This house had fallen on hard times, but remodeling by Quirk created a craftsman gem. Skylights and clerestory windows light the house even during Seattle winters.
Maple floors, non-toxic finishes and beautiful wood throughout help provide a warm welcome. The stairs -- even to the basement -- were rebuilt for easy, safe climbing for all ages.
Carefully placed windows and outdoor spaces lend this city home a sense of complete privacy, even though neighbors are only feet away. A window seat in the great room has backs that flip up and storage beneath.
