Street of Dreams 2015 Wrap up

If you missed out on this year's NW Natural Street of Dreams don't fret, we've got you covered. Our portfolio is filled with amazing images of both GHID houses; The Adeline and Sandhill Crane. So feel free to tour these beautiful homes from the comfort of your own home. Perhaps you'll get some ideas for your own home or decide it's time to finally start on that remodel project. 

The Adeline

Tradition is not synonymous with boring. The Adeline, named after a style of steel casting used in the Lake Oswego Foundry at the turn of the century, is a traditional style home featuring timeless features. Much like steel, the house will be known for its strong and lasting qualities. The main level of the home has a flow that is open and inviting. The use of space continues outside onto the large patios perfect for entertaining.

Sandhill Crane

Much like the Sandhill Crane, which can be found in the neighboring Tyron Creek State Park, this house proudly shows off its distinguishing features, its look is sleek, yet the wing-like roof has an impressive span. The exterior features a mix of materials, clean lines, and multiple patios. The contemporary interior makes use of natural light pouring in from large windows into the open kitchen. The living room, which features a modern linear gas fireplace, is perfect for entertaining. An additional full suite is located on the first floor providing for multi-generational living.
