Both our homes are in Northwest Crossing, on Fields Street and Discovery Park.
Curtis Homes is excited to announce the completion of a home in NorthWest Crossing in Bend, Oregon. Curtis Homes will have two homes on the popular Bend Home tour, the tour is put on by the Central Oregon Builder Association or COBA.
This modern-prairie style home was a fun project for us (Emily and Cameron), because we chose the finishes for the large three-story home. The vision for the house was to create a sleek, modern space and to highlight the beautiful symmetry in the home! The 2,500+ sq ft house has four bedrooms, three and half baths and open main-level living. The home is warm, thank you warm-toned wood floors, and the full of natural light, thank you Ply Gem upper windows.

In effort to continue our commitment to building homes that will last and be a legacy for families to live in; we are now an Energy Trust of Oregon certified builder.
This is a home in the Mt. View neighborhood on the Heights of Hood River, Oregon. This is the first EPS Certified home in Hood River. We are using a blow in BIBS system to increase the R-Value in the walls and create a better air seal and tighter home. We also used advance framing techniques to reduce air leakage and increase efficiency. We will share more in the future about the mechanical unit and water heater that will set this home apart in the community. At Curtis Homes we strive be participating in building homes that will be sustainable and energy efficient.
Cameron and Emily Curtis are happy to announce that Curtis Homes is expanding to Bend, Oregon! Our home-base and office will remain in Hood River, Oregon where we are currently busy building in the Mountain Vistas community along with developments of our own Goose Way Townhouses Subdivision and Rocky Road Subdivision. In preparation for our expansion into Central Oregon, we are pleased to announce that Jeremy Fields has been added to the Curtis Homes team as our Project Manager. Jeremy has been working closely with our Hood River team and is excited to get started on our first project in Central Oregon which will be the construction of two homes in the NorthWest Crossing Neighborhood in west Bend. These two beautiful homes, designed by Muddy River, will be on the Central Oregon Builders Association (COBA) tour in late July 2017.
Our whole team is excited to grow into a new community, while continuing to invest into the Hood River community we love!
With the sub freezing temperatures all your mechanical devices get put to the test. It is very important to make sure snow and ice don’t form around your condensate drains. Your furnace and your water heater both have a vent and condensate drain. If snow piles up in front of this or if your condensation freezes then it will prevent these units from working properly. Your home builder warranty does not cover adverses weather conditions and it is important to make sure these vents and drains are clear and do not freeze.
These are recommendations, to consider with the amount of snow the Columbia Gorge has had, and with the warm weather we are excepting, along with the rain it is very important that homeowners consider how this weather could potential affect their home.
Curtis Homes wants to see your home meet its full potential and taking these few steps can really help in these severe weather. If you need help at all with any of these items please don’t hesitate to call our office. Our crew is available for snow removal and or assistance with any of these items if you would like help please feel free to email or call me to schedule.
It is fall time in Hood River, the leaves are swirling about each Hood River-ite as we walk down our small town sidewalks. Fall time is full of changing weather, harvested fruit, cold noses and warm hot coco. Thanksgiving may be our family’s favorite holiday! The holiday sneaks in before the bustle of Christmas and is full of family, color, and fall food.
The Curtis Family would like to say thank you to our community, neighbors and friends. We’re grateful for the families who choose to build with Curtis Homes, grateful for the opportunity to craft beautiful houses for fantastic families, and grateful to give people a place in this spectacular Columbia River Gorge to call their own. However you spend this fall season, take time to be thankful.

Thad, Curtis Homes Project Manager, has been busy in the shop building a Little Free Library to put on Goose Way (off of May Street) in Hood River. There are many of these stand alone libraries in Hood River built by local High School students. These libraries promote reading, sharing and add character to our local neighborhoods. The idea is you take a book from the little library and replace it with a book of your own. Look for more pictures of the finished library on our Instagram or Facebook pages.
