Small Town Charm, Big City Attractions

Sometimes, history repeats itself, and this time– it’s for the better. Think back: What was your most coveted childhood memory? Was it riding your banana-seat bike to the store to buy chocolate milk? Or, was it going to the movie theater every Saturday, funded by money you made from delivering newspapers?  Could it have been baking in the kitchen with your grandma, trying not to lick the whole bowl of cookie batter from the mixer? It’s easy to bring these memories back into the present, per an address within Renaissance’s Roger’s Farm community near downtown Milwaukie.  Downtown Milwaukie is just a short drive or bike ride east of this community, and boasts one of the most charming downtown areas in the area. Main Street is the hub of yesteryear’s thrills, with a new modern twist.  Seeing a movie, for instance, is a whole new experience at the Wunderland Milwaukie Cinemas. Not only can you see your favorite new releases on a high definition screen, there’s also games, and lots of ‘em: ski ball, arcades, and old-fashioned plush crane machines, to name a few.   Prices for movie tickets also have an old-timey vibe at $3.00 per ticket. Add just a dollar for 3D. If one of your favorite childhood recollections included creating masterpieces in the kitchen, you’re in luck. Baking your favorite foods just got easier, as Bob’s Red Mill is just a short drive east of Roger’s Farm. Bob’s Red Mill boasts an entire factory store that’s stocked with baking and cooking ingredients, all made locally at the Bob’s Red Mill factory. Bob’s represents unsurpassed product quality, and uses only superior grains and sugars. If you loved riding your bike as a kid (and still do!) you’ll be happy to hear Milwaukie’s riverfront promenade opens May 1. The revamped,...

Building Trends in the New Modern World

“The physician can bury his mistakes, but the architect can only advise his clients to plant vines.” —Frank Lloyd Wright     Organic designs, clean lines and natural wood are the primary aspects of design Frank Lloyd Wright envisioned for his influential “prairie school” style.  Though Wright’s style encompassed commercial buildings, his architectural design in residential homes are what made this style so coveted. Spanning from the late 1890’s, the prairie school style, with low-pitched roof and minimalistic style, not only changed the way design is created, but the way we perceive it. Form follows function in this alternative to the then-dominate Classical Revival Style, bringing in indigenous materials and simple lines. When looking for these specific home features in your next masterpiece, it won’t take you long to realize how the Renaissance design team stays true to Frank Lloyd Wright’s style. The Renaissance home at 5021 NE 26th Ave in Portland is a breathtaking example of an urban, prairie style home with a grid-based design. The home’s windows are long and low and invite the interior space to mix with the surrounding nature, while modern exterior and interior colors draw from organic hues. Although this style was once short-lived, loosing popularity in the 1920’s, the structures built to this design remain today as among the most desired. The nearly quarter of a century full of constructing prairie-centric styles have propelled modern architecture to new (un) heights (pun...

Portsmouth Neighborhood Eats

Cha Cha Cha Taqueria has become a Portland classic. With its colorful walls and captivating dishes, Cha Cha Cha is an easy lunch or dinner decision for family or friends. The family-owned, locally-sourced restaurant has eight locations in Portland, and all are equally delicious. Their seasonal margaritas are savor-worthy and are a perfect dinner treat. One of Cha Cha Cha’s locations is within walking distance to Renaissance’s modern stunner at 4748 N Hunt St. We’ll have this home open in a few weeks for the Ultimate New Home Showcase, a Portland-area home show the last weekend of April and the first weekend of May. The Renaissance crew will likely grab some Mexican fare before heading over for the UNHS festivities. If you’re looking for a nearby brunch spot while you’re on the tour, we’ve got you covered. Christie’s Restaurant is also within walking distance of the home on N Hunt St. It’s a definite neighborhood favorite, serving American-style breakfasts, tasty salads and an array of substantial sandwiches with local ingredients. Christie’s serve TAZO tea, as well as Nossa Familia Coffee. The entire staff is friendly and the breakfasts are fantastic. I ordered a side of thick-cut bacon for a fast, to-go breakfast. I would come back just for another slice. One of Christie’s personal favorites includes the toffee bark breakfast. Intrigued? Good. It involves two challah loaf slices drizzled with house made toffee sauce, chocolate ganache and Oregon hazelnuts. It’s served with two eggs and bacon. As the weather warms up, Christie’s outdoor patio would be a perfect afternoon getaway. Until then, the interior space is warm and relaxing, and is peppered with murals by local artists.

