This garage remodel and addition was recently completed on Yarrow Point. The old detached garage was removed and an new addition was built to connect the existing house to the new garage. The new garage location was moved back from the street and the landscape and driveway were redesigned. Landscape Architect Jason Henry of The Berger Partnership “remodeled” the landscape to enhance the connection between the landscape and the architecture. Bob Talbott Construction was the general contractor.

The article is called “Planting Roots” and was written by Lisa Patterson with photo’s by Dane Gregory Meyer. The project was a remodel of a 50’s house in South Bellevue’s, Enatai area. Most of the house was “deconstructed” and rebuilt. Stu Johnson of G. Rodney Johnson Construction, was the General Contractor. The project is featured on our website:

The site for this home is a beautiful waterfront property near the north end of Evergreen Point, facing Husky Stadium. The house was designed a couple of years ago but was postponed due to the economy. The original design was for a full two story home with guest quarters above the garage and recreational and media rooms above the kitchen. After the permit drawings were submitted, the owners decided it was a good idea to “down size” a little. Some of the upper story rooms were eliminated and the roof lines were redesigned. Unfortunately about the time the permit was ready, the economy was still too slow, so the construction was put on hold a little longer.
The owners decided late last summer to go ahead and get the house under way. The original house was removed and the extensive site excavation has been completed. Steel pilings with concrete grade beam foundations have been poured. Check back soon for more construction photos.

The construction is complete and the last minute finishing details are being finished. The owners have started to move in to their remodel and the whole family is excited to get back to living in a building instead of the back yard “mobile” home.
The changes to the house have been considerable. The contractor has done a great job working with the client and the client has done a great job keeping communications open with the contractor.
The interiors can now be enjoyed since the removal of masking and drop cloths. The hardwood floors that were original to the house, have survived and the new areas blend well. The owners have added their personality to the interior detailing of the house. Tile, hardware and lighting choices blend well together.
The elevated, backyard deck is complete and awaiting patio furniture and a new bbq grill. The entry is finally done and the garage door has been installed.
The next step will be landscaping and planting. The owners will be working on this all spring and well into the summer. We look forward to adding more photos of the house being “lived in”.
