8 Inch Nails offers a full spectrum of client-focused, high-end remodeling services. Our goals are to help you bring your vision to life and provide an unparalleled remodeling experience.
Historic Preservation & Restoration
Some people call it ‘vintage.’ Others call it a ‘classic.’ To you, it’s your home. When it comes to your building project, you don’t want just any contractor remodeling it. For nearly 10 years we have built an outstanding reputation in historic preservation and restoration in the Portland area.
Using both new and recycled materials, sustainable building practices and repurposing materials and hardware whenever possible and appropriate, you’ll not only love your updated home, but will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your remodel will leave a small footprint on the environment.
Whole House Remodeling
It was love at first sight. When you first saw your home you knew it was ‘yours.’ Whether you’ve been there for years or just moved in, bringing your home up to date – or doing a historic restoration project – can be a life changing event. Working with a home remodeler who understands how to help you be true to your home will make all the difference in the world.
You prepare and share meals there. It is the hub of your home entertaining. It is where you live… kitchen remodeling projects are one of the surest ways to not only add value to your home, but to enhance the feel of your home in general. Whether you are looking for a restoration project for your historic home, or to bring a dated kitchen back to life, we are the only kitchen remodeler you need to call.
We are committed to excellence as well as sustainability. Whenever possible and appropriate, we use green building techniques and materials so your remodeling project leaves a small footprint on the environment while making a big impact on the beauty and livability of your home!
Your bathroom is an oasis for you, where you go to unwind at the end of a long day. If you live in an older home or one with an outdated bathroom, you probably have a hard time finding peace there. We can bring the bath back to life and help you create a space that you’ll look forward to relaxing in. Whether you live in a ‘vintage’ home and want to match the style of the time or want to build a modern bathroom with all the bells and whistles available, we will help you turn your vision into a reality.
You love your home… if only there was more of it to love. Whether your family is growing or you simply want a kitchen, bath or bedroom with more space, creating a home addition is the answer. One of the biggest challenges in adding on to your home is finding an experienced contractor who understands how to make the addition appear as if it has always been a part of the house.
Equally adept at basement conversions, dormer additions, and even ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units), our builders can handle all of your space addition needs. With experience ranging from historic preservation and restoration to contemporary projects, from bath and kitchen remodeling to full home remodel projects, there isn’t much that the 8 Inch Nails team hasn’t seen or done.
Period Details & Inspirations
Thinking about adding period details or other inspirations to your home to make it one-of-a-kind? We have experience making over both historic and newer homes with eyebrow windows, winding staircases, floor inlays, stained glass installation, period specific tiling and other architectural woodwork.
Decks, Patios and More
Looking to extend your outdoor living space right out the back door? For decks and patios, sheds and garages, outdoor kitchens and other features, 8 Inch Nails is the Portland contractor that homeowners have turned to for nearly a decade.
