Skinny houses – Portland’s houses on a diet

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.

Sometimes, from a financial standpoint, it doesn't make sense to remodel. The previous house was small, old, and located at the rear of the lot. Rather than throw good money after bad, the owner decided to start from scratch. We guided the owner through the land division, street improvement and new construction permitting processes.

Portland Urban Living

This type of house is unique to Portland where density to preserve farmland and nature outside the city is highly valued. Yes, they look a bit odd, but they do grow on you! Inside are three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a powder, a laundry room. Outside is a fenced yard with enough room to play but not so much that you can’t get away for the weekend.
