Leschi

Hara Construction excels in out-of-the-ordinary projects, such as this garage conversion, as well as home remodels, both successfully completed in this well-appointed home in Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood.

Handling all aspects of the remodel, Hara Construction’s creative design and careful work transformed a common garage into a first-class dance/exercise studio with all of the amenities and comforts of home. Now insulated and heated, it sports a cushioned wood floor in one section for dancing and a mat in the rest for exercising. Attending to all details, Hara Construction even installed the exercise equipment. Lockers and a customized storage system with mirrored doors that hide a full-size refrigerator allow for easy clean-up and an always tidy appearance. A sound system and 42-inch plasma TV with Internet connection make this garage remodel the epitome of style, comfort, and function.

Hara Construction’s innovative ideas also modernized the interior of this early 1900s Seattle house, effectively incorporating contemporary style with the traditional and reflecting the owner’s personality. Bright and bold colors of the professionally painted walls, doors, and trim immediately strike visitors with a powerful punch. Replacing a mishmash of flooring materials with oak, Hara Construction unified all areas of the first and second levels of the house. The new ebony stain of the floors, updated can lights, glass shelves and industrial towel bars in the formal powder room, and a stereo system throughout the house further contribute to this updated home’s pizzazz.

On the second floor, Hara Construction enhanced the closet in the master bedroom remodel, including creating built-in racks to hold 200 pairs of shoes. Additional improvements in this Leschi remodel, all expertly carried out by Hara Construction, include: updating the equipment in the basement’s media room; refinishing and resealing the master bathroom’s concrete countertop; replacing the guest bathroom’s damaged tiles and sliding glass doors for the tub; removing old, leaky windows and installing higher quality ones that match the existing style; and re-staining the decks. The crew even sanded and repainted the patio furniture.

Adhering to high standards of professionalism in working on Seattle homes, Hara Construction expertly provides white-glove handling of the finer details. In the dining room of this Leschi house, a chandelier with 300 crystals, each delicately hung by the workers, testifies to the owner’s style and Hara Construction’s exquisite care in all aspects of the remodeling job.
