Alameda Whole House Renovation

Location: Portland, Oregon

This project involves a down-to-the-studs renovation of an existing 1920’s home in NE Portland. The existing house is a 1.5 story modest Craftsman style. When complete, the new house will be a full 2-story home featuring traditional Craftsman details both inside and out.

The entire roof and existing second floor will be removed and replaced with a new full height second story. The stairs will be reconfigured for efficiency and the plan reorganized for clarity of circulation.

The small existing front porch will be replaced with a full-width porch. An additional rear porch will be added.

The first floor will be rearranged so that there is a better relationship between the interior and the exterior. An addition will be added to the rear of the home for a main floor master suite, to accommodate aging-in-place needs. When complete, the second floor will house three bedrooms and one full bathroom.

The existing basement will be fully finished with a family room, kitchenette, laundry room, storage, guest bedroom and bathroom.

Estimated completion: Summer 2020.
