Asian Themed Mid-Century Remodel

Asain Themed Mid-Century Remodel

In this project, we completely demolished the existing family, dining, and living room down to the foundation. We modified the foundation to enlarge the spaces and make it more livable. The duct work below the floor was upgraded. We framed new (thicker) walls, installed fiberglass BIBS (blown-in blanket system) insulation in the walls and ceiling. The owner liked the look of modern materials, so Paralam beams were used for headers and structural members. We created custom, clear vertical grain fir cabinets. The position of the entry door was relocated and numerous upgrades were made to the home during construction. We remodeled the kitchen, the main entrance to the house, and the upstairs bedroom suite as well.

“I’ve had major renovations done on four houses, including a 100 year old 3-story townhouse in Chicago, this has been by far the best and smoothest remodel experience in my life”

Project Details

Ipe Hardwood Flooring

The floors, decks and some exterior window trim are Ipe hardwood. This is a tropical hardwood that is sustainably harvested. It takes a skilled and experienced carpenter to successfully install this extremely hard and durable product.

Aging In Place

This dishwasher was raised for ease of use. We have extensive knowledge and experience working with clients who want to remain in their home comfortably for years to come, as well as clients with disabilities.

Copper Rain Chain

Instead of standard downspouts, we installed a hammered copper cup rain chain. A note of caution: in rainy, blustery Corvallis, some may regret this choice since water splashes well beyond the chain.

Fire charred pantry

To create a unique look, we torched the wood doors of the cabinets, then wirebushed loose char off, before sealing the cabinets with lacquer. Please ask us about custom touches for your project.

What our Clients are Saying

“Excellent attention to detail, aesthetics, and quality before, during, and after the (bathroom remodeling) process.”

Liz Pearce, Corvallis

“The client greatly appreciated the clear and detailed estimate and the professionalism shown in it. In addition, the inclusion of a project completion timeline, and one that seems reasonably rapid, was well received by the client. While your proposal was higher than the other bid received, the thoroughness and items mentioned above, provided the client with confidence that there is a reasonable reason for the higher price. The clients are seriously considering your bid as they see a lot of benefits to working with a company of your size, experience, and thoroughness.”

“It was a good experience. We have used them a couple of times. They did very high quality work and I would not change any detail. They were very responsive. We did not really have any problems with them. They were right on schedule towards completing the project but their price was a little bit high.”
