Northwest Idea House 2018 Construction Update and Sneak Peek

We recently stopped by the construction site of our newest Northwest Idea House in the City of Lakewood, the Northwest Idea House 2018 “City of Choice” — and it is looking so good.

The home, designed by Coyote Design and being built by Zetterberg Custom Homes, will be completed and available for our readers to tour later this year. Tacoma designer, Stefanie Brooks of Stefanie Brooks Interior Design, is working with the homeowners to create a bright and classic modern farmhouse vibe that is trendy now (thanks to TV star and design guru Joanna Gaines), but is classic enough to be beautiful for many, many years to come.

Idea HouseSo far the structure is built, and the windows from Milgard Windows & Doors, our “product of choice” have been installed. The home has a lot of windows throughout, and it was important to pick windows that would stand the test of time, and a company that would back them. Plus, they really are a focal piece to the entire project both inside and out — so function and beauty were equally as important. We love the round windows in this project that bring a creative, whimsical bit of fun to the home.

Some of the walls have already been painted very soft shades of gray. And the cabinets from Huntwood Cabinets are starting to be installed and you can see where the open kitchen is coming together — with a giant island in the center for family time and entertaining. The home has a lot of custom storage and a large walk-in pantry that made us swoon. Some tile work on the floors has begun as well. There is a fireplace in the master bedroom, next to the private door that leads to the second floor terrace.

Idea House

Our 2018 Northwest Idea House will feature the products, technologies, craftsmanship, and design we will continue to reveal and share throughout the building process.

When the home is open for tours later this year, proceeds from the tours will benefit Rebuilding Together South Sound — a nonprofit that makes home modifications and repairs for low-income people and those with disabilities.
