Design Process

Build your custom home exactly how you want it. We will provide suggestions on smart-home design to help you think ahead to needs 5, 10, 15 years down the road. But mostly, your home in Waverly Commons is a blank-slate design collaborative between us.

Here are a few features we're implementing to make this unlike any other neighborhood in Portland:

  • Brand new custom homes designed specifically for each family
  • Design promotes walking inside the commons & out. (Close walk to Clinton & Division shops/restaurants)
  • Large central shared green space for play, gardening, gathering…
  • Plan View
  • Covered outdoor fireplace
  • Shared tool library & community garden
  • Sustainable architecture
  • Optional geothermal & solar heating
  • Preserving large mature trees
  • Forward-thinking layouts may include:
    • Open floor plans
    • 3-4 Bedrooms
    • Garage level storage
    • Upstairs laundry
    • Back yard space in addition to central commons
    • Large operable decorative fences connecting and separating backyards and commons

Sustainable Design

These homes, though traditional in spirit, are ecologically state of the art, including:

  • Energy Star appliances
  • LED lighting
  • Double-paned/argon-filled windows
  • Low VOC paints
  • High insulation levels throughout
  • Or, go beyond this with our highly trained architect/builder
