A Moving Experience

Thinking about moving a building and updating its look? We have the experience and expertise to make it happen.

While partnered in a small development company, Sean was part of a team that purchased an old house on a double lot. The residence was originally built in the early 1900s and underwent a remodel in the 1950s.

The new remodel started with moving the house. A revised entry with a covered porch and eyebrow roof face the street front. The original cabinets were re-used and the residence received new electrical and plumbing throughout. Chuckanut sandstone from the existing basement was re-used for the fireplace, front porch columns, and planter beds.

A second story was added that included three bedrooms, a bathroom, an office, and a family room.

A neighboring home was already in its construction phase so this client had a chance to see what would be built next to them.

Features: 3 bedroom, 3 bath • Attached 2-car garage • Unique Witness Window • Square footage: 3,700 sq. ft.
