ProjectsHome Design with Kathy Zeim
Your Home Remodeling Specialist
Whether your home needs a more inviting entrance, guest room over the garage, integrated family room, finished basement, or backyard retreat with outdoor dining, I offer architectural experience in a wide range of home remodeling projects such as these:
2nd Story Addition for a Growing Family
A modest house expanded to welcome new family members. When an older home is built over the front setback and you want to preserve your back yard play space and apple trees, the only way to go is up! I am mindful of preserving the character traits you love about your older home.
Bothell Outdoor Living Space
The Bothell home remodel also included a variety of outdoor living spaces that add character to the house and blend indoors and outdoors for the homeowner: a covered porch, translucent roof over outdoor dining, and patio with fire stove.
Bothell Workshop & Guestroom
I have experience designing for traditional wood framing as well as new energy-efficient, cost-saving building technologies, such as advanced wood framing and Faswall ICFs, which were used to build the workshop with upstairs guest room in this Bothell home remodel created in collaboration with Living Shelter Design Architects.
[Opening up a Small Seattle Home]
A small space remodeled to create a big impact and take advantage of the home's greatest asset - beautiful landscaping. By helping you to visualize your ideas and understand the structure of your home, I can be a partner in facilitating your vision.
[Suburban Home Remodel]
A beautiful home remodel fits seamlessly with the architecture and aesthetics of your home and fits your budget. I can help you prioritize your design goals, evaluate options, and make the most of your remodeling dollars.
[Seattle Home Front]
I'll make it easy for you to visualize your home remodel through sketches or computer models, and provide a choice of solutions that achieve your goals. This Seattle homeowner wanted to rebuild the retaining walls, widen the driveway, enlarge the porch, and create a more inviting entrance to the street below.
[Methow Valley Passive Solar Home]
In addition to traditional home construction methods, I have experience designing for your choice of green home remodeling options, such as this prototype for a small, simple passive solar designed home created for a Method Valley developer.
