SHED completed Montlake Remodel, an impressive architecture project. Here is the description we received: “Working with a limited budget and a tight construction schedule, the Montlake remodel re-imagined the interior space of a 1949 bungalow to meet the needs of a family of three. The owner’s project brief called for a unified Living/Kitchen/Dining room, a master bathroom, and the addition of a shower to the powder room. In addition, the clients wanted the floor plan opened up to the greatest extent possible. Several decisions were made to restrain the construction budget: 1) no changes would be made to the exterior building envelope; 2) no major changes would be made to existing plumbing locations and 3) the clients would act as the general contractor with the help of a detail oriented architecture school grad who was a skilled and an experienced carpenter.

“With these limitations in place, the design sought to integrate the public spaces of the house while simultaneously opening the public and private zones of the house to each other. To achieve the first, the non-bearing partition walls dividing kitchen, dining and living rooms were completely removed. The resulting space runs the length of the house–from front yard to rear yard—and is defined by furniture and the pools of light from the existing skylights. Budget restrictions prevented the extension of the interior space to the exterior yards, but future connection is planned! To achieve the second objective, the central bearing wall was “pulled apart” to open diagonal views between public and private zones, and then casework inserted in the framed voids to provide a measure of screening. Using just these two strategies the interior was transformed from a series of closed rooms to an open plan that integrated public/private space. From start to finish the project took 4.5 months.” Be sure to have a look at the last photos of the post for an idea of how this place looked before the renovation:

    As an interior designer I am seeing more and more of my clients acting as their own contractors in order to save money. They are also planning projects in stages instead of undertaking entire renovation projects in one fell swoop.

    The method in which design is being applied is greatly changing, and I am very excited to see where it goes.

    The bungalow remodel looks great. I especially like the wood floors.

    Hey,

    Your posts are great. But i would also be interested in budget involved for making such home (ex: ~ the final price for finishing such a home).And also i would like pictures in high resolution if it s possible because i’d like to print them.

    Have a great Sunday

    @Victor,
    We usually post links to the designer’s official web page. That is where you can contact them and ask for high quality photos as well as for permission to print them.

    @Alexis,

    Our mission is to get people so inspired that they become their own contractors :)
