Builder grade or inspired design?I recently was told around 70% of all home purchases in the last calendar year result in a complete renovation or a teardown and rebuild when the new homeowners take possession. That is an astounding number of decisions when it comes to inspired designs.I thought it would be fun to highlight a few items that set the design tone when customizing finishes to suit your design esthetic.Let me start with the kitchen sink.Here are 12 kitchen sink options. Do any of these sinks stand out as one you can’t live without? Enjoy!https://www.mikefisherconstruction.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Farmhouse-Sink.mp4
My clients here on Bainbridge Island become my neighbors and often my friends. I see my company Mike Fisher Construction as a community member ready, willing, and able to help my neighbors renovate or construct fully custom homes – to suit all or even most of your particular tastes. Many clients seek me out for quality construction and impeccable attention to detail. I have lived and worked here on Bainbridge Island for over 30 years.
A custom home is a blank canvas waiting to be filled with your unique ideas. I see the role of the general contractor as providing tools for collaboration around design and details to ensure you’ll get a chance to design a home that reflects your taste, personality, and style.
Instead of struggling with a pre-existing floor plan and ending up with a semi-functional home, a custom home builder will help you maximize every inch of usable space. Whether you want a custom library wall, a staircase in the middle of the house, separate rooms, or an open floor plan, your home will be adapted to your personal lifestyle and needs.
We’ve become intimately familiar with our home’s limitations and positives. A year at home rapidly created a new wish list for our homes.
Pre “pause” home buyers were inching closer and closer to city or community-driven living. During the “pause,” it became apparent we needed more space both inside and outside of our homes. Many of us find it possible to rethink even relocate our lives with a new must-have list for our custom home.
From March – July this year, there has been a 16.8% increase in the number of listings containing the word “office” compared to last year. This phenomenon is so new the MLS has yet to even allow for the word office or den space in the listings. Realtors are writing the potential in the descriptions.
I found several ingenious images around the internet worth sharing on the subject of a home office or dedicated workspaces. As a general contractor, I wonder how many clients will come armed with custom home designs that include fully dedicated space for work or a requirement for dual-purpose areas?
One idea stood out to me as being present in all of these ingenious design ideas. You must carve out a footprint to house the dedicated space, even if it is tucked into an existing room.
My job as general contractor of your dream is to ensure when we embrace current market trends; we refine the idea with edits that reflect your expression. Whether building from your custom dream home from scratch or working to reinvent your existing footprint, great living experiences are created when design and construction result in inspired living.
Not only do you get everything you’ve always wanted in a residence (and none of the things you don’t need), but you can also select details and even the ideal location. You won’t get that freedom and flexibility with existing structures.

A note from the Custom Home Builders Day,
For many, the most expensive item we will order handmade is a home. Notice I said handmade. That’s right; homes are still made by hand, one at a time. Tools are involved, but hand-to-tool is the mode, Which brings the conversation up around vendors. General Contractor Mike Fisher has carved a name in custom home building circles by working with the best vendors.
When building your dream home in the Pacific Northwest, one would imagine the influence of nature will eventually lead you to design with beautiful rocks and stone. Let me introduce you to Marenakos Rock Center. My go-to vendor for all things stone. For those of you who enjoy the visual stimulation, only raw stone can provide a simple way through the location will offer ample items to view, touch, and admire. Marenakos Rock Center has been a fixture in the Northwest Landscape Community for over 50 years. Marenakos Inc. is a third-generation family-owned business located just east of Issaquah, Washington.
