Secluded in the City

Location: West Linn, OR

Designed for the property.

When our clients purchased this 4.5-acre property in West Linn, they thought they would remodel it to build an addition to the small cottage. Instead, they decided to build a luxury custom home on their property. They found an exterior elevation for a house in Tennessee on Zillow that they loved, inspiring the exterior of their Oregon abode. We designed from the outside in and created the floorplan to fit their needs while taking in the views.
