Portland, Oregon

Completed 2009

Architect of Record: Corey Omey

Green building is essential to our shift to a sustainable future. Here we wanted to preserve our home’s small footprint while adding larger, more efficient and more comfortable living spaces. We are proud that most of the materials are recycled. Finding them all locally was a lot of fun.” Corey Omey, Architect & Home Owner

This remodel included completely rebuilding the second floor; adding stairs and bathrooms on the second and basement floors; re-insulating the entire home; installing rain-screen siding and metal roof systems; replacement of all window and doors; and new finishes, fixtures, cabinetry, and casework throughout.
