  • 28th Remodel

    28th Remodel

    To make a long story short, The 28th Remodel Project was initially designed by another draftsman who "disappeared" when revisions to his plan's package were requested by the Bureau of Development Services of the City of Portland. Initially the project consisted of adding a dormer on the rear of the existing structure; the dormer was to add a bath. The checksheet(revisions) from city of Portland prompted the need of addressing existing structural issues and the need to change the building permit application status from converted to unconverted since no records of former work was previously recorded. In other words, the upper area, including the existing dormer at front, were unpermitted and needed to be brought up to current code. Our new plan's package was designed on March of 2016 and immediately routed to a structural engineer for calculations. The new plan's package was resubmitted to the city for revisions and approved for construction on June of 2016.

Home building plans for this project consisted of drafting the necessary construction documents for the home owner to expedite the permits himself at the City of Longview WA Building Permit Services.

On the upper level, the new attic trusses generate an unfinished attic space and two dormers. The existing kitchen was used as access to the new structure.
