It's hard to describe the feeling of some of these spaces. My wife Rachael says they have "soul". I guess that's one way to put it. This kitchen definitely has that feeling. It's warm, inviting, and fun as well as organized and well planned. Soulful
This modern take on a classic bungalow kitchen was once again a collaboration with architect Marty Buckenmeyer. if you want a team that will make your home magazine worthy call Marty & Me.
I Specialize in designing and Building Custom Built Ins
Large modernist wall unit in a spectacular Sellwood Foursquare. Clean lined and stripped of ornament this piece doesnt feel overwhelming to the space despite its massive size.
Occasionally I am fortunate enough to receive furniture commissions. My speciality is craftsman style with updated detailing. I truly enjoy what I do each day but I love the peaceful yet finely tuned feeling I get when building a piece of furniture. If you've dreamed of the perfect piece for any room in the house please give me a call!
Large mudroom in a gorgeous Laurelhurst Foursquare. The cabinetry matches the pre-existing kitchen styling but in a different color to delineate the space and create a less formal air.
Our wonderful neighbors, Heidi and Joe have two small children who spend lot's of time out of doors in their garden and with the other neighborhood children - they needed a mudroom to corral the boots, jackets, hats and helmets.
The clients wanted the look and feel of a vintage kitchen but with euro style overlay doors and drawers. The cabinetry is really pre-planned and thought out and built to maximize storage and organization.
This beautiful mid century house was lovingly designed and built by its first owner, an architect.
The original kitchen, while lovely, made the space feel closed off. Kathryn wanted an update that respected the vintage feel, opened up the space and had all the modern conveniences we all need. I used wood from the original kitchen walls/cabinets to build the "island" side of the kitchen including the end cabinet with the offset drawers.
This kitchen was designed and built for a discerning and wonderful cook in SE Portland. The "hutch" by the range is a custom height that works for her as a baking prep area. The cookbook shelf is paneled using her collection of vintage wine crates including one I had custom laser engraved which was owned by her late uncle! This kitchens current color is warmer and more beautiful than in the photos and has to be seen in person to be appreciated properly.
The homeowners wanted the classic look of custom "Mission" style cabinetry but took a modern approach to appliances, tiles and accessories in this Rose city bungalow. Green touches include paperstone countertops and reclaimed fir cabinets hand finished with OSMO.
The reclaimed Fir/OSMO combo on this kitchen is improving as it ages, like a fine wine it becomes richer as the Fir deepens its color.
This was a large house-wide project we did for Northwest Heritage Renovations. They are a high-end remodeling firm in Portland that truly cares about the quality and the style of the houses that they remodel. Whether it's for a client or a large scale spec remodel they aim to do things right!
Period details matter
This kitchen was skillfully designed by Stephanie Stephens for homeowners Pam and Lenny. The multi-function cabinet with sice pull out and the window bench with curved detailing are among my faves.
The inspired layout was reached with help from Architect Martin Buckenmeyer. The room was featured in Northwest Renovation and Cottages & Bungalows magazines and is packed with vintage character. My wife and I also used salvaged materials including the reclaimed Fir for the cabinetry and we love it!
Elaine was the most well prepared "homeowner contractor" ever! She had hand drawn her own design with every drawer and cabinet pre-planned for its use! her design was beautiful and her design as well as general contracting skills are impressive!
Featured in Cottages & Bungalows Magazine Jan 2012 issue, this kitchen always pleases. It is fun, organized and really stunning.
I was commissioned to build this company's office inside a commercial space with concrete floors. I built everything from the platforms to the desks including the 40 foot long bookshelf with sliding powdercoated steel doors. If you have a modern, mid century or "streamlined" home and need cabinetry to match I can help.
The owners of this stunning and historic Grant Park home were inspired by the kitchen in the iconic Gamble House in Pasadena. I borrowed a few small details to use in their updated space and built it in "green" fashion from reclaimed Douglas Fir. The result is warm and inviting yet spacious and organized.
This was the smallest kitchen I've designed but the storage space is tremendous. Custom depths and plenty of glass create a more open feeling.
Solid, heavy and very substantial, these cabinets are built to last! Small but organized space built for a chef!
This large and light filled space works very well as an eat in kitchen with it's cozy L shaped banquette and the small but well organized mudroom. it also features a small custom island and custom eat in table with reclaimed Fir top.
