This custom kitchen remodel on Federal Avenue in Seattle was a complete gut, down to studs within the core of the home. It required a custom surgical hands on working and service approach. The experienced craftsmanship by Westbrook Restorations made us a good fit for this custom project within a historic home. It's our niche. In cooperation with Board and Vellum Architects, and our subcontractors, working as a team with the owner we were able to execute the best in what custom craftsmanship has to offer.

Many websites only show before and after pictures. But I feel that the real story is what happens in-between. This remodel really consisted of not only a kitchen remodel, but a reconfiguration of the staircase, powder room, pantry, and basement gut remodel.
This remodel hinged on one thing. The installation of the main beam seen in the kitchen ceiling, without it this remodel wouldn't have been possible. We installed LVL beams laminated together to reach our engineerd load. We had the opportunity to film this process in cooperation with the Belief agency and Dunn Lumber company.

All, carpentry was performed by Westbrook from demolition, framing, window and door installation, and custom millwork. Many thanks to our friends at Board and Vellum, and also all the trades involved, my subcontractors who's vast experience made this custom piece, a one of a kind renovation within a historic home.
The video below, is a conversation I had with Robert at Board and Vellum about what a homeowner should expect in considering a remodel project.
