Behind the Scenes: New Custom Home in Port Angeles

Posted on August 29, 2018 by Kevin Estes

When the Taylors decided to retire and build a custom home in Port Angeles, WA they had a simple formula for finding the perfect lot. “Aim for the mountains.” As retirees who wanted to escape the traffic and congestion of the city, the Taylors had a vision for a home in a quiet spot that maximized views of the mountains.

The Taylors came to us late last year and worked with our team to design and build their new custom home in Port Angeles. Read more about their experience below.


Our Fixed Price Guarantee took all of the guesswork out of building the Taylor home with all of the costs outlined upfront. “We knew upfront what everything would cost,” said Mrs. Taylor. “Doing it that way takes away all the anxieties and fears of building your home.”


The Taylors came to us with a general idea of the home they wanted to build. Using photos of their current home, they worked with our in-house architect to make “significant improvements” from the design of their existing home to an updated version that was a better fit for their new, more relaxed lifestyle. The Taylors worked with our team to design a 2 bedroom, 3 bath home with his and her offices and 2,100 square feet of living space. The home includes transom windows that add lots of natural light and a double-sided fireplace that adds warmth and coziness to the living room and office. The home also includes a mud room with a dog wash area to clean off furry feet after hiking (one of the Taylors’ favorite activities).
