Lake Oswego New Build: Phase 2

Starting to come together…

Last week we took you through the preliminary design process, the part where moving a wall requires an eraser, rather than a sledgehammer.  This week it all starts to become real.  Our amazing team of contractors have been working so hard to get this house together and their efforts can finally be appreciated as we walk though this home in construction.

A big, open house like this one is such an amazing blank canvas to work with.  We’ve chosen a soft palette with light yellows, sage green, beautiful white and gray marble throughout, crisp, white trim, and creamy soft carpet.  A dark hardwood flooring throughout the first floor will set the stage for our muted palette to pop.

Two Story House Under Construction With Scaffolding

Lighting is such an important mood-setter, especially in this home.  We’ve chosen an array of polished nickel light fixtures to add sparkle.  Hanging from the two-story vaulted foyer is one of the most impressive chandeliers I’ve ever seen with 90 crystal-clear prisms on two circular tiers.  The big reveal is sure to be full of drama!

From the foyer, the house opens up into an impressive, light-filled, two-story great room with dark hardwood floors, and an upper balcony.

Interior Stairway Under Construction

Moving into the master bathroom, we have created a marble-covered oasis with a walk-in shower, free-standing tub, two vanities, and a walk-in closet.  This gorgeous spa-like bathroom will be bathed in tons of natural light from its three windows.

Stay tuned for next week’s big reveal of the finished home in all its glory!
