My Houzz: Reinventing a 1930 Fire Station for Family Life

When Seattle Fire Station No. 38 became too outdated for modern needs, the city put it up for auction — creating a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for entertaining and lifestyle blogger Alexandra Hedin and her contractor husband, Adam. Alexandra had grown up in the neighborhood and had fond memories of the fire station, so the couple seized the chance to turn the landmark building into a work and play space tailored to their family’s needs. 

Although both the Hedins and Alexandra’s parents, Gwen and Thom Kroon, have homes nearby, the firehouse has become their “daytime home,” where they work, cook, entertain and spend quality time together.
