Over the years, Ventana Construction has worked with hundreds of residential remodeling clients. Our main website shows some of our newest and most unique remodeling work, but there are many more bath remodels, home additions and kitchen remodels that may provide you with inspiration. Here are some of the older projects that we proudly worked with homeowners on over the years.
major remodelThe house: 100 years old, a former boarding house in Greenwood. The owners: determined to mark its centennial by updating the look without losing sight of the past. Classic white custom cabinetry contrasts with eye-popping glass art tile and hand-blown light fixtures. An inviting furniture-style island cabinet draws in guests and an Ipea deck beckons outside. Doors, windows and walls moved - the result is colorful, true to form, and seamless. Completed 2007.
second-story 50s rambler addition & bumpoutThis Seward Park '50s rambler was itching to break out and up into a Northwest contemporary. A 2-story atrium bumpout encompassing the dining room and upper hall provides Lake Washington views. Steel railings, travertine tile and natural fir trim and doors bring this home into the new century and into the light. Completed 2007.
second-story addition & bumpoutThis Capitol Hill home on a postage stamp lot was literally rebuilt from the inside out. We underpinned the foundation and dug down 3 feet to create a full-height basement, then rebuilt the main floor system and added a full second story master suite. The result is a charming home with Cascade views, all ready for a talented owner who is completing the finishes himself. Completed 2007.
master suite & bathThe unusual shape of this Seward Park master suite area posed a design challenge in creating a more functional space. The architect reconfigured closets, stairs and walls to make the hard ceiling angles flow. The master bath, with custom cabinets and high-quality tile, features a soaking tub with a tiled shelf for towels. Lovely cherry built-ins were rubbed with oil to show off their natural beauty.
major remodel & additionThis West Seattle house was a fixer when it was bought in the '40s. Replacing the trim and siding, and installing new wood clad windows maintained the look of the original while improving and insulating the house. A dry-rotted sun porch in the back was demolished and replaced with a larger sunroom and deck, creating some useful outdoor space. Finally, a full kitchen and bath remodel brought the home to functional grace.
second-story additionThe project started with a very ordinary brick '50s rambler on an incredible view lot in West Seattle. We started by building a new 2-car garage. After removing the brick, we built out and then up, creating a 2-story atrium and a full second level, then finished the exterior with craftsman-style trim. The cedar soffits under the front door were reclaimed from the original soffits in the rambler, creating a new look with vintage material.
baths & windowsThis Queen Anne home needed a few finishing touches to make it perfect for a family of 5. A complete overhaul of the baths stayed true to the look of the home, and added glass block for light. We also upgraded many of the windows and added wainscoting to the main stairwell in this lovely home. Completed 2007.
bathroomTeeny tiny is the only way to describe this bathroom in Normandy Park. But the owner had a vision: To maximize the space and use beautiful materials and a new bay window to make it light, bright and functional. Porcelain tile, Grohe fixtures and lots of mirrors make it spectacular. Completed 2006.
galley kitchenBeauty on a budget. Ikea cabinets saved enough to allow a Squak Mountain countertop, recycled glass tile and lovely slate floors. The kitchen's still a galley, but what a facelift! Steel accents and appliances make it modern. Completed 2006.
kitchen remodelA dated West Seattle kitchen benefits tremendously from new cabinets, paint and lighting. The owners wanted a complete kitchen overhaul, and they got it!
basement remodelWe've built out our share of basements and this is one of our favorites. A West Seattle spec home had a completely unfinished basement/garage area. We walled off the space, installed new windows to match the configuration of ones upstairs, built in a desk and finished out the walls with bead board wainscoting. It was supposed to be a playroom for the kids, but we think Dad may get a little use out of it too. Completed 2009.
balcony remodelA little peekaboo balcony is all the West Seattle owners of this new construction home got from the original builder to take in their fabulous city view. They made plans for an expanded deck over lower-level living space, and the results are spectacular. Completed 2008.
basement & garageThe goal: to upgrade heating for this beautiful U-District home, finish out the basement into a large mother-in-law unit, by adding a basement bathroom and kitchen. Also to build a new 2-car garage in the back yard, and create a laundry room upstairs. The project involved foundation and concrete work, along with new steel beams and framing in the basement area. Final finishes included Ikea cabinets with solid surface countertops and a floating wood floor. Completed 2008.
addition & basementThe owners of this 100-year-old Central Seattle home wanted to add some significant square footage to the house. By removing a small addition on the back, and using a 450sf footprint, we dug down 8 feet to create a full-height basement, then built a full first and second story, and a full height attic. The result is a whole house remodel with a potential 1800sf of space, a new kitchen and bedroom, a full master suite and lots of dry basement storage.
deck build & sidingThe owner of this Fremont home wanted to replace the existing siding and create an inspired and beautiful deck area. The architect called for the use of cedar and Ipea to create the trellises and railing systems, using galvanized spacers between the Ipea rails. The result is a light and bright deck area with rich wood texture. Completed 2005.
basement remodel & drivewayThe owners of this craftsman-style house wanted to create a full-height basement. To do so, we dug out the existing floor by hand, formed up new concrete foundation walls per engineering plans to reinforce the foundation, and poured a new slab. We also graded and poured a new driveway for the house.
