This project was a happy exercise in intimate, personal space making. It was a study in thinking small with big results. A narrow lot in NE Portland, Or. (40' x 100') with a very small old one bedroom house had leaking roofs and no bedroom suite.

We tore down an ineffective addition (the original tiny house had four tiny additions and a mini basement all in full use) and added a compact two story addition at the rear of the house. This created a dining area, sitting/study area (with French doors to a south facing patio) and upstairs a vaulted mini suite with a tiny bathroom, bed and wardrobe space, and study nook. This too opened through French doors to a south facing balcony built for two to have tea and Sunday paper reading on.

The Oregonian Newspaper ran an article on this project and its landscape plan in their home and garden weekly pull out. Find it here:
