2012 Portland Home Tour
Just toured the Portland Street of Dreams homes today and enjoyed seeing the new materials being used. All the homes are over 4,000 sq ft. I took photos and after seeing them wished I'd taken more. I got caught up in looking at details and thought I'd taken pics of them!
Things I noticed:
Use of porcelain tile everywhere
Sandblasted granite...textured, polished surface.
Lots of stacked stone
Mix of woods used in kitchen and bath.
Espresso machines are out and beer making is in
Builders seem to forget we need niches, shelves and benches in showers.
Most homes used wood with simple lines (no design) for baseboard and trim.
Also saw the use of beautiful ceiling fans in bedrooms.
