New Rustic Style Home

Curtis Homes built a rustic style home in White Salmon, Washington.  The home features impressive wood beams, a re-claimed barnwood wainscoting in the main living areas and wood accents wrapping the exterior of the home!  Builder Cameron Curtis commented, “the home is a one-level with wood accents that turn-up the character and style of this beautiful house.”   The built-in hutch and shelving continue to add to the character of this home build.

Tour a New Home

Houzz is a great tool for homeowners, future-homeowners, remodelers, builders and inspiration for the dreamers!  Take a tour of the inside of recent home we finished in Bend.  It was on the Central Oregon Builder Associations tour of homes this summer.  

The home overlooks Northwest Crossing’s Discovery Park in Bend, Oregon. The views of the living room are of the courtyard and pond in Discovery Park. The interior of the home invites in the Central Oregon light, vistas, and natural beauty. The home was designed to always have a useable outdoor space that is protected from the winter elements or shaded from the hot summer sun. The goal of the kitchen was to be the center of the party- if you’re in the kitchen you still can see what is happening out on the courtyard or in the living room.

Ty Pennington & Cameron Curtis

Both Curtis and Iremonger, who have 16 years of combined building experience,  enjoyed discussing the always evolving green techniques in framing and air-sealing homes with the other building professionals.

Curtis was very excited about brand-new software that will help streamline his customer’s building experience.  The software will revolutionize how clients select finishes, schedule walk-throughs and the building process of their new home. It is important to Curtis Homes to offer clients the most cutting edge products available. To learn more, ask either of them about the multi-faceted topics and what they learned.

Lastly, it was wonderful for Curtis to confirm Curtis Homes is currently using advanced products for home building and to see a few new trending ideas that could be incorporated in Curtis Homes’ home building process.  See more photos of the IBS Show on our FB page!

Six Ways to Stay Clutter Free!

1. Give every item a home… Have lots of storage areas.  In a recent home built by Curtis Homes five extra closets and lots of cabinets were installed to give the home more storage.  The question, “what is this space doing for the home?” was asked for every square inch of the project.  The result is the home is full of useful and purposeful storage space.

2. For every one new item, two old items must go… Have a donation box or future garage sale box in your master bedroom closet or the coat closet.  In turn if you are in need of something new, check at a local thrift store, re-build it center or consignment shop for what you need.  This is the ultimate in recycling.

3. Pin, post and hook… Pin must-have info to a stylish family bulletin board. Post information on a chalkboard.  On hooks hang jackets, hats, or keys so everything is easy to find.

4. Go wireless…. Avoid a lot of cords by taking your technology wireless. Turn a cord cluttered office desk into a sleek workspace by opting for a wireless keyboard, mouse and server.

5. Take an underwater basket weaving class… Okay, no need to make your own baskets, however baskets are the number one way the Curtis family stays clutter free.  Everyone has their own basket.  Throughout the week, the small random objects around the house get put in the right person’s basket.  Usually during TV time we all go through our baskets.

6.  Declutter your mind… If the house seems to be messy, take a deep breath and go inward. Find a way to relax and gain perspective.  Papers, toys or cloths on the floor are all signs of living a full life.  This fact can brings you peace; we don’t live in the pages of home magazines.  Abraham Lincoln put it this way, “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”

Why a Fleur de Lis?

Why is there a fleur de lis in the Curtis Homes logo?

CH_fleurdelisThe french symbol represents the start of the company and the values that drive Curtis Homes. During Cameron Curtis freshman year at Corban University in Salem, Oregon, hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans leaving thousands homeless. Seeing the immense need for able tradesman, Cameron traveled south to pour his energy, skill, and heart into rebuilding hope into lives of others.  It was there in New Orleans that Curtis Construction and Remodeling was born. After living in New Orleans gutting and rebuilding homes in New Orleans, Cameron returned to Salem and established Curtis Construction & Remodeling – a company focused on offering quality construction.

As Cameron finished college and grew in his passion for building homes he changed the name of his company to Curtis Homes.  The name reflects Cameron and Emily’s desire for the business to be family owned.  The fleur de lis was added to the logo, as a daily reminder that building hope, good service and family tradition is at the center of Curtis Homes.
