This 4000 sqft rambler had a low slope roof that aesthetically dated the house and looked in conflict with the beautifully wooded lot it occupies in Bellevue, WA. The goal was to give the house an exterior face lift, capture some interior volume with vaulted ceilings and enclose the carport into a 2 car garage. The work included: New windows, siding, exterior doors, roof, interior finishing. The owners moved into their basement while our crews went to work.
The crux of this project was removing the existing roof and re-framing the new roof while keeping the house habitable and protecting the interior finishes. Each
section of the roof was sectionally demolished and removed with the help of a crane. Each section was immediately re-framed, sheeted and dried in to protect the interior of the home.
The end result of this project is an updated house that looks in harmony with its beautiful surroundings. The light from the floor to ceiling windows in the living room brightens up the interior space while connecting that space with the outside.
