Lake Whatcom Remodel


Maybe you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but you can give an old house new life. When our client bought this home, it was worn out – tired from years of living in and loving in, dated in finishes and in its layout – but she saw potential, and so did we. And so did Greg Robinson Architect. Together, we teamed up to deliver a dream forever home that has allowed our client to escape the bustle of Seattle. Instead of fighting urban traffic, this homeowner now gets to spend her days sipping coffee in her slippers [allegedly] with a view of Lake Whatcom while she works remotely in her home office.

Not overly large in footprint, but with thought and intention around each corner, the new design of this home allows for a natural flow that feels open and inviting. The kitchen completely moved locations and now features a huge slab on an island made for hosting. The kitchen, dining area, and living area are all one large space with a vaulted ceiling and skylights. Opening up directly to a lakefront deck and dock, this is the home you hope to get invited to for summer celebrations. Or, come New Year’s Day, there’s a gorgeous fireplace inside to warm up next to if you feel inspired to take a polar bear plunge.

This home is the perfect example of seeing potential, betting on that potential, and living without regrets. We’re so honored we were able to be part of this unique remodel that has delivered the lifestyle our client desired and deserves.
