ARCHITECTS: TIM ASHMORE, FLASHBACK DESIGN

From incredible misfortune sometimes come the most beautiful and beloved projects–we have experienced this time and time again, most recently with this fantastic home in a beautiful area of the NW Hills.

Our homeowners found themselves houseless after an accidental fire destroyed their home in a matter of hours. The original house was a craftsman that lacked many of the needs of the homeowners. They found architect Tim Ashmore from Flashback Design. Together they set out to design a classic craftsman with Greene and Greene influences. Once we were presented with the design, we worked with them and the architect from the very start to the completion–the end result being the home they had always dreamed of in their beloved neighborhood.

Rebuilding from the ground up allowed this couple to design every feature and dream they had envisioned over the many years of living in their more outdated original home. As a result, we were able to make three levels of homework for all of their future needs. The lowest level features a vast flex/media space with a guest bedroom, full bathroom, and laundry. There is also ample storage space.

The main level is an open space to enjoy cooking, eating, relaxing, and sometimes working. There are multiple covered patios and a private backyard that is easily accessible. The first primary suite is on this level and features a covered balcony. The primary bathroom features a unique stand-alone tub on a fir platform. A unique one-of-a-kind feature that fits perfectly in this craftsman home.

The upper level features another Primary bedroom, two additional bedrooms, and a convenient second laundry. All feature beautiful plaster finishes and precise vertical grain fir millwork and doors.

The kitchen is the heart of the home and features flush inset cabinetry, soft-close hinges, and drawer pulls. A substantial island anchors the classic L-shaped kitchen. The kitchen layout captures the views of the beautiful basalt fireplace and lovely views of the wooded backyard.

Throughout the home, a clever use of color and tile design gives each space its own personality and definition but still says this home is all Craftsman. Pops of color in all the baths and unique tile selections make every room make its own statement.

The exterior of this home exudes the classic craftsman stylings of the early 1900s.  We pre-stained the cedar shingles and used a Greene & Greene trims configuration on all doors and windows. Basalt stone was selectively on the exterior to anchor the home. The combination created another New Old Home and fits in perfectly as another classic Portland craftsman home.
