Bothell Entertainment Space & Garage Build

Bothell, WA

The Bothell, WA Garage Build + Entertainment Space was a unique project that involved constructing a detached garage in a tight spot nestled into a hillside. The objective was to create a functional garage/workshop with a finished interior while also incorporating a covered outdoor entertaining space on the side of the garage. The client's vision was to have a versatile space that provided both practical storage solutions and a comfortable area for hosting gatherings and socializing with friends and family.

Garage Build Key Features:

1. The garage/workshop construction provided space for vehicles and storage.

2. The interior of the garage was finished to create a clean, polished look.

3. Strategically placed can lights illuminated the interior, ensuring a well-lit and user-friendly environment.

4. The garage flooring was sealed, enhancing its durability and resistance to wear and tear.

5. Thoughtfully placed windows were installed to allow natural light into the garage, reducing the need for artificial lighting during the day.

6. To provide comfort during colder months, a ceiling-mounted heater was installed to keep the interior temperature pleasant.

Outdoor Living Space Key: Features: 

1. A central gas fire table served as a focal point and a source of warmth and ambiance for outdoor gatherings.

2. Overhead string lights were hung across the entertainment area, creating a charming and inviting atmosphere during evenings.

3. The thoughtful placement of the outdoor living space combined with a sturdy patio cover that was integrated into the side of the the garage, provided natural protection from wind and rain, ensuring a comfortable experience for guests.

Verum Construction, and the entire team of employees, and their sub-contractors hit 100% of the mark.

We began discussions with Verum in late 2021 for contracting to build a detached shop/garage in the city of Bothell. After working with Dale Loukusa, their lead estimator, and going through a couple of bid revisions and subsequent negotiations, we signed paperwork in January of 2022.

There was a budget, a timeline, and a possible order of events for those metrics. We started construction EARLY!! on June 20th of 2022 and the race was on. From the beginning of the bidding process, to the start of ground breaking, to virtually every step of the way...the Verum Construction team was amazing to work with.

Our "General" or supervisor, Mr. Andy Wittenberg, was a joy to work with. He was always on time, managing the sub-contractor flow, and keeping us informed of any progress, or delay, as soon as he knew of them. He even did so during family vacations, as well as away time. Amazing customer service!!

When we wanted to see slight revisions of plans, or add to the project scope there was great workability, and an eagerness to help us see our vision. On that note we added quite a large "change order" to the last portion of the project and added a covered living space. We came to an agreement on price, with both parties wanting to see the project happen...and Verum Construction rose to the task. Even with the "change order" of good sized magnitude Verum Construction still finished our project within a couple of weeks after the estimated timeframe!! The project was pretty much finished around November 10th.

We are 100% satisfied with our working with Verum and could not imagine getting the results we did with any one else. We will look to them for any next major project, because they have hit the mark!