Coffee Grinds, Community at The Arbor Lodge

      The founder’s vision for The Arbor Lodge was to be both a community gathering place and a world-class coffee shop; a spot for friends, reading groups, neighborhood get-togethers, and foodies alike to enjoy Pacific Northwest artisan coffee.  Founded in 2011 by Arbor Lodge residents Scott and Jolynn Davison, the strong vision for The Arbor Lodge materialized into a woodsy, airy and delicious smelling space. Weekly meetings for book studies and writing groups are held in the spacious belly of the cafe, and local art decorates the tall walls of the shop. A life-size community calendar is near the drink pick-up, with more than a dozen community events. I stopped in after touring Renaissance’s nearby bungalows, and ordered a light breakfast: green jasmine tea and the café mocha muffin. The café mocha muffin truly tasted as good as it looked from the assortment of treats behind the bar. It was out-of-the-oven fresh, decadent and not too sweet. Most of the muffins and treats are gluten free and vegan-friendly. As for the tea – it was fragrant, smooth and packed with anti-oxidants. It’s safe to say I’ll be back for a tasty breakfast soon, along with the many patrons who call The Arbor Lodge a second home.The Arbor Lodge serves Taniger Coffee FOXFIRE Tea, and sources treats from Nuvrei Pastries.

Last week Renaissance Homes teamed up with KOIN 6 to produce two commercials featuring our beautiful, waterfront homes at the Boat Club in Wilsonville. It was an afternoon filled with memorizing lines, finding the perfect angle, prepping our gorgeous model home, and soaking up the sun while filming down at the Boat Club’s private dock. Randy took to the spotlight like a total natural, delivering lines perfect the first time around, which shed light on how much passion and care he has towards this new development. Our production team was a complete breeze to work with and their professionalism and forward thinking proved what pros we were working alongside.  Needless to say, we think the commercials are a complete success. Check out our commercial below and, of course, stop by in person to see what a luxury waterfront lifestyle the Boat Club has to offer.        ...

Can you spell “team-building”?

Renaissance Homes loves to build more than beautiful homes, we also love building a strong team. When there are so many elements that go into your beautiful new home—purchasing land, designing floorplans and interiors, construction, and selling the home—it is important that we work together and communicate as a team. That being said, what better way to have team bonding than a competitive and fun scrabble night in one of our stunning model homes, the Century at Wilsonville Boat Club! Your Renaissance Team put on our game faces and had quite the match-off in a high intensity game of Blitz Scrabble. A midst playful banter and healthy competition, we all embraced our inner Spelling Bee Champs and got our spelling on.  While there was one team that was victorious (even if a few words were questionable as to whether or not they were Webster Dictionary approved) it is easy to say that we all won that night; laughing and getting to know coworkers takes the cake of prizes. To us, it is important to not just build a home, but to enjoy ourselves the whole time.  The best work comes from individuals driven by passion and a love towards what they do and who they do it with. We hope that when you first walk into your new home you feel the same joy that we have had creating it, as a team, for you. Cheers from your Scrabble-bonding Renaissance...

Love Where You Live : Alameda & Beaumont-Wilshire Spotlight

        Finding a new home that you love is a gratifying and exciting adventure. While adoring the home itself is a huge priority, finding a neighborhood that is also the right fit is just as important. Our two homes—a Prescott Foursquare located at 3955 NE 34th Ave and a Benson Foursquare (seen pictured) located at 3160 NE Alameda Street –have the perfect mix of charming home and neighborhood. Check out some neighborhood highlights below:     Wilshire Park | NE 33rd Ave & Skidmore St | Acreage: 14.40 | Acquired in 1940 Just a few blocks away from our new homes is Wilshire Park, which offers a full range of amenities including covered & uncovered picnic areas, an off-leash dog park, horseshoe pits, a playground, soccer & softball fields, a volleyball court, and many wandering paths to walk. In the summertime Wilshire Park takes part in “Movies in the Park”, a family-friendly evening event that includes live-music, possible food carts, and a large outdoor screening of a featured film that starts at dusk. Make sure to pack a blanket and some snacks while you enjoy the summer breeze and a fun flick.     Fire and Stone | 3707 NE Fremont Ave. | 503-719-7195 | M-F 7AM-9PM, Weekends 8AM-10PM This newly renovated wood-fired pizzeria and bakery has a rich history in the Portland neighborhood, which is a common trend in this culture-rich neighborhood.

