.

Jomax and clorox

Have cedar sided house that gets black with mildew here in SC. Rather than pressure washing which can pit and raise grain on the wood, every few years, we mix according to directions on Jomax, a surfacent, detergent with Clorox and spray it on the wood with a garden sprayer from the bottom to the top to avoid streaking. Leaving it on 15-30 minutes, results in visibly bleaching the mold from black to brown to clean. We then rinse with the garden hose. Wonders never cease. Try it on a corner somewhere. You will be amazed and be convince it is the way to go.
