Rogers West has just completed and listed these two new homes, Lot 18 and Lot 20, in the new Northwest Community of The Lodges at Bachelor View. Follow the links and be sure to look at the inside photos as well, as the builder paid a lot of attention to detail. Both homes are spacious […]

Modern take on the classical prairie style

Post Image

It’s not two-story- those upper windows frame the 16′ tall living room. A build like that is no problem for YCH Custom Homes. They’ve put extensive care into their construction to present classical styles with modern influence. The result is a unique home that feels much larger than it is (1542 sq. ft.) and sits […]

Garages and shops, shops and garages

Post Image

Wanting more work and storage space remains a strong driver for remodels and additions. Garages for new homes have gotten smaller over time, and for those who have room on their property a new garage or shop addition is a great way to add functionality and build equity. We just recently completed the design of […]

Post Image

Intended to be a retirement home for his client, we worked together to take advantage of all the potential of the property.

Building continues after the harshest winter in years

Post Image

Central Oregon experienced record winter weather early this year which caused quite a few insurance claims, but newer homes built by updated codes did well. The Bend Bulletin reports: “Billy Staten, who works in Bend’s building safety division, said with the exception of the old Ray’s Food Place on Century Drive collapsing, the city hasn’t received […]

Small homes are great homes

Post Image

It’s just been too busy of a summer to remember to post updates, but I recently received some pictures of a newly completed small home. Only 1532 sq. ft. and single level, it’s a great retirement home for it’s new occupant. Oh, and it also has an oversize garage that’s much bigger than it appears […]

Post Image

I’m excited to show this newly completed home located in the Tetherow golf community just southwest of Bend. It is the latest project by Bob and Choi Yelas, who are one of the area’s most talented and experienced builders of high end modern style homes. The design process was challenging, and a home that is over 4200 sq. ft. takes time […]

Two modern style projects close to completion

Post Image

A large custom home in Tetherow and a triple townhome project on Newport Avenue in Bend are nearing completion. Both projects are modern style but very different in application. The 4200+ sq. ft. two-story home expresses design that is intended to be experienced as a whole, with intention and emphasis in massing and projections. Materials […]

Some homes take a little longer than others

Post Image

I originally worked on this project back on 2006 for a client back in the Midwest. Years later the client contacted me for assistance with the project. I was surprised as I thought it had been long finished, but it had simply taken him a lot longer to get started than originally planned. This week […]

The balconies aren’t framed up yet, but in their picture with the article you can see special yellow vertical panels which are part of the firewall system. It’s a newer product called GlasRoc and it’s stronger […]

RV enthusiast retirement home

Post Image

It’s great to design a home around someone’s lifestyle. This home is a modestly sized main level with a loft room above next to a full sized and 60’ deep RV garage! Obviously a house where the garage is bigger than the residence isn’t for everyone, but it’s perfect for the owners. Nestled into the […]

Multi-phase projects

Post Image

Sometimes a new home needs to be built one part at a time. In this case the homeowners live and work in another area and like to vacation here in Central Oregon. They planned to move here and retire on land they purchased but weren’t sure when that was going to happen. So we designed […]

These improvements – including new ADA crosswalks – were […]
