A big thanks to everyone who came out to our new office to celebrate our 8th anniversary! It was really special to share this moment with our friends, colleagues and collaborators.
We’ve worked with Chinook Lumber and the Fritch Mill in Snohomish, WA on several projects over the last year, supplying lumber and milling logs from building sites to incorporate into project interiors. They were part of a Dickie’s workwear campaign recently, and we love how this video turned out! Lucky to be working with such cool craftspeople.
We’re grateful and excited to be adding Stefan to our leadership team; Stefan is an integral part of our team, having been with us for the past five years working on multi-family, commercial, and private residences providing a meticulous, technical insight and understanding that helps out projects succeed and our work be easily communicated between us, the clients, and the site team. He has helped us set the standard for how our technical drawings look. Making technical details be beautifully integrated into the finished design.
We’re excited to share that Allied8 co-founder Leah Martin has joined the board of Spark Northwest, an organization dedicated to ensuring everyone has access to affordable, clean energy, including those in middle- and low-income households, through renewable energy projects and policy reform.
With sadness we share that Joe Staton, the Executive Director of CAYA (Central Area Youth Association), passed away in June. He was a tireless advocate for the youth of the Central Area and his legacy will forever be remembered. Allied8 feels so privileged to have worked with him and the rest of the CAYA organization for the last three years. We will continue to provide support to CAYA as they navigate their plans for future growth. Before Joe dedicated himself to his community and CAYA, he was a professional baseball player and played for the Detroit Tigers. He used his extraordinary athletic abilities to inspire young athletes in the Central Area to dream big.
Framing is all done, and skylights are being installed at this project in Leshi, updating a very 80s structure into a modern, spacious home. Keep an eye on our Instagram post for some fun images of the siding and steel stair stair install.
We’re about to break ground on a new guest suite inside a Gordon Walker designed home–in fact, this was his very first house project, built in 1969! It’s our privilege to be working in it.
The scaffolding is finally gone at our Orcas house! It’s great to be able to fully see the way this home leans over the hill; anchored to the rock in six places by its steel moment frame. Construction is expected to finish in the Spring.
We’ve officially broken ground on our Yarrow Point remodel and hardscape project. New sliding doors and windows are currently being installed. Stay tuned for more on this project as we continue to near its completion!
