PCRI performed a complete rehabilitation of this 1913 Craftsman-style house, including the addition of a second bathroom to its existing four-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath layout.

A new roof keeps the home dry, while new blown-in insulation keeps it warm (or cool, depending on the season).  New cabinetry, new low-VOC paint and updated plumbing and lighting were also added.

This 1925 bungalow in Portland’s Humboldt Neighborhood received a complete rehabilitation.  The derelict garage was demolished in the rehabilitation, leaving the concrete pad as a patio in the newly-fenced yard.

Some of the improvements to the two-bedroom, one-bath home focused on comfort and energy-efficiency: a new roof, new blown-in insulation and a new high-efficiency gas water heater.  Other improvements focused on livability: an updated floorplan for the 1,020 square-foot home provided larger closets as well as a more functional kitchen with new cabinetry.  Fresh paint inside and out as well as refinished hardwood floors featured low-VOC finishes.

PCRI completely rehabilitated this 1907 Old Portland house in the Boise Neighborhood.  The home features a large, fenced yard, three bedrooms, one bath and a full basement.

Natural settling over the years required leveling of the 1,386 square foot home.  The rehabilitation also included reconfiguring the interior to provide a more functional kitchen and more storage throughout.  Durability, comfort and efficiency were improved with a new roof, new blown-in insulation and efficient light fixtures.  Refinished wood floors and fresh paint throughout featured low-VOC finishes.  New cabinetry and plumbing rounded out the improvements.

PCRI performed a complete rehabilitation of this 1904 Dutch Colonial-style house in the King Neighborhood.  The house, which had previously been converted to a duplex, has a two-bedroom, one-bath lower unit and a one-bedroom, one-bathroom upper unit.  The units share a basement with separate storage lockers and coin-operated washer and dryer.

In addition to reconfiguring floorplans for both units in order to better accommodate modern families, the interiors received new low-VOC paint and wood floor finishes, new cabinets, plumbing and light fixtures.  On the exterior, existing vinyl siding was removed and the existing wood lap siding was restored.  New fences were added to provide privacy and security for the yard.
