Revamped & Ready to Entertain

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

The Architect: Jon Nordby & Nordby Design Studio

The Project: Karwin Residence Remodel

The Location: West Linn, Oregon

The Homeowners: Tom Karwin is the owner/president of Fireside Distributions. Nancy Karwin is a portfolio manager at Northwest Investment Counselors

The Brief: Update a Northwest contemporary residence built in 1990 to better match its evolving neighborhood and increase its curb appeal.

The Game Plan:  
- A complete exterior uplift to a Craftsman style
- A new, larger entry way and renovated back patio

The Result:
- Cultured stone, cedar-shake siding and a bold exterior color give the remodeled home a timeless, more site-appropriate feel. 
- The entryway now features a covered stone patio with a seating area and water feature.
- A two-level outdoor living space with three separate areas: a barbecue area that is covered for year-round use, a sitting area, and an outdoor dining area.
- A stone fireplace and raised deck use materials to match the home's new exterior cladding.
