Best of luck!

Just want to share a different perspective. When you buy especially in the current market you often get features at a discount in existing homes than if you pay to have it built. Building materials and such are caught up in the inflation of commodities while existing home prices are down. It may be worth exploring homes on the market in Madrona that may be close to what you want or at least leave you with a smaller project. I can appreciate your personal desire to create but it doesn't come without frustration.