Two New Starts at Renaissance Boat Club

We’re doing what we do best at Renaissance Boat Club: building excellent homes! There’s so much activity going on at our premier Wilsonville site, as our Construction Manager Ryan Miller just started two new homes, in addition to our newly-completed model home. We’re building the Bertram Seaboard Floor Plan on Homesite 2 and Admiral Riverside on Homesite 25, and are thrilled to be breaking ground on these two fabulous lots. The Bertram Seaboard’s floor plan is comforting, cozy and effortless. Functionality meets beauty in the airy and uncluttered design. We just started framing, and will continue on with plumbing at the end of this month. The home is on schedule to be completed mid-March. We can’t wait to see the finished product.  This home borders Wilsonville Memorial Park, a 126 acre mecca of outdoor activities and serene walking paths. Memorial Park is also home to two very popular features:  the City’s only off-leash dog area and its’ community garden. The Admiral Riverside on Homesite 25 backs up to the spring fed artisan pond, a wonderful setting within the neighborhood. The layout expertly combines formal spaces and private family spaces with ease. Abounding in natural light and displaying a variety of materials, each room of the house inspires an overall cozy feel. The backyard covered living area is the perfect space to watch the wildlife in the pond as you enjoy your morning cup of coffee. We just began the framing process, and will continue with plumbing into the New Year. This home is scheduled to be move-in ready at the end of March! If you haven’t been to see our Boat Club model home, now is the perfect time. Our Director of Design Lynnette Sandgren designed the 3,896 square-foot, Century Seaboard-style home with Cape Cod features and bright, sophisticated colors....

How to properly cook a turkey – a users guide!

No Thanksgiving guest is more important than the turkey. But you might have a late arrival on your hands if you don’t get it in the oven on time. Planning a 3 p.m. meal? You’ll need to have a 20-pound bird (sans stuffing) cooking by around 10:30 a.m. Don’t stress about the math—just follow our easy chart, with recommendations from the USDA. Note: For safety reasons, the USDA recommends cooking stuffing outside of the turkey to guarantee uniform doneness. If you do choose to stuff it, check the temp of the center of the stuffing to make sure it, too, reaches the safe 165 degrees F (otherwise bacteria could contaminate your cooked turkey). Keep wet stuffing ingredients refrigerated ahead of time, and separate from dry ingredients until just before mixing, stuffing loosely and cooking. Sticking with a casserole dish? You should still cook the stuffing to 165 degrees F. Fresh or Frozen? Fresh Turkeys •Allow 1 pound of turkey per person. •Buy your turkey only 1 to 2 days before you plan to cook it. •Keep it stored in the refrigerator until you’re ready to cook it. Place it on a tray or in a pan to catch any juices that may leak. •Do not buy fresh pre-stuffed turkeys. If not handled properly, any harmful bacteria that may be in the stuffing can multiply very quickly. Frozen Turkeys •Allow 1 pound of turkey per person. •Keep frozen until you’re ready to thaw it. •Turkeys can be kept frozen in the freezer indefinitely; however, cook within 1 year for best quality. •See “Thawing Your Turkey” for thawing instructions. Frozen Pre-Stuffed Turkeys USDA recommends only buying frozen pre-stuffed turkeys that display the USDA or State mark of inspection on the packaging. These turkeys are safe because they have been processed under...

Pumpkins are a welcome surprise at local elementary school

Renaissance real estate agents Jack Hall and Leslee Lahey had a blast donating more than 90 pumpkins to Byrom Elementary School in Tualatin just before Halloween.

