Relocating to Hood River, Oregon

The Columbia River Gorge is a beautiful place, and many people want to move to the area to be a part of the local communities.  The larger towns within the Scenic Gorge area are Hood River, White Salmon, and The Dalles; smaller communities such as Cascade Locks and Mosier also add to the flavor of the Gorge.  Many consider Troutdale the entrance to the Gorge.   Here are resources from a “old” local gal for anyone planning on moving to the Gorge or interested in a second home in the area.   

Where is Hood River?

The City of Hood River parallels the Columbia River, and is nestled in the scenic Gorge region of Oregon.  Across the Hood River Bridge are the small towns of Bingen and White Salmon, Washington.  Hood River is located an hour east of Portland and the Portland Int’l Airport.  (View of Hood River)

Industries in Hood River?

Hood River is home to a diverse group of local industries ranging from technology software companies to fruit packing houses.  Tourism, healthcare, timber industry and government positions are some of the larger employers in the area.  Recreational sports draw thousands of people every year to the Columbia River Gorge, creating lots of tourism opportunities.  There are many entrepreneurs that call the Gorge home, and as a by-product there are a lot of small business owners thriving in the Gorge.

What is Popular in Town?

There is never a dull moment in “the Hood’ with many activities to try!  Many locals and tourists enjoy a number of water sports (Windsurfing, Kiteboarding, SUP Boarding, Kayaking).  After a day on the river, try one of the many local breweries and/or wineries.  The town is full of fantastic restaurants such as 3 Rivers, 6th Street Bistro, Solstice and Celilo.  Hood River has many wonderful seasonal festivals too! (Click on the festival for details) Harvest Fest, Blossom Fest, Pear & Wine Fest, Hops Fest, Hood River Holidays

What about neighborhoods in Hood River?

Questions to ask about Windows

[slideshow_deploy id=’440’]

Let’s talk windows.  Windows can be draped, covered, shaded, or frosted. Windows give a room character, light, functionality, or a view.  Windows come in all colors, shapes, sizes and styles too!  There were a lot of wonderful windows in a recent pre-sold home built by the Curtis Homes crew. The windows benefit the new homeowner by bringing in cross-breezes, natural light and added character to each room.

In a new home or remodel think about what a new window will do for the room.  There are A LOT of window choices, but try to narrow down the options by thinking through what the room needs.  For example, does the room need more natural light?  Is the exterior of the home lacking a little character?  Would a sunset or sunrise be missed without a window in the room?

Once you know what benefits from a window the room will have, think about what you’ll see on the other side of that window, such as neighbors, mountain view, trees or a backyard.  Add a skylight, dormer window, picture window, bay window (the list goes on-and-on) based on what makes sense for the space and it’s surroundings.

The Curtis Homes’ preference is to include lots of  windows, as it makes sense of course, because we are building homes in Hood River, Oregon, the most beautiful place in the world.  Hilltop or mountain views makes us want to add a window. Possibility of natural light in a master bedroom’s walk-in closest makes us want to add a window.   Ask yourself what makes you want to add a window?
