Steve Kunkel

Steve began business in 1975 building spec homes, then custom homes. In 1984 he moved to Newport Hills in Bellevue and began remodeling kitchens, additions, basements, bathrooms and decks. Since 1993 Steve has completed over 115 projects for 70 clients in Newport Hills alone. In 2022 he began to focus entirely on planning, design and consulting for residential projects.

Steve is a graduate of the University of Washington with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He started Steve Kunkel Master Builders, Inc. in 1975 and began building homes. In 1984 he began remodeling homes as well, and since 1990 most of his work has been design/build/remodeling projects. Steve works with every client in the beginning phases of the project to help establish objectives, the scope of work and develop design ideas that are functional, beautiful and cost effective. After hours and on weekends Steve likes to attend classical music concerts, take day hikes in the area and cook pancake breakfasts for his grandchildren.

“I get excited when we can find ways to modify existing interior spaces to function better which in turn makes the home easier to live in and more enjoyable too.”
