  • Find the Perfect Home in Bothell!

    July 15, 2016 /

    Sometimes, you want all the amenities of living in the city without actually living in the city. While it’s not always easy to have your cake and eat it too, in Bothell you can have the best of both worlds. In close proximity to both Lake Washington and I-405, Bothell enjoys easy access to the city and the slower pace of the suburbs. As such, it’s a great choice for those of us who want to enjoy a Seattle lifestyle without actually living in Seattle proper.   Now part of the Seattle metropolitan area, Bothell began as a much sleepier logging and farming town. The region derives its name from one David Bothell, who built the Bothell Hotel in 1885. Bothell began to grow in stages, first when the railroad came through, and then in the early 20th century when cars became king. With these new transportation options, more and more people could live in Bothell and commute to Seattle for work. So began a trend that crowned Bothell as one of Seattle’s most popular suburbs.   Bothell has experienced something of a renewal in recent years, with city officials and residents alike striving to maintain the city’s charm while…Read more

  • Colorado, Ho! (Part 1)

    July 8, 2016 /

    Way out in the wilds of Oregon, an overstuffed hatchback is laboring up the side of a tiny mountain at about eight o’clock in the morning. Though the recommended speed limit is a brisk 70 miles per hour, the wee beleaguered hatchback is huffing and puffing along at a sluggish 35, due to its general and aforementioned overstuffed-ness. Now (if you’ll humor me), let’s peek in the window of this particular hatchback and take a closer look at the driver: keeping his grumbles and complaints to a bare minimum, the driver (who, it’s worth mentioning, is a devilishly handsome fellow) stoically switches on the emergency blinkers and guides his vehicle gamely up the giddy steepness of the mountain slopes while, in the passenger seat beside him, the driver’s patient and long-suffering girlfriend encourages him with well-chosen words bursting with good-natured positivity. There’s a light drizzle pattering over the windshield, and everyone involved is suffering from a more-or-less dramatic lack of caffeine. I mention this seemingly random scenario because it’s exactly the situation I found myself in a few days ago as I set off on yet another move to yet another state. As you probably guessed, I was the driver,…Read more

  • The Art of Seattle Architecture

    July 5, 2016 /

    Seattle is famous for many things - coffee, music, natural beauty - but, strangely enough, few people are familiar with the architecture of the Emerald City. Or, if they are familiar with it, their knowledge is probably limited to the Space Needle. This gap might not seem significant for most folks, but to a Seattle native like me, it’s nothing short of a travesty. Seattle is home to some quietly majestic architecture, and the residential construction of Seattle houses is particularly striking. In that case, it’s time that it was recognized. Below, you’ll find some classic styles for Seattle houses. The Seattle Box A quintessential style for Seattle houses, the Seattle Box offers a simple but highly customizable aesthetic. Sometimes called the Four Square, these Seattle houses are primarily characterized by their boxy style, hip roofs, modest dormers, and generously proportioned porches with columns. While the overarching characteristic of the Seattle Box is elegant simplicity, the model is also something of a blank slate and looks great when elements from other styles, such as Craftsman architecture, are added onto it. The Bungalow These Seattle houses exploded onto the scene during the first third of the twentieth century, remaining wildly popular…Read more
