It started like so many remodeling projects do, with just a kitchen replacement. Then, like that piece of cake you keep evening out in the pan, it grew, morphing into a renovation of the entire house. The owners, new empty-nesters, wanted an open floor plan and effortless transitions between the outdoors and inside. Floor-to-ceiling windows accomplish that, with architect Regan McClellan making the most of sweeping views of 110 feet of waterfront looking west to Gooseberry Point. With a design incorporating glass, steel, natural wood, and stone elements—builder Jerry Richmond of Indigo Enterprises Northwest Inc. used all locally sourced materials and labor—it’s a grand nest that won’t stay empty for long.
