EDMONDS, WA ::
We've done a lot of remodeling work over the years on our own, but we simply didn't have the time to take on another major project. The master bedroom needed to be redone, and to make room for the twins
we needed to convert the small closet into a walk-in. To do the work, we were referred to Marybeth and Andy at New Home Solutions
It was great working with Marybeth and Andy - they were very friendly, open, professional, and neat throughout the entire process. The project took a little longer than we anticipated - mainly due to some code issues concerning the additional square footage being added to the house for the walk-in. As we deciphered the city's building policies, we found that we were already in violation of the impervious surface limits, and had to consider insanely expensive mitigations to appease the bureaucracy. The back-and-forth with the city went on for a few months, but we're glad we hired the pros to negotiate it. In the end, all of the construction was approved, and the mitigation only required the addition of a relatively inexpensive drainage trench to the front of the house connected to the gutters.
Although we had to sleep in our living room for five months, it was all worth it. We absolutely love our new bathroom and walk-in closet! Next, a nursery and one more bathroom!
