It’s a common problem many of us have faced; You love your existing home, but you’re bursting at the seams and need more space. Should you sell your home and upgrade to a larger one or pull some equity out and create more space where you are now? With the escalating housing market in Portland this isn’t an easy decision.

Our client came to us with a similar dilemma. They wanted to create more space in their home, yet maintain the modern yet classic style of they place they have called home for many years. They were looking to create more space in the front of their house, while upgrading many of the materials and textiles to extend the longevity of their property. They also wanted to do all of this it at affordable price. After interviewing a number of Contractors and receiving multiple bids, Kaya was the hands-down choice for this unique addition project in SW Portland.

With some creative design and planning in close consult with our client, the full addition included a large new kitchen, an expanded living area, a basement, cedar siding and a new garage door. The results were exactly what our client ordered: more space, a modern yet classic style upgrade and an extension of life on their home, all at an affordable price.
