West Side Second Story Addition

OPEN SATURDAY ONLY – A typical 1940s war box home,  has gotten just a little too cramped for this family.  Designed by Leo Smith Architect, this West Side Second Story will add a dining room off the kitchen on the backside of the house with a 2nd-floor master suite above. Currently IN PROGRESS, this is a great opportunity to see behind the walls and the sheetrock stage of the addition. This project features advanced insulation, healthy materials and infrared radiant heat. See how this family is gaining just enough square footage, with minimal scope creep, plus a stellar view of tree canopy and the Puget Sound! Read more here.

Love Your Family, Love Your Kitchen Remodel

OPEN SUNDAY ONLY – The kitchen of this 1925 Ballard home was well-used, worn out and and in need of some serious love and upgrades. Mighty House Construction and Entero Design to the rescue! The existing kitchen layout was semi-functional but not super-functional, so Entero recommended acquiring the back porch space into the kitchen. This allows for increased storage, better all around functionality, and a space for the family to gather together.  Read more about this project here.

Happy 10th Anniversary to Mighty House Construction!

Happy 10th Anniversary to Mighty House Construction!

We can’t believe a whole decade has passed! 
This picture was taken just about six months after the company started; the *wondertwins* were in preschool and are now in 7th grade! 
 
We are endlessly grateful to all our customers that allow us to shine and our trades partners that help us do so. As would be expected, the number of ebbs and flows the company has endured and enjoyed is extensive. Though the one constant force has been and continues to be our unyielding dedication to bringing solutions that result in happier, healthier, more sustainable homes. Doug, Laura, and the whole Mighty House team look forward to the next 10 years of creating small and large shifts that improve how families live, play, and grow in their home. Cheers!

Mighty House Anniversary Donation: LIHI’s Tiny House Program

Mighty House Anniversary Donation: LIHI’s Tiny House Program

Every year Mighty House makes an anniversary donation as one initiative towards supporting the greater community. This year we focused that donation to the Low Income Housing Institute of Seattle.

Over the past several years LIHI has developed nine tiny house villages in Seattle and more recently, are in Olympia. Together they will serve approximately 1000 people annually – including familites with children as well as individuals – with housing and services to help the community more out of homelessness.

LIHI is currently raising matching funds for their Tiny House Village Program through USA’s Today’s “A Community Thrives – CrowdRise Campaign”. If this campaign is successful, LIHI will become eligible for a grant between $25,000 and $100,000 to continue their incredibly impactful work addressing the homeless problem in our region.
