Americana Farmhouse

Location: Hillsboro, OR

Room to breathe.

During the pandemic, our clients sold their Beaverton home, purchased a farmhouse on 5 acres in Hillsboro, and got started on a whole house remodel right away. The 1990 home needed work to upgrade the space and maximize the views of Mt. Hood. While the project scope was extensive, the kitchen and great room were important spaces. The couple has a forever home to entertain family, garden, and enjoy their hobbies in a comfortable home in the country.
