Walnut Park

The existing 1920 house had suffered the consequences of years of renters and unfortunate remodels. The house was dismantled, gutted and brought back to take its rightful place on a street full of classic Portland houses. There was extensive use of reclaimed building materials in this project. Most of the kitchen cabinets were made from re-milling the dismantled douglas fir roof rafters. All of the rest of the built-ins were made from reclaimed lumber as well. A lot of focus was given to create interesting textures and built-ins accessible for a young child to explore.
