This handsome Bellevue, Washington, retreat was designed and built by its owner's stepson.
The corner work counter overlooking the rear yard has plenty of room for tending to orchids and other plants. Rigid insulation, double-glazed windows, a standing metal-seam roof, and a thermostat-controlled heater keep it dry and comfortable throughout the year.

These homeowners designed this kitchen using the concept of integrated space. Visually the kitchen, rimmed with a boomerang-curved bar, is a seamless extension of the living and dining rooms. Can't spot the refrigerator? That's the idea. Panels of maple with insets of bird's-eye maple disguise the appliance.
