We recently completed this addition in the Alberta Street neighborhood of NE Portland. We call this the Mullet House because our addition was at the back of the house. The house is all the usual business in the front with the real party in the back! Our client fronts the band Super XX Man. The addition created a new stair to the second floor and three new bedrooms with a full bathroom upstairs for this growing family. Harking to their southern roots, the exterior of the new addition was clad with reclaimed corrugated metal siding. If you’d like to check out Super XX Man, they will be featured on Oregon Public Broadcasting’s (OPB) Art Beat program Oct. 21,2010.

    Are you long-gone by now? Thanks for the posting. I came for the metal siding and stayed for the design. Is that upper-level door for emergency escape? Can you please explain the platform?

      Hi! We are still here! That photo was taken before construction was completed. That platform is a ‘Juliet’ balcony but didn’t have the railing yet. The door wasn’t needed for egress but it’s in the master bedroom and the owners wanted to be able to have good ventilation during the summer months. Our blog can be viewed directly thru our website now ( and we also have a page on Thanks for the comment!
