With NWGHVT (“v” for Virtual) coming to you over three successive Saturdays in May 2021 on your Internet connected device. We hope that you will join us again at this event. We offer conversations on topics you are interested in, virtual tours and discussions of new Green Home construction trends, products and ideas. It is a highlight of our professional year and a chance to show off our work and talk about your projects. Check out the plans for this year at https://www.nwgreenhometour.org/ and we hope to see you again in May!
We are excited to announce that Mighty House Construction will be featuring TWO projects on this year’s Northwest Green Home Tour. Join us for the event of the year and a chance to tour sustainably built homes and businesses all over the Seattle Area. Get inspired by projects in all shades of green, from backyard cottages and kitchen remodels to new homes built with cutting-edge green features. You’ll see and learn first-hand how your neighbors are generating their own electricity with solar panels, lowering their energy bills with insulation, and creating healthier home environments for their families with better building materials and systems. Learn from experts and really understand “what makes it green” on this educational tour. Mighty House will have one project open Saturday, and one project open Sunday. Check them out below!
Join us May 4 and 5, 2019 from 11 AM to 5 PM

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.
This family was unhappy with the layout of their existing kitchen. They needed a new kitchen that encouraged social cooking within the family, better storage solutions, and more counter top space. The goal of the project was to create a space where, while one person cooks, the other can occupy the same space to keep each other company.
Through the collaborative efforts of Entero Design and Mighty House Construction, we worked within the existing footprint of their kitchen to create a space that fit their design aesthetic and their personal needs. Entero Design worked with the clients to develop a kitchen layout that encouraged socialization between the couple and incorporated a variety of sustainable finishes and materials to make the space unique. To gain more kitchen space, the unconditioned back porch was enclosed and incorporated into the kitchen space, enlarging the kitchen by a few feet.
Mighty House Construction handled the construction process for the project. We were able to keep the pre-existing exterior stairs and reuse the interior kitchen doors. The old flooring was replaced with Marmoleum, a natural linoleum made from linseed oil and mixed with other natural products on a jute backing. The new counter tops are made from Paperstone, a solid surface counter top made from recycled paper, and the newly installed cabinets are from Canyon Creek, a local cabinet company in Monroe, WA whose wood products are Carb2 compliant. The beautiful new back-splash features Bedrock Recycled Glass tile made in Seattle from 100% recycled glass product. The space also features newly installed LED overhead lighting, and under-cabinet lighting from Northwest LED.
We will be showcasing this gorgeous West Seattle Kitchen, Dining, and Deck Remodel on October 21st and 22nd during the Master Builders Association’s 2017 Remodeled Homes Tour. Join us!
This family of four is constantly on the go! From work and school, to sports and coaching and lots of around and about activities – any obstructions to their flow have a heightened level of annoyance. Re-orienting and opening the kitchen to the dining and living room along with a more gracious access to the expanded deck provides the flexibility and function they need … the updated aesthetic was icing on the cake!
This project included removing a wall that separated the kitchen and living spaces, reworking the kitchen layout to add an island and improved functionality, and updating finishes with sensible and sustainable solutions such as: locally-produced Canyon Creek cabinetry, no-VOC Ceaserstone countertops, patching and re-finishing the wood floor instead of replacing it, and locally-sourced and produced recycled glass tile that allowed for the homeowner’s creativity to shine.
Working in tandem with the home’s existing assets, a desire for new and functional results, and a conservative budget, we were able to maintain the goals of minimal impact for maximum affect in how they live, play, and grow in their home.
We hope to see you there!