Construction Corner | Benefits of Polar Blanket Insulation

Fiberglass Blown-in Insulation Systems, also known as the Polar Blanket, is one of the latest green building techniques used by Renaissance Homes. This system improves a home’s efficiency by filling the wall cavity completely, including the areas around pipes, cables and outlets. Polar Blanket gets into all the voids where traditional insulation can’t protect, creating a “blanket” of insulation and making a more energy efficient home. The Polar Blanket decreases air going through the wall cavity as it is applied as a dense pack application. The R-Value of polar Blanket is 23 and significantly helps reduce monthly utility costs by reducing air infiltration through the cavity walls. Renaissance Homes believes the Polar Blanket is one of the most important factors in energy efficiency and has allowed us to reduce monthly utility bills for gas and electric to $70 – $125 a month (without solar), depending upon size of the house. You can read more about Energy Performance Scores here and at our construction blog. Find out more about the benefits of Polar Blanket insulation by visiting us at one of our neighborhoods for a demonstration. Renaissance Homes is an award winning Street of Dreams custom home builder specializing in green building, remodeling and renovations for the Portland market.

Contemporary finishes take center stage

The Renaissance Homes Design Studio offers interior and exterior selections catering to many different popular home styles. But contemporary finishes and features are currently taking center stage with more and more customers asking for a refreshing, sleek look at home design. Whether it’s refining millwork, minimizing ornamentation or incorporating linear or large scale tiles, there are many subtleties that embrace contemporary home style for today’s busy, yet minimalist lifestyles. “Many homeowners are embracing strong architectural lines, low pile carpeting, large scale hardware, metal accents and chrome,” said Renaissance Homes’ Director of Design, Lynnette Sandgren. “Mixing classic elements into a more contemporary design is very fun,” she continued. “For example, your kitchen could have flat cabinetry doors and still utilize a farm sink.” Contemporary home architecture can meld historic elements with current lifestyle concepts, resulting in a home that is connected to nature, warm and inviting and easy to live in. According to Realtor.com, contemporary home architecture can include: An irregular, asymmetrical facade Strong, geometric shapes Large windows, often tall and seemingly randomly placed in the facade Clerestory windows One or two stories A distinctive roofline usually with wide overhanging eaves Natural, often local, building materials Sustainable, eco-friendly flooring and countertop materials Extensive use of natural light Open floorplans Flexible layout to adapt to changes in family needs Green heating, air-conditioning and plumbing systems to conserve energy Solar energy systems. Solar savings: In partnership with Solar City, Renaissance Homes is proud to offer its customers the option to incorporate a solar system to create further energy savings. Tile layouts: Contemporary touches can come in pattern layouts, as well. For example, by simply installing tiles in a straight set – lined up, as opposed to the traditional brick set – sophisticated lines are created in a bathroom shower, bathtub surround or...

Welcome home to Renaissance at Grandview

Located just off Salamo Road in West Linn and taking advantage of commanding views, the 11 new homes at Renaissance at Grandview have a clean and strong presence that transitions from outdoors to indoors seamlessly. The green-built homes – beginning construction in winter 2014 – will take a nod from classic buildings in a prairie style – showcasing exposed, natural materials and free-flowing spaces.

Inside, expansive entertaining areas combine functionality and beauty. Understated material choices, earth colors and an abundance of glass welcome in West Linn’s beauty and provide for tranquil downtime.

Happy retirement, Dennis McCrea, from your friends at Renaissance

Construction Manager Dennis McCrea retired this week from Renaissance Homes.  After a long history with the company – dating back to 1987 when he started framing our houses – Dennis has been instrumental to our growing company.   “Dennis has been a dedicated and loyal employee and friend for many, many years.  We are sad to see him go but, are confident he will enjoy the stress-free days of retirement,” said Clark Dunning, Renaissance’s Director of Production. At a company retirement party on Oct. 28, Dunning and other employees told stories of notable memories with Dennis – on the job site (sometimes in a rain storm) and while figuring out complicated cabinet layouts and large Street of Dreams showstoppers. Starting production on Vintage style homes in Portland proper – often with dug out basements – brought a big smile across Dennis’ face. “Those can be challenging,” he said, “but I like a challenge.” Dennis’ calm demeanor and helpful attitude wove like a thread through all of the speeches. When asked, Dennis said that building the 2003 Street of Dreams home “Nature’s Door” was one of his favorite projects. The Renaissance home featured an exquisite outdoor covered pool, well-appointed wine cellar, sun room and game room complete with a bar and big screen projector TV. He also had fond memories of the 2001 Street of Dreams award-winner, “The Big Easy” — complete with a motorcycle display room, home theater, curved extravagant staircase and cascading waterfalls. While Renaissance is saddened to see someone with Dennis’ work experience, great attitude and knowledge go, we’re all better builders for having learned from him. “I’ve always felt a sense of pride working for Renaissance,” Dennis said. “It’s something I’m very proud of.” Renaissance Homes is an award winning Street of Dreams builder specializing in green building for the Portland...

