A stone's throw from Seattle, the city of Kirkland is an eclectic mix of new, densely populated condominiums in Downtown and fixer-upper midcentury modern houses in Finn Hill and Juanita. Previously home to the Seattle Seahawks and Costco, Kirkland is known for its scenic waterfront parks and beaches along Lake Washington.
Given a median home value of over $900,000 ( up 20% from last year!) hiring Kirkland remodelers tends to be more attractive and cost-effective than relocating.
Although the Building Services Department makes it easy and convenient to apply for permits and schedule inspections online, they also have rigorous permitting and code requirements that go above and beyond those in many other jurisdictions.
Further, renovating a home or a condo in an urban area like Kirkland means knowing how to get buy-in from homeowners associations (HOAs) before undertaking construction and being certain that all paperwork and plans are in order. Estate Homes can help you transform your existing house or condo into your perfectly designed home – on time, on budget, and up to code.
For more than 40 years, Estate Homes has been serving Washington State homeowners, and we've completed several complex design-build remodels in Kirkland.
While some Design Build firms may feel it's too remote, we love serving this city. We know how to manage the challenges specific to the area, from carefully navigating environmental regulations near Puget Sound, to strategically maximizing structural footprints so your home can live larger and offer greater functionality within the same square footage.
