Our Carpenter on Call team is getting started on a project for a home in the Sabin neighborhood in NE Portland. The goal: to restore the home’s exterior to match its original 1913 look.

That’s our project home in the back right corner. Wild, isn’t it?
We’ll be rebuilding the home’s front and back porch and replacing the asphalt shingles with wood siding that more closely matches the original exterior. A little spring facelift in time for the warmer weather!
We’ll keep you posted on how it turns out.
