We worked with LJ and Blair Nicholas, owners of LucidWild Estate, to renovate the estate’s residence and provide them with an exceptional home overlooking their beautiful 35 acre vineyard and the rolling Dundee Hills. LucidWild Estate is a family owned and operated winery in the heart of Oregon wine country, a shining example of the diversity and hard work that makes Oregon wine country one of the most prominent wine regions in the country.

This renovation involved a complete remodel of the existing tasting room and residence, beginning with demolition. Most of the walls were removed, leaving only the necessary structural foundations. On top of building the residence essentially from the ground up, we also built a two-story addition of a garage with a master suite above.

The owners chose real, high-quality wood for much of the project, from thermory ash for the deck and siding, a hemlock ceiling, and soffits flooring. They were also very happy with the concrete work we did, giving the residence a nicely rustic and textured floor.

Given the overall complexity and nuance of this residence’s design, this construction was a true accomplishment, achieved thanks to the hard work of all our team members and subcontractors who worked on this project.

This elegant home was completely renovated from top down including an original garage conversion into a cozy ADU. The homeowners worked with our design team to open the space while prioritizing access to the beautiful vineyard views surrounding the property. The before and after shots really show the transformation where the design kept the original bones of the home but with a face lift.

This was a true design+build project completed in the Oregon Wine Country.

On what appeared to be an unbuildable lot, we worked with our client to create a house that fits into the hillside while opening views down the coastline. A northwest contemporary home where each floor maximizes the view while embedding into the slope of the natural terrain, creating a comfortable retreat house. Our client had a dream that we helped make possible.
