Lakeview Design & Construction, Inc. was started in 1984 as Seattle Solarium by Bob Dorres and Rollin Francisco. Both have degrees in architecture from UW and extensive backgrounds in energy conservation, solar greenhouses, and specialty glazing.   But they found that their real passion was the whole process of remodeling, from design through completion. 


Lakeview Design & Construction has consistently won Excellence in Remodeling Awards.  Winning categories have included: Best Addition, Best Bathroom, Best Kitchen, and Best Finish Details.  Our projects have been published in the Seattle Times, Journal American, Qualified Remodelor, Sunset, and House Beautiful.


Recently Lakeview Design has completed several second story additions, numerous kitchens and baths, a swim spa addition, dining room addition, and several fireplace mantles.


The great majority of our remodeling business every year is repeat and referral.  We take this as a sign that our previous customers continue to trust us and to have confidence in our ability to perform for their friends.  References from our customers are available for you to review on the Customer Comments page.


In 2005, Rollin Francisco left Lakeview Design to pursue other interests.  Bob Dorres continues as the President and Owner.  Our staff of lead carpenters/ project managers are very experienced in all phases of remodeling and each one is capable of running jobs ranging from a simple bath to an extensive whole house remodel.
