I have been spending a lot of time on a residential lot in NE Portland along the Alameda ridge that is ripe for a house. Of course it is a hillside lot! Which of course brings with it such nice things as drama, view, fresh breezes, privacy… I have designed a 2 story 3,000 sf house that would fit well onto the lot, maximizing the light and yard space. I will put some pictures up soon when I figure out some details I’m mulling over. I’m calling it rossa because there are some abandoned rose bushes at the bottom that I regularly draw on.
Here are some current ideas for that house.
