Built by homeowner Brent Foster, this adorable ADU in Southeast Portland is made entirely from FSC-certified or salvaged lumber. Foster, a woodworking hobbyist, designed and built the structure to incorporate many sustainable features, including an innovative graywater system, 12" thick walls, and an ecoroof.
This handmade boat boasts oars, gunwales, and breasthooks made out of local, sustainably sourced wood. Isn't she a beauty?
Her name is Rosie, and she is the product of months of love and labor by a team of Portland women who, under the tutelage of the Wind and Oar boat school, took up woodworking tools for the first time in their lives and crafted this amazing functional piece of art. The gunwales and oars are made of clear vertical grain Doug fir sourced from forests just outside of Portland; the beautifully figured maple in the breasthooks is from the central Willamette Valley; and the floor boards are made of local Alder.

The guys over at The Official Manufacturing Co. know a thing or two about great design. We love how they've incorporated our locally-sourced, FSC-certified Doug fir into their new office space in Southeast Portland. They took basic dimensional lumber most often used for framing buildings and turned it into super-functional and unique work surfaces.
Doug fir says "Portland" more than any other species of wood and offers a warm and welcoming amber color with an interesting linear grain pattern. OMFG Co. artfully combined these elements with a sleek black concrete floor and lots of well-curated vintage accessories to create a space that perfectly reflects their distinctive aesthetic. We can't wait to see what they do next!
