Powell Homes & Renovations is selling its Des Moines showroom


Powell Homes & Renovations – which has operated a showroom and Corporate Headquarters at 22211 Marine View Drive South (map below) for 10 years – has announced plans to place the property for sale this month.

According to Brooks Powell, co-owner and General Manager of the family business, the company will seek a new location that better fits its space needs. The move will not affect the location of its sister company – Powell Property Management – with Corporate Headquarters located at 22528 Marine View Drive South.

The Powell Homes & Renovations showroom offers 3,400 square feet of office space, and 3,400 square feet of alley-accessed warehouse. It has been previously occupied by a five-and-dime, carpet warehouse, and a skateboard shop before Powell bought and rehabbed the building in 2006. Interested parties may contact Chris Corr of Kidder Matthews at 206.248.7324.

Powell Homes & Renovations is a fourth generation builder, originally established in 1909. It is the longest standing home builder and renovator in the Seattle area, building and renovating thousands of quality homes.

    Late last summer I had asked them for a bid on replacing a roof deck and was told I would have to pay several hundred (non-refundable) dollars for the bid!?!? Crazy business plan. I ended up hiring another local contractor who was much more customer friendly, and who received the ~$20,000 contract. So it mystifies me that they have enough business to require a larger space. Does this make sense to anyone else?

      I own one of their “quality” homes. We call it the house that Jack built. My husband, a former building contractor, said that he had never seen anything like it! All I can say is that they had very lax building inspectors back in the day!!
