WILLCO's newest client is Gerrit Huizenga. WILLCO is working with him on a comprehensive design-build project to add another floor to his existing two-story, two-bedroom, two-bathroom home located on the West Hills in the Hillside neighborhood in Northwest Portland. The existing home was built in 1964 and is approximately 1700 SF. The home has spectacular views overlooking the Willamette River and downtown Portland. With this remodel, he would like to build up, capturing more of the views and expanding his living area and outdoor deck area to create a comfortable and functional home to entertain his family and friends.
WILLCO is excited to share in Gerrit's vision to create a new master suite, two guest bedrooms, and additional entertaining areas, both inside and on exterior decks. We will be incorporating many sustainable aspects in this project, including capturing rainwater with a green living roof system, solar panels, water and energy conservation, and high insulation values in the walls and ceilings.
We have completed the preliminary site verification and the existing building as-built process. We are currently in preliminary design, and we look forward to moving ahead on all aspects of the design. Stay tuned for final concept drawings on this project.
