Sherwood, Oregon

The homeowners loved their location to the desired Sherwood schools. To fulfill the long-term plan to raise their two small children in this home, they wanted to rearrange the kitchen for better functionality and create an open concept kitchen to serve as the heart of the home.


We had a load-bearing post that was part of a wall that was planned to be removed. It would have been extremely difficult and costly to remove it because of the floor system above that it was supporting.


  • Hid existing post inside a floating cabinet with millwork wrap to dress it up and make it tie into the other trim details in the home.
  • Used large format, through-body porcelain tiles to create the look of seamless, solid surface countertops but for a fraction of the cost.
  • Wrapped pendant lighting around galvanized pipe for an industrial look.
  • Added durable luxury vinyl tile flooring since the kitchen serves as a high-traffic area; the grey planks provide the farmhouse look the homeowner was after.
  • Added island to serve as a multi-use area – both for seating and as a prep area. By taking over the entire back wall with cabinets, sink and storage, the kitchen layout is efficient.
  • Installed open, wood shelving across the window allows for ample natural light without sacrificing any space to decorate.
  • Reconfigured layout created a huge improvement for the traffic pattern of the first-floor space.

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!”

He was very knowledgeable and professional, He was able to handle the changes in the schedule, calm me down when things didn't always go the way it was planned, and made the remodel an easier process than I expected. Also, Greg is a great person: kind, respectful, an all-around good guy. I consider him to be a friend of mine.”
