  • Ropp Garage Addition

    Ropp Garage Addition

    The owner of this project had the need to storage his boat at home. Unfortunately the existing garage was too small; hence the need to demolish it and to add a new one a bit taller and with wider doors. For the Ropp Garage Addition the owner decided to expedite the building permit himself from the Washington County Building Services in the city of Hillsboro Oregon. Building plans for the Ropp Garage Addition were drawn on March of 2015. Plans were routed to a Structural Engineer for seismic, wind-speed and beam calculations.

  • Code Violations @ SE 73rd Ave

    Code Violations @ SE 73rd Ave

    When a got the phone call for this project the owner had in mind to just add a full bath at one of the existing bedrooms at upper level. To make a long story short, the house was in violation of building codes and in order to generate the new bath, this long list of violations had to be addresed. The project was drawn up addressing the solution for all the violations and the permit was expedited on April of 2015 from the Bureau of Development Services of City of Portland.
