A new design client was referred to SBaird Design by a real estate associate. Anne, had just purchased this sweet Mt.Tabor bungalow. In need of extensive remodeling and repairs, Anne came to us with an open heart and enthusiasm. Her goal: to remodel this little gem into the mecca for all her family and grandchildren; to design a cozy, welcoming space and design the space to be her forever home.
Excited to take on a new challenge and make a new friend, we are thrilled with Anne and her home. After 2 long years of woking on the Manzanita remodel, we were ready to be back and focused in Portland. However, we were not ready to part with the people of that project. Having established a symbiotic relationship with Tod Phillips, the General Contractor who completed the Manzanita job, we were overjoyed when he informed us he was willing to continue working with us on a project in Portland. An initial meeting between Anne and Tod was arranged and they hit it off splendidly. The team was solidified. SBaird Design and Wood Specialty Construction would continue their partnership.
These photos are from SBaird Design’s first site consultation and subsequent meetings with Tod Phillips of Wood Specialty Construction, where we documented the home and began to make as-builts for space planning.
