2nd Ave Craftsman

Our beautiful home wouldn’t be possible without Justin. Simply put, he made our inspiration board come to life! Justin was able to take our very general idea and helped us make it a reality. We were clients who really needed a lot of hand-holding, and Justin was great at helping us navigate the process of our first home remodel while also remaining within our budget. He helped us understand what was possible, but he also pushed us to think more creatively about our opportunities within our home. Justin’s great communication made us feel like we always knew what was going on while also setting realistic expectations for us. We love our home and we know we have Justin to thank for that.

Justin made the whole process enjoyable and not overwhelming.  From the initial meetings discussing preferred style (modern, classical, colonial) through giving us a handful of options for each decision while staying within budget.  Having five options to choose from (tile, paint colors, trim types, appliances) instead of 5000 made a huge difference to us.
This 1920’s brick colonial had over thirty years of deferred maintenance when the current owners acquired the property.  An extensive remodel saw the structure taken down to the studs and seismically retrofitted.  During construction the house was insulated and the electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems were replaced.
The home, with views of Lake Washington, was remodeled in a traditional style befitting its architectural language and the owner’s distinctive taste.  A historic color scheme was selected and many of the original trim and casework details were recreated in our effort to restore the house to its original grandeur.

Retreat

It was a great experience working with Justin on the Retreat. At the start of the project we had long conversations about my work and my ideas and by the end of it I felt that he had turned all of that conceptual stuff into brick and mortar before my very eyes! I felt that the Retreat with its steam room, sauna, salt water pool, outside shower, aromatic garden was a stunning reflection of those initial discussions. Justin considered every detail from sourcing material to crafting artists, bringing it all together into a beautiful and functional cohesive design. I cannot recommend Justin and Leisure highly enough.

Justin and Melanie clicked from the start. The two of them were in joy as they defined and redefined every aspect of the house—the floor plan, every finish, colors, lighting design, and fixtures, appliances and hardware—down to the last detail

If you even think about working with another architect other than Leisure, you’re crazy. Justin and his team should have a term like “the architect experience” that they should patent. They start by sitting down with you and getting to know you and what you’re about. They’ll literally drive around in a car with you as you point to other houses and say things like “that’s really cool trim” or “what a terrible color on that house”. They somehow are able to capture everything you say and even more – listen to what you actually want – but didn’t know how to say – and provide concept diagrams to get going in the right direction. They make suggestions about the type of neighborhood you’re in, the future houses that might suddenly appear next to you and basic things you’d never think of like what window the sun will be shining in when you wake up. All of this leads to drawings that start to get you excited…. And then they start rendering drawings with colors and interior trim designs and cabinets on the walls and the house literally starts materializing in front of you. The attention they pay to the details is what makes Leisure Leisure. Right down to the exact measurements for the light switches on the walls and the height of the towel bar in the bathroom. Every detail is thought through meticulously and conveyed through the drawings. Our builder’s comment was “These are the most thorough plans I’ve ever seen!”. I can honestly say that the house that we moved into was exactly what we were hoping for and saw in the renderings… and then some. Justin’s team was with us every step of the way and even after we moved in, making sure that everything was exactly as we hoped. Use. Leisure. Now. – Adam
