Project Study

Yelm Traditional Makeover

This original custom build for a one owner home was due for a major update on the main floor and daylight basement levels.  The main floor kitchen was plain and inefficient.  The basement did not have a kitchen but had all the makings of a complete family and friend long term stay space.

The Results
The old master bath was opened up.  The new space includes a much roomier shower plus more storage.  Many clients are nixing their rarely used tubs in favor of large walk-in showers.
Bathroom Detail


  • Opened up the kitchen for expanded seating
  • Opened up the master bath
  • Created multi-use area in basement

Knotty Alder doors and trim throughout the main floor along with matching wood species in the kitchen cabinets help tie the whole floor together.  The island cabinets, counters, and backsplash bring a brighter feel to oppose and highlight the darker perimeter cabinets and hardware.

The master bath was crowded with a (too) small fiberglass shower and a rarely used large garden tub.  Walls were removed, storage was added, and a large shower that fit each her and his desires.

The basement was brightened up with new light-colored doors and trim, flooring, and paint.  A kitchen was added to create a self-contained level.
