West Linn, Oregon

When the couple purchased this one-level in West Linn, they knew they had a project on their hands. They could see the potential and knew that this home had more pros than cons.

The challenge? The couple has different taste. He’s more traditional, while she’s always been a fan of contemporary homes. This 1989 home features various arches and columns, as well as white carpet, raised panel cabinetry, wainscoting, and built-in cabinets. The remodeling goal was to make impact throughout the home while focusing on the kitchen, master bedroom, paint, and flooring.

The couple worked with our team to come up with the best way to modernize their home without overhauling the design elements already implemented throughout the home.


  • The couple’s differing taste. He is more traditional; she leans contemporary
  • Incorporate existing design elements into the new look


  • Painted existing cherry cabinets
  • New island with curved radius edge echoes the ceiling radius above
  • Eliminated extra doorway into kitchen near pantry
  • Created space for microwave, beverage cooler, and new wall oven
  • Refinished all existing oak hardwood floors


Hear from the Homeowner

“Due to the overall updates, we chose not to live in the home during the remodel; so their efficient communication was greatly appreciated. They supervised everything so we did not have to be there. Their design process allowed us to make all selections prior to starting and stay within our budget. We finished on time – just in time to entertain for the holidays!”

They worked really hard to be respectful of our space and keep things running on schedule even though we kept adding new projects. Heather was incredible in guiding our vision with her design expertise. Steve Hunt – the nicest man in the world – was incredibly patient with us and went out of his way to make sure things were just right. We really appreciated Adam’s perfectionism with our fireplace – it turned out great! Every single person from Mountainwood was extremely friendly and we enjoyed having them in our home. Thank you!”
