Cody, a graphic designer and owner of the custom furniture shop Modgrain, his realtor wife, Kamie, and their daughter, Sophia, have settled into one of the hidden gem neighborhoods of Seattle. North Beach is close to the water, has numerous parks with views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains and is a gorgeous area to call home; it has a very California living feel to it.

This artist/woodworker and realtor make quite the dynamic duo. With Kamie’s extensive knowledge of the home market in Seattle and Cody’s woodworking and building skills they were able to find an incredible home in a lovely neighborhood that they could continue to update to fit their style.

Cody has remodeled the basement, the master and downstairs bathroom, the laundry room, the garage doors, painted the exterior and put a new deck off the kitchen. They still have the kitchen, living room and upstairs bathroom to check off the list but are well on their way to creating what they originally envisioned. They are turning their home into a modern wonderland, and their love of art and design is evident all throughout the house. Besides the incredible remodeling, you can also see Cody’s work all over the house like the stunning chest in the living room, the iPad stand in the bedroom, and art projects that he’s made with Sophia over the years.
