“I hate this house! I bought it for the view. Let’s make this house as nice as its surroundings! PLEASE! HELP!”
After performing the design work for an extensive remodel, the price reached $160,000. His reaction to our bid was to laugh and then say:
”I might as well burn the house down!”
We laughed aloud together and then the seriousness of his off-the-cuff comment struck Rick:
“I’ll look into this!”
No kidding! The Chuckanut Fire Department was drooling for a test burn for which they could be the lead department, so our call came at the right time.
We had to remove the carpeting and roofing prior to the burn — so as to protect air quality issues — but it provided days and days of fire fighter training before they thoroughly let ‘er rip.
Our design provided a sizable amount of display space for his art collection. And, or course, much attention went into preserving the beautiful Chuckanut Bay view. The obvious result: an enormous amount of deck.
