Alameda Whole House Renovation

Location: Portland, Oregon

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

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

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

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

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

Materials include custom painted flush-inset cabinetry, quartz countertops, ceramic and porcelain tile, and white oak hardwood flooring.
