"A Change of Personality"
Elise had a 1970’s single story, basic builder-grade home with aluminum siding that covered most of her North Portland property. She needed more space and wanted to give her home a completely new style.
Everything had to go! Well, almost everything: We were able to keep two exterior walls in place, the stairs to the half-basement, and the bathroom on the main level. The main floor was completely redesigned with the addition of a beautiful craftsman front porch. A new staircase was tucked in behind the existing stairs where a chimney once existed and an entire a new upper level was born. We designed it in a“4-square” craftsman style with custom details throughout.
