In the years leading up to Rafn’s involvement, Snoqualmie Valley Alliance Church’s annex building had numerous additions done over time, causing an inefficient flow and an unusual structure to work with. The scope of this renovation project included replacing the metal roofing, siding, windows, and exterior doors. The gym, kitchen, and bathrooms were renovated and a performance theater and two-story entry way were added. The interior was updated with new finishes throughout, as well as new doors and lighting. New HVAC and fire alarm systems were added and the current electrical and plumbing systems were updated.

On the outside of the building, exposed rough timbers and masonry wainscoting turned the outdated porch into a visually interesting entry way. It also visually tied this building to the existing church building on campus that had been built decades later than the annex. The two buildings now look as though they belong together thanks to the architectural design.

The Rafn crew was able to self perform a substantial portion of the work including demolition, wood framing, siding, concrete, window & door installation, interior millwork installation, soffit and fascia installation, and miscellaneous exterior wood design elements. The building is filled with exposed beams and connection points that are normally covered but exposed for all to see on this project.
