↑ We begin with the remodeled Paul Kirk home in Redmond's Rose Hill neighborhood. At first glance, it's a bit sleeker than it's counterpart. Inside, we're digging the exposed wood beams, the fancy bar and the sleek bathrooms. The home still maintains a lot of Kirk's style but also keeps it in line with current times.
↑ Now it's on to Kirk's Federal Way home in the Marine Hills neighborhood. It's bigger than the other one and featuring huge ceilings in the main area, tons of wooden accents and a beautiful window wall look out on Puget Sound. The home resembles it's 70's roots a bit more but it also blends in with the surrounding natural setting much better.
