Feel at Home in Your Own Backyard

We love making space work better. These avid gardeners have a two-level patio that needed to be upgraded and reworked to be more livable in all seasons and better connected to their home and quiet gardens in their spacious backyard. Each level received updates, stairways, and steps that made enjoying the space so much easier. See the project details here.

Custom Cottage Built to Last

Nicknamed the “Crow’s Nest” this guest cottage on an historic farm property in rural Oregon was built on the site of the original chicken coop. The cottage was designed to accommodate visiting adult children and their families, but also employs many “aging in place” principles to provide a comfortable living space for the clients in their later years. Siting takes advantage of a special location on the property, providing privacy but also farm and valley views and easy access to the main house. See more about this project here.

A Remodeled Kitchen & Bath Changes Everything

A cramped, poorly laid out kitchen and small, outdated master bath was almost enough for these homeowners to consider selling their home. Rather than leave their cherished neighborhood, they chose to remodel with us. In the kitchen, we moved the cooktop and wall ovens, reoriented and expanded the island, and created larger openings into the dining room and out to the patio. In the master bath we installed a more contemporary vanity, put in a modern, freestanding tub in, and installed a steam shower. Now, these homeowners have their ideal home in their favorite neighborhood.

A Home Away from Home (In the Backyard!)

Sometimes we all need a little home-away-from-home to relax in. Our client, a cigar and bourbon aficionado, wanted it to be in his backyard!
