Collected Hideaway

Location: Portland, OR

Space to get away and relax.

In 2018, the homeowners initiated a phased remodel with Mountainwood Homes for their 1977 Northwest Portland home, focusing on the kitchen, living and family rooms, powder bath, and laundry room. Phase two aimed to add a primary suite, update the guest bath, and move the laundry room.

Our team presented several floorplan iterations, and they initially decided on a smaller addition. However, they couldn’t sleep and changed their mind and went for the more extensive home addition extending into the backyard.

Need More Space?

Building an addition onto your home can give you the space you need in the home and neighborhood you already love. Work with our team to design a home addition that blends seamlessly into your existing home.

The primary suite is a retreat where you can relax and get away. It's not a pass-through area; it's another living space with a different backyard view. It's a wonderful neighborhood; the home addition makes the space feel balanced, and it was the right thing to do.
