Sweeping views and dramatic lines dominate this 1980s retreat in Black Butte that was originally designed by Milton A. Stricker, an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright. Because of the unique design, it was critical that this remodel maintain the essence of the home’s structure and natural surroundings while making better use of available space.
This project involved a kitchen rejuvenation with installation of a large new window, a master bath enlargement, a new children’s bathroom, a mudroom expansion, a new site for the home’s laundry room, and other improvements throughout the four-bedroom, five-bathroom house. Highlights include custom-built bunk beds in the octagonal kids’ bunk room, rebuilt decks, custom cabinets, interior walls wrapped with the highest-grade cedar, and designer tilework.
By taking advantage of unused storage space and creative reframing, we gave the owners an updated sanctuary that provides a welcome escape from city life.
