We completed this SW Portland project in 2010, which involved creating a new two car garage, as well as an interior remodel of the existing residence. Due to its location on the site, the addition is particularly prominent on the approach to the building, and so we took great care to match the style of the new garage to the existing 1923 house. The owners tell us that visitors frequently don't believe that the garage isn't an original part of the house.
Here is the project under construction, in July of 2009, just before the concrete slab for the garage was poured. The steep slope on the site required the large retaining wall seen on the left.
