Whole Home Remodel In Bend Oregon

We completed this 3500 square foot single story home renovation this winter.

Aside from the floors having random humps (due to floor joist being 4′ on center) it had good bones.  As you can probably guess we started to address that once everything was pretty much demoed.  We installed some posts, beams and cross members to get the subfloor flat again.

Once we had a flat surface to work with we started the framing and rough-ins.  As we started that, we found a several wires that were spliced in the walls without junction boxes.  To improve the safety of the house and bring it up to code we ran a ton of new electrical.  As we started to move locations of some of the plumbing we found that much of that had to be corrected as well.  Ourselves and the homeowners are happy knowing that the plumbing and electrical are fixed and in safe working order.



The overall floor plan in this home was decent, but had room for improvement. We moved things around in the master suite to make it more functional. The result was a huge master bath which now includes an elegant soaking tub, large shower and open walk-in closet. DCR designed and installed a new propane fireplace with a cement chase.  To add even more glamor, we built a custom barn door from solid pieces of oak.


We completely gutted the kitchen; installed new cabinets, countertops, lighting, appliances, everything! Thanks to Cement Elegance who put in a beautiful cement island top with a waterfall on each side.


The living room didn’t need much aside from paint, flooring and some new lighting.  We stained the existing box beams with a black gel stain to make them more contemporary.  They originally had a magenta wood hue that was probably popular in the 90’s.  We also replaced the wood stove with a contemporary one and swapped out the brick hearth and rear panel with smooth cement.


My favorite part of this renovation was updating the old guest quarters/kitchenette.  DCR turned that into what is now called the Bourbon Room.  We kept the original wood paneling on the ceiling and added more of it to the walls.  We replaced cabinets, countertops, appliances, lighting, etc.  With 2″ pine planks from Levi’s Sawmill we crafted the shelving.  Every shelf includes led strip lights that we recessed into the wood.


Aside from the master, DCR also renovated three other bathrooms from top to bottom.
