Terrafirma has extensive experience building single family as well as attached row houses. We are skilled at realizing an architect’s vision, participating in the design process to allow for value-conscious decisions throughout design, and ensuring green building goals are met. As you’ll read below, our clients include private families and affordable housing organizations. When the opportunity is right, we develop, build, and sell modern, high quality homes in inner NE neighborhoods.

Dykstra Residence

The Columbia River scenic area was the backdrop for this NW Prairie style residence. Stained and heated concrete floors, millwork and stairs from bleacher seats, a ledgestone fireplace and wood windows all contributed to a home that will nurture the Dykstra family for years to come.

Bennington Residence

Old World Style was the goal for this Terrafirma home for sale adjacent to the Rose garden and Arboretum in NW Portland. The location called for a well established presence. Stucco, tile mosaics, smooth walls, wood windows, wide plank oak floors, lush gardens and custom iron work resulted in a home that feels like it was there for a generation.