You’d Been Booed — share the Halloween spirit this week

Looking for a little easy Halloween fun? Try Booing someone! It’s quick, it’s easy and it spreads good cheer throughout the neighborhood. Booing someone simply means ding-dong ditching them with a Halloween surprise — basket of candy or other treats — and then asking them to pass the tradition on. Two easy, printable signs make this game fun. In your Boo Bucket, include a sign that says “We’ve Been Boo’ed” so the family can post it on their door, telling others that they’ve already received Halloween treats. Once you are Booed, it’s your turn to Boo another neighbor by leaving some treats and a sign that says “You’ve Been Boo’ed.” Place a sign on your own front door that says “We’ve Been Booed” to alert neighbors to skip you and get another family involved instead. You’ll have a blast watching all of the funny Boo signs popping up on neighbor’s doors. (And who doesn’t love Halloween treats?)   Click here to print the free, printable You’ve Been Booed Tags and We’ve Been Booed Tags. And have a wonderful Halloween week from Renaissance Homes.

EPS offers a clear view of home energy performance

In the market for a home that saves? Say hello to EPSTM. Brought to you by Energy Trust of Oregon, EPS is an energy performance score that helps smart homebuyers find equally smart homes – the kind that offer superior efficiency, comfort and savings. EPS lets you look behind the walls to see the true energy impact of a home. It reveals the estimated monthly and annual energy costs, the environmental impact, and it highlights specific energy-efficient features. EPS allows you to see the benefits of these homes more clearly, and even offers a side-by-side comparison of how each home’s energy score stacks up against similar-sized homes in Oregon. To receive an EPS, a home must be built to meet specific efficiency requirements. Keep in mind, with EPS the lower the score the better. Builders incorporate a range of energy-efficient solutions to qualify their homes for a score. Common features include improved insulation, tighter construction, efficient heating and cooling and, in some instances, solar energy systems. As the market for energy-efficient homes steadily increases, it’s important to be able to quantify their energy performance. EPS provides this ability, which makes it an incredibly valuable tool both for builders and buyers. How can you find an EPS home? It’s becoming easier and easier. In 2012, more than 1300 newly built homes received an energy score in Oregon. Talk to your real estate agent or builder about EPS, and be sure to look for EPS on home tours in your area. For more information about EPS, visit www.energytrust.org/eps or call 1.866.368.7878.

5 Housing Trends For Fall 2014

It’s not a bad time to be a homebuyer. Just don’t think the odds will be on your side indefinitely. Mortgage standards, such as credit score requirements, have started to loosen, and mortgage rates remain low. Although it is a seller’s market in many parts of the country, many sellers realize that today’s buyers are more conservative and will not overpay. Still, if you are planning to buy, act quickly. The housing market is expected to heat up in coming months and rates will eventually rise — believe it or not. Here are five housing trends you should expect to see this Fall. Mortgages with lower credit scores. You may have heard that it’s hard to get a mortgage unless you have perfect credit. But in reality, lenders seem to be loosening their credit standards. The average credit score for mortgages that closed in August was 727, according to Ellie Mae’s latest origination insight report. That’s still a high score, but it’s much lower than the 750 average seen a couple years ago. For mortgages that closed in August 2013, the average credit score was 734. For loans backed by the Federal Housing Administration, or FHA loans, the average score of loans closed in August was 682. It was 697 in April 2013. Buyers seek more affordable markets If you think buyers aren’t willing to move out of their comfort zones to live in more affordable housing markets, you may want to reconsider. Many buyers, especially the younger generation, are relocating to areas that didn’t seem as appealing before, but now they are prioritizing affordability, says Daren Blomquist, vice president for RealtyTrac, a real estate data company in Irvine, California. More conservative buyers Buyers, especially millennials, have been conservative with their spending, says Pava Leyrer, director of training for...

