Update: SE 52nd Bungalow

It took several months but after plans, revisions and submissions to the city we finally have our permits!

The City of Portland is in the middle of a remodel/construction boom, so the permit office is backed-up with more work than they can handle. It does not matter how simple your plans are, or how big your project is, everyone is having to hurry-up and wait. Luckily, our patience prevailed and the permits were issued to begin work on this remodel this week.

As soon as the permits were in-hand, the General Contractor, Tod Phillips, and his team started demolition. Here are a couple of images we captured while taking the initial tour of the deconstructed site.

Preserving the main arch from the dining to the living room is a top priority.

This arch will be repeated in the widened opening from the dining room to the kitchen.

How sweet that the natural shape of the dormer is the iconic shape of a home.
