Spieker Custom Residence • Seabeck, WA

Project Type: Custom Contemporary Craftsman

Size: 3,900 s.f. plus 1,200 s.f. detached 3-car garage

Construction Type: Wood / Structural Steel

Design Features: This stunning waterfront parcel and custom designed home in Kitsap county was specifically programmed as the client’s “final house”. In fact, the client jokingly referred to this as his “mausoleum”! ADM incorporated many comforts related to the later stages in life, including radiant floor heating, an open floor plan for ease of circulation throughout on both floors, a well-planned location for the residential elevator, wider doors and hallways, easily accessible sinks and counters, and conscious lighting for general comforts and additional illumination for task lighting where required (all done in conjunction with a great interior designer, Michele Interiors of Poulsbo). The views of the Hood Canal are amazing from every room on the west façade of the house, and the structure exposes itself to you gradually as you enter the site and come through the forest down the private driveway. ADM and the general contractor, Pristine Homes LLC, worked together to meet the “replacement home” code, allowing us to take down the 1940’s cabin, but complete the new home in the same location related to the waterfront (distance back). These expansive water views wouldn’t have been possible on such a thin & deep lot configuration, without the creative code solutions vs. the current code required setbacks. A true WIN for the clients, due to a great team and collaborative approach!

Guise Residence • Seattle, WA

Project Type: Custom Home, New Construction

Size: 4,700 s.f. Construction Type: Wood Framing

Design Features: This house was designed for a client working on a small site in the Greenlake area, where the builder had found them the perfect lot, and we tore down an existing 1940’s home. The small lot footprint was a challenge, getting over 4,000 s.f. onto a lot that was only about that same size. The end result was an executive level home with exquisite finishes inside and out, that met the level of detail and taste that the client was expecting in their price point and that met the level of the neighborhood for home value. Special attention was giving to the open floor plan in the kitchen, living, dining areas, and the master suite was designed for a comfortable and quiet retreat from the rest of the home.

Dibble’s Custom Lake Cabin • Lake Stevens, WA

Project Type: Craftsman Shingled Cabin, New Construction

Size: 3,700 s.f., two story

Construction Type: Wood / Structural Steel

Design Features: This custom lakefront residence and vacation home on Lake Cavenaugh in Snohomish County was designed for a structural engineer and his business partner, a real estate developer. ADM teamed with both clients to assemble a design that was catered to the setting in the woods, with frontage on the water via the acre of back yard. Materials and finishes were selected to reflect high end taste, while keeping with the theme of “easy living” and “easy cleaning”, providing a family-friendly weekend retreat for the clients and their many guests. The upstairs loft was equipped with a pool table in the center room overlooking the dining room, and each loft end had log bunk beds to sleep over 20 guests at any one time. The kids’ “fire pole” allows a fun and easy drop down from the loft space when it’s time for water skiing or dinner.
