Kitchen Remodeling

2021-03-18T14:11:03+00:00

Kitchen Remodeling is one of the most stressful types of remodeling. To minimize the negative impact on you and your family, we believe in minimizing the time spent in your house. We work together with you to nail down all aspects of design, product selection and ordering. We finalize the contracts, the quantities needed and place the orders for the materials. What then? We wait. We wait for the cabinets to be built. We wait for them to and the other needed materials to be shipped. We receive your cabinets, sinks, faucets and lights to our warehouse and examine the boxes and contents for signs of damage.

Design/Build

2020-10-21T00:40:34+00:00

There are some builders who will throw any price at you, some will guess low to keep the conversation going; some will have a more accurate quote knowing what caliber of construction is expected in a certain area and by asking a few more questions. Some contractors are more honest than others. Even the best-intentioned individual can not anticipate just how many semi-custom touches you will want to include when it's all said and done. At Capital Builders we like to begin with the end in mind. Let us know your budget and we can help you make the best decisions to make your new home a reality!

Bathroom Remodel

2020-11-03T18:22:56+00:00

The average bathroom remodel costs between $8,000 and $15,000 depending on the scope. Our most expensive bathroom to date featured a floating walnut double vanity, heated floors, glass tile full-wall backsplash, a trench drain shower room surrounding a tub filled by a spout from the ceiling with teak accents.

Skinny houses – Portland’s houses on a diet

2020-10-21T00:42:52+00:00

Portland style shotgun homes or skinny houses add density to Portland and limit sprawl. While Portland may have traffic jams, Portland traffic is still far better than what is seen these days in L.A. These skinny homes are part of the reason that we see Portland maintaining its svelte figure. They live large on the inside with minimal care on the outside, ideal for a busy modern lifestyle. Once inside, home owners see no difference between their homes and other homes on the block because all room sizes are standard. There are other advantages, too! With smaller lots, the monthly payment is lower.

Slopes and Cross Slopes

2020-10-21T01:17:47+00:00

Slope in one direction is relatively easy to address, but a lot with cross-slope presents additional challenges. There are some pretty sizable extra expenses that come from extra excavation, extra framing to fur walls inside tall foundation, walls which act to retain dirt on the outside, wider window and door trim material, extra retaining walls to create some flat outdoor living space.

Scappoose, Custom Prairie Shell

2020-10-21T00:45:50+00:00

This custom shell we designed Prairie-style to fit the owners’ particular lot and needs.

The lot was one of the more difficult lots in the area with slope and cross slope, but the owners had gotten a great deal to offset the cost of the design. We started construction in late October, alternating our work with the owners’ work or sometimes working concurrently. We did foundation, framing, insulation, siding, […]

Houseboat Repairs – Bathrooms and More

2020-10-21T00:48:48+00:00

My first experience with houseboats was 25 years ago when my parents bought a framed shell of a house with windows and a metal roof on a concrete float.  Since helping them with their build-out, we have done numerous houseboat renovations and repairs from window replacement to standing seam roof installation to renovations of kitchens and bathroom to swim float resurfacing.  Last year, we even demolished a houseboat […]
