Design is personal and at the center of all home construction & renovation. Whether we are helping choose colors or how to best use space to make it more livable, potential clients often ask, “Do you do modern, traditional, upscale, budget-minded, bungalow, prairie, interior design, facades, commercial?” “Can you give me more for less?”



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!


The Core Principles of Architecture


The core principles of architecture have remained intact for thousands of years and are inseparable elements in our architectural endeavors. The work should delight and raise spirits. The work should be robust and the work should be useful and function well for the people using it.

The Multnomah Villager


Designed to "fit the neighborhood", we borrowed architectural cues from traditional bungalows to adorn a modern, space-efficient, 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath floor plan. Maximizing usable space, minimizing cost by adapting to site constraints is our forte. With a 40' deep garage (4-car garage), this space can also be a traditional 2 car garage with a large shop.

Upscale Design


The owners of this country home were tired of the pervasive Craftsman influence. They wanted something “unique” for their five-acre property. This home’s architecture has a French Provincial influence while having a highly livable modern floor plan. Regularly entertaining 20+ guests, the kitchen’s double island/double sink configuration allows multiple cooks and ample room for the guests and the hosts to interact. The outdoor kitchen/dining is conveniently located adjacent to the main kitchen and the main dining. The result reflects the owners’ desire to balance luxury with affordability, utility with low maintenance.

SS Egret Interior Remodel


The owner of this home in Beaverton loved his neighborhood of 20 years, but his home was showing its age. He longed to build a contemporary home, but after many years of looking for a lot, he started to entertain ideas of remodeling. Jason Ball Interiors, LLC provided the initial design, color selection and acted as a sounding board for the owner's good taste.

Commercial Tenant Improvement


Scappoose Chiropractic Clinic Reception, we start with a concept drawing. A drawing gives you as the client and we as the contractor a starting point for a conversation. Make it less expensive? Make it grander? Make it another color? Anything is possible!
