We worked with the architect and owners to tear down the old and build a “new” custom 3,300 square foot home reflecting our clients’ dreams.
The living & dining rooms open up to a large patio area featuring a decorative concrete overlay, cable railing, plenty of seating space, outdoor heaters, bbq area, and a fire pit ready for entertaining. Two 12 foot wide LaCantina doors open up to the space to capture the impressive water view from every angle.
The home’s tall ceilings really makes the home feel larger than it is but the open entry area gives a warm, cozy, welcoming feeling. A custom wood and metal floating staircase leads upstairs to three of the four bedrooms. Each bedroom features its own full bathroom, but the most impressive is the master bath with heated floors, a large steam shower, and a soaking tub to sit and enjoy the view.
We interviewed several high-end local contractors. Fatboy was responsive and immediately set up a meeting between us and the owner, Mike, and his Project Manager, Toni. They stood out because they really listened to what we wanted. Another contractor kept telling us we couldn’t do what we wanted to do with our home build and FatBoy never said no, they were creative and found a way to make things work. Our build was particularly challenging because we were “remodeling” in a view area in the City of Tacoma and all of Fatboy’s employees knew the City inspectors and had good relationships with them, which helped the process go much more smoothly. Mike is a hands-on owner and Toni, the project manager, was amazing! She worked on our project all hours of the night, was very accessible, and made sure that we were happy with the end product. Chuck, one of Fatboy’s contractors, is a perfectionist and would redo things if they weren’t to his liking. All of Fatboy’s subcontractors were also class acts and we have used them on other projects now that we are done with our home build. We can’t say enough good things about Fatboy and recommend them to anyone who is doing a remodel or new home construction.
