Portland Renovations is a design-build general contracting company located at 107 Anderson Street in Portland, Maine.


Our focus is to create modern, energy efficient, durable structures and spaces that are in response to our clients' needs and the location.







recently completed small project for a great long term client. this is a 30' long wall unit that envolved rerofitting an old existing wood burning fireplace into a new modern wood

stove insert. the work involved total masonry reconstruction of the existing firebox to accommodate the new appliance, re-framing of existing room openings to create accurate,

near perfect openings to accommodate our cabinet work, and then of course, the assembly. the design is based on horizontal and vertical "bands" of positives and negatives.

once filled with books and artwork, the design will eventually be complete, until then, here's a glimpse. our latest project with this client is their new kitchen (adjacent this room),

which is underway....stay tuned!






current project near completion on the peninsula in portland. this is a full gut renovation of a three story, 2400 s.f. home originally built in 1890. our challenge was to bring

this structure back from a very poor state, to an energy efficient, four bedroom, two bathroom single family residence. we employed a very clever wall detail for renovations

that acheived a blower door result of 3.0 ACH before any siding, wall insulation or drywall. after the walls are complete, we will be far exceeding the basic requirements of the

building code for even new construction for air leakage and R value. yes, we have ERV units installed for fresh air given the air tightness, we understand that aspect too. we

anticipate the end result to be half of 3.0ACH, (better) we'll keep you posted after we run the final test.
