A Full Range of Home Design and Remodeling Services
As a general contracting service, we can handle practically any interior design and remodeling project you might have in mind. Our specialties include:
- Full home additions, including roof and foundation work, to add rooms or entire suites onto the home for more space to host guests and family members
- Whole house remodeling, giving the entire structure a brand new look and making significant changes to the layout and flow if necessary
- Living and Aging-in-place remodels, which increase the safety of family members living independently so they can continue to enjoy their current residence for as long as possible
- Kitchen remodels, with options ranging from moderate replacements to full overhauls that add new fixtures and appliances
- Bathroom remodels, including simple replacements at the same location to high-end spa designs
Our Design Process
We start every new project with a client consultation to discuss the potential project options. Once the scope and project goals are agreed upon, we provide a pre-construction design agreement that requires a client deposit that allows us to proceed with design and project costing. By developing the budget and needs of the client, we come up with a formal design for the space and estimate the costs of the work. We’ll work up detailed architectural drawings that include every specification. At this point designer Linda Evans will work one-on-one with the client to select the right materials, colors, and treatments from area showrooms and suppliers. When the final designs and materials are approved, we secure the permits necessary from Portland authorities and begin the construction work.
Reasons to Remodel Your Home
Remodeling is a natural part of a home’s life cycle. As the materials used to construct the home age, they eventually break down and require replacement. Even something as simple as painting and installing new flooring resets the clock on your home’s interior surfaces. Wood floors and sheetrock walls may last for centuries, but only with routine refinishing that is best handled by a professional remodeler.
Of course, there’s no need to wait until your home requires a remodel just to change how it looks and functions. Many remodeling projects are based around improving the flow or usability of a home by removing unnecessary walls or even adding them to turn large areas into bedrooms and closets. Homes with many steps and slippery flooring may need remodeling to reduce fall risks as you age. Remodeling is also popular as a way to make a home more attractive to buyers to secure a quick sale as well. No matter why you’re choosing to remodel your home, we can help.

Thank you for all that you do for us. We really respect your work, work ethic and relationships with your co-workers.
You really have a talent, Linda, for design, construction, decor, staging and client satisfaction. We have enjoyed working with you and of course, your wonderful husband Mark through our remodel. You make a great team, thanks so much.
Linda, we want to let you know how much Patty and I are enjoying our new basement and bathroom now that the remodel has been completed and we have had time to settle-in. The results of your design collaboration and management of our project surpasses our original expectations.
We really appreciate your openness to incorporate our ideas while offering your helpful suggestions, experienced guidance and hand-on supervision of all the details and sub-contractors.
The tile is gorgeous, I’m so pleased. It exceeded my expectations by billions. Linda you really have the touch and are a real artist.
Before I get carried away doing other things, I wanted to remind you that Luci and I are very much fan of Linda Evans. We know that you are a gifted designer and contractor, and we trust your judgment and integrity.
I can’t tell you how excited and happy Alvina is about the downstairs. She really appreciates all you have done. Thanks so much.
You are sunshine in our lives!! We are so thankful to have you as a friend, customer, interior designer and general contractor. We know we’ll be moving forward with excellent outcome.
Thank you so very much for the luxurious and grand shower. It is so very beautiful. having you both shepherding the project throughout its progress made all the difference in the world to having a successful outcome as well as ensuring that any problems that could occur, were handled readily. The professionalism and quality of workmanship by you and your team of crafts people is outstanding and gave us the assurance that the work was completed to the highest standard.
When Linda presented us with the week by week plan for our master bath remodel we were amazed at the detail she provided. At every stage, beginning with tile and granite to bathroom hardware selection, she was always open to our questions and thoughtful in her response.
She was very considerate in telling us when her contractors would be arriving each morning, which allowed us to enjoy our home more.
The remodel was finished on time and within budget and looks awesome. And it is a pleasure to use each morning.
We would like to highly recommend the services of L.Evans Design Group. Linda executed projects in two locations for us. We couldn’t have chosen a more competent and professional company. Every step of the way; from initial design to choosing flooring, fixtures, cabinetry and coordinating colors and materials, Linda presented options, choices and opinions that helped us make the right decisions for what we were trying to accomplish. From establishing the affordable budget to scheduling the work and making sure we were always aware of what was going to happen and when. She kept us informed and coordinated the with our schedule. We were especially appreciative of the care she took to make sure that the non- affected areas of the home were protected from the construction activity.
Linda Evans and her team did an outstanding job for us from planning stages all the way through to minor follow up issues. Linda is great about being open to “outside the box” thinking while still knowing when to point out things that might end up being unpractical or problematic down the road. The phrases hard-working, thoughtful, and honest all come to mind.
Let me just say, before I continue with anything else, Monica and I continue to LOVE everything that has come from the remodel! You, Mark and your subs did such a great job!
If ever you have jumped in with both feet, taking a leap of faith, a remodel is very much like that. Linda and Mark designed and completed our 3-bathroom remodel, including a rather glamorous master!
I loved the free-flowing, anything goes process. Linda will first take you on a wild ride of brainstorming and experimenting as she tries to home in on your vibe and your style. Then when you’ve finally set the course, she switches gears and the uber coordination kicks in. At some point later in the project she will surprise you and recall a small desire you mentioned long ago and leverage that for a creative recommendation. There will be moments of random brilliance. And it will all be done with close attention to the budget.
Buckle up and enjoy the brilliant ride on Linda’s Imagination rocket. You’ll love where you land!
