Originally built in 1967 by Bob Rummer, Oregon Homeworks completed a "to the studs" remodel, with the goal of having the mid-century modern gem shine well into its second century.
The remodel left the original floor plan mostly intact, including the classic interior atrium, vaulted living room, post & beam construction, floor-to-ceiling windows, and exposed T&G ceilings. A wall separating the kitchen and family room from the dining room was removed to open the flow throughout the living spaces, and two rear-facing windows were added in the dining room to maximize light and backyard views. The "hobby" room off the garage, which was a popular feature of many Eichler/Rummer homes, was converted into a mudroom, second master closet, and home office. The original layout of the hall bath and laundry closet was altered to maximize functionality.
In addition to these floor plan edits, the remodel included new windows, insulation, plumbing, wiring, HVAC, drywall, cabinets and hard surfaces throughout. And the original slab-on-grade concrete floor has been fully exposed and polished. With Oregon Homeworks’ focus on modern and mid-century architecture, this project proved to be one of our favorites as we were able to honor the original design, while adding updated functionality and amenities throughout.
