Arch Cape

Completed in 2018, this home in Arch Cape, along the Oregon coast, is the ideal retreat for anyone with an affinity for ocean air and a sandy hideout. This project was a labor of love for owners Mark and Laurie Engberg, in particular. 


Seattle Showroom

Chown Hardware's New Seattle Showroom is By Designers, For Designers. Imagined by Portland design firm and long-time Chown customers, Weedman Design Partners, the showroom is as detail-oriented as its clients. Launched in July 2020, the third showroom for the fifth-generation family business showcases Chown’s extensive product offerings through bright, minimalist interiors and a flexible layout.


Dyer Studios

Hidden in the urban and suburban North Tabor neighborhood of Portland, OR is a classic, 1921 Craftsman home recently renovated for form and function.

Working with clients like Greg Sprando Construction and Turtle Mountain is a blessing. Their eye for quality craftsmanship and keen execution of design forward construction take front stage in this small condo project, maximizing every fine detail.


Tender House & Floating Home

Aptly christened the "water temple" by the owner, Kimberly DeMent. This fond reference speaks to the deliberate choice of its owner to be as close to the life of the river as possible.


The Sky’s the Limit

James and Kricken have designed and remodeled every home they’ve lived in, but this was the first home they designed and built for themselves from the ground up.


Inspiration to Transformation: Goose Hollow Showcase

Chown Hardware was trusted to provide fixtures on all four floors of the home that both maintained its historical integrity and met the high standards of quality and design for the home’s designer, Emerick Architects.


Houghton by Taylor Building and Design

The Houghton project, envisioned and built by Taylor Building & Design, is a timeless display of modern, contemporary design. It was a privilege working with Kolin Taylor while he and I coordinated the hardware and plumbing components for the home.
