Hillside House

Location: Portland, Oregon

This whole house remodel transforms a modest, circa 1941 1-1/2 story house on a double lot with fantastic Mt. Hood views into a spacious three story home with a finished basement and two-car garage.

The natural stained cedar shingle cladding is set off by thick painted wood trim around the windows and a flare detail that shelters each opening in the façade and delineates the floors. The steeply pitched roof and large overhanging eaves protect the building and, along with the balanced proportions, lend it a traditional, crafted look.

The interior features traditional detailing, painted custom flush inset cabinetry, hardwood floors, and polished nickel hardware.

The exterior features cedar shingles, flared siding details at the floor line, painted dimensional trim, exposed timber framing, cottage windows, canopies at exterior doors and windows, and a covered entry porch.
