It's been another busy year for drw design build. A lot has happened since our last summary in 2012:

Design Matters: A Tour of Exceptional Portland Homes

Update: 10/10/2013 - The AIA Homes tour is this Saturday.  We're looking forward to showing people around one of our favorite projects.

We're very excited that our Cable Hill House project has been chosen by the AIA Portland to be one of seven houses included in the 2013 home tour: "Design Matters: A Tour of Exceptional Portland Homes".  The tour takes place on Saturday, October 12th.  Tickets are $40, and available from the AIA.

Looking back at 2012

We wish everybody a very happy New Year, and look forward to 2013.
