PROBLEMS: The original 1970s NW Portland master suite provided limited closet storage, and the one-person bathroom was totally dysfunctional! The husband banged his elbows on the shower walls and bonked his head on the showerhead. Not a pleasant way to start the day! Neither of them liked the “chopped off” appearance of their home when they approached the garage.
CREATIVE SOLUTIONS: An 8-foot addition to the second floor above the garage corrected the off-balance appearance, and gave them lots of needed space for their updated master suite. The new bathroom has a two-person shower, and two lavatories with lots of space for personal-care products. Natural-looking shower and floor tile blend beautifully with the alder cabinets and the Silestone countertops. The bedroom now has two generous walk-in closets for the husband and wife to store all of their clothing and accessories. The bedroom has a bonus sitting area for relaxed weekend coffee, reading, and conversation. This bathroom was featured in The Oregonian.
TESTIMONIAL: Diane Plesset was wonderful. She listened to our concerns, outlined what we needed, and the project went more smoothly than we ever imagined. She maintained a close relationship with us and our contractor throughout the project, and we felt like we were in great hands. Our project was large, including two additions, and complete remodel of the kitchen, family room, and our master suite. The project was completed on time and on budget, with only one change-order for a furnace that was due for replacement. She helped us to realize our dream of staying in our beautiful, contemporary, but too-small home in an idyllic neighborhood.
