Our process includes design and attention to detail. This is one of the facets of our firm that sets us apart from other design build companies. We are artists and we excel at quality craftsmanship.
Most recently, we worked with local Portland homeowners through two distinct phases of transforming a cramped, rustic Mediterranean-style house into an intelligent, comfortable home for the expanding family of five.
The first phase focused on converting the existing crawlspace into a sunny lower level. Instead of acting as a liability, the space limitations of this house served as a creative springboard. Every inch of the 607 ft² addition was planned to maximize function and storage: a craft room, play room, custom Murphy bed, kitchenette, laundry, and full bathroom were realized from such an initial small footprint.
We were entrusted with a second remodel that prioritized reconfiguring the middle level of their home, which contained the bedrooms and baths, as well as remodeling the cramped, outdated kitchen on the main level. We created a new floor plan with minor bump-out additions mirrored on both levels, allowing us to both expand the kitchen above and create a sorely needed third bedroom below.
The professional-grade kitchen is a marvel containing custom, functional alder cabinetry at every turn – so much cabinetry in fact, that we were able to remove a walk-in pantry and still gain storage! That allowed the kitchen to open graciously to the living room while replacing a peninsula eat-in bar with a new, large separate island created a comfortable circular flow for guests, kids, and the serious home cooks!
We left no area unturned and no detail behind. It’s this sort of craftsmanship that we love, as well as making you happy in every respect of your home.