Thank you to Sunday Parkways – we enjoyed sponsoring the summer events

Renaissance Homes was thrilled to be a sponsor of Sunday Parkways this year. Beginning in May, the monthly community event held on a Sunday was an enjoyable success for the Renaissance team. Presented by Kaiser Permanente, the yearly Sunday Parkways events foster the community by blocking off roads in a safe six to nine mile loop so attendees can safely bike ride or walk through the streets. This year’s routes took place in East Portland, North Portland, NE Portland, SE Portland and SW Portland. Seeing the thousands of friends and families participating in physical activity and chatting at booths along the route, like ours, was enjoyable. The weather was great and our staff enjoyed decorating bikes and talking to visitors about our new, LEED-certified homes. We were also impressed by the great showing of food vendors, games, entertainment, fitness classes and demonstrations along each route and its surrounding parks. According to Sunday Parkways organizer Linda Ginenthal, more than 109,000 people attended Sunday Parkways this year – up from last year. The events align well with the culture at Renaissance Homes. We build new homes using the latest in green technologies. And many of our homes come with a separate bike/gear room off the garage. The staff at Renaissance are active, often participating in 5K races, half marathons and marathons and always trying to beat personal goals. Renaissance President Randy Sebastian exercises each day and participates in international Ironman Triathlons – encompassing a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride followed by a 26.2 marathon all in one day. We hope everyone enjoyed the season as much as we did. It was a great time exploring the outdoors with you. For more information about Sunday Parkways, visit www.PortlandSundayParkways.org.

Mayor Hales to join Sunday Parkways in SW Portland with Renaissance

The city of Portland Sunday Parkways presented by Kaiser Permanente will host the final Sunday Parkways of the season September 28 in Southwest Portland. Mayor Charlie Hales will join with Southwest Portlanders and thousands of others to bicycle, walk, stroll, roll and dance along the six-mile round-trip route of traffic-free streets. “Sunday Parkways are a terrific opportunity to get to know a specific section of Portland. You can study maps, you can drive around, but nothing beats the feeling of pedaling through this great city.  Come join us for the last event of the season,” said Mayor Charlie Hales. Renaissance Homes will again sponsor the popular event and feature a bike decorating station at Gabriel Park. Come by to add a little pizzazz to your ride.  Hilly Southwest Portland incorporates Gabriel Park and the two vibrant business districts: Hillsdale Shopping Center and Multnomah Village. Music, vendors and activities are located in the park and marketplaces and along the route. The event is free and takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Southwest event also offers the only walkers-only route that includes 4.5 miles of streets, paths, stairs and pedestrian bridges. This walking route shows off some of the signed and marked SW Trails that weave through neighborhoods and provide important connections and shortcuts to many Southwest destinations. Last year, severe weather led to the cancellation of the Southwest Portland event, the only Sunday Parkways to be cancelled in the series’ seven-year history. This Sunday’s forecast is for mild conditions and offers a great chance to get out and enjoy the fun, healthy physical activity. Sunday Parkways is a series of free community events opening the city’s largest public space – its streets – for people to walk, bike, roll and discover active transportation. The five events of...

A Homeowner’s Net Worth is 36x Greater Than A Renter

Over the last six years, homeownership has lost some of its allure as a financial investment. As homeowners suffered through the housing bust, more and more began to question whether owning a home was truly a good way to build wealth. The Federal Reserve conducts a Survey of Consumer Finances, every three years, and just released their latest edition this past week. Some of the findings revealed in their report: The average American family has a net worth of $81,200 Of that net worth, 61.4% ($49,856) of it is in home equity A homeowner’s net worth is over 36 times greater than that of a renter The average homeowner has a net worth of $194,500 while the average net worth of a renter is $5,400 Bottom Line The Fed study found that homeownership is worth it and still a great way for a family to build wealth in America.
