What makes Westhill different?

Westhill’s team of designers and skilled craftsmen provide a custom specialized experience for each and every one of our clients. From planning, design, and permitting through the construction of your remodel or custom home to on-going home maintenance after the project is completed, Westhill is with you all the way.
Our team coordinates, and supervises all the trade contractors, resources, schedules, budgets, quality management and details for any given project. That is an experience you just won’t get from any general contractor

Why should I build my home with Westhill?

Westhill will create your ideal home from the ground up. Building homes is how we got our start—in the Westhill Neighborhood of Bothell. And today it remains one of the most fulfilling things we do because of the close partnerships (and friendships) we develop with our clients during this highly personal experience. Years of experience in planning, managing and delivering these complex projects, gives clients peace of mind and ensures that we deliver fully on your vision.

How long will building a home take?

Each home renovation project, whether it be a custom home or a small bathroom remodel, comes with a realistic schedule based on its complexity. We do not offer a price based on time or square footage because everything that we do is custom to the homeowner reflecting theirs specific wants and needs. If we happen to encounter unexpected delays – which do come up in this industry, we alert you at that stage and provide an adjusted timeline if required. We don’t wait until the last day, as we think surprises should be saved for birthday parties.

How long have you been building luxury custom homes?

CEO/Founder Charlie Russell started Westhill during the summer of 1974, and we have continued to expand and help our community create their dream homes ever since!

Why should I use Westhill for my remodeling project?

We will provide you with an experience and a result your whole family will love. A successful remodeling project whether it is a kitchen, bath, media room or outdoor living space, isn’t just about delivering a high quality finished product (although we do that too). It’s also about how the product is delivered. Westhill works with you during the process to make sure you have the opportunity to be as involved as you’d like to be, that while we are in your home our work is as low impact as possible, that we deliver more than what you were expecting and that when all is said and done, you are happy with the result and the whole remodeling experience.

What is a design/build company?

As a Design-Build company,  we are responsible for both the design and construction of your project.  From concept to completion, we manage all the project phases, workers, dealing with the county and thousands of moving parts throughout the entire design/build project.  We listen and design your project to meet your needs, wants and budget.

With Westhill you only hire one construction firm and get everything you need for your home improvements. You’re not left with the job of coordinating or mediating while you’re renovating. It is all our responsibility; and we are dedicated to fulfilling your dreams for your home.
