Letter from the Editor

FLIP INTO FALL

While touring a home on Awbrey Butte this summer, I heard a nugget of wisdom that made me laugh because of just how true it was. When asking the homeowner to reflect on the process of a recent home remodel, he said he now subscribes to the “times three” rule whenever approaching a project. It goes like this—for each hour, day or week you envision as the timeline for a given project, multiply it by three. Swapping out a light fixture should take less than an hour, right? Try three hours if it’s your first time.

Imagine the new shelving will be done in a day? Try three days.

You get the idea. Between all the trips to the hardware store, the mid-project realizations and the waiting time between coats and finishing touches, projects never go quite as quickly as imagined, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth the wait.

In this issue of Bend Home + Design, we meet some of Bend’s furniture flippers, who we’d guess are familiar with fluid timelines for design projects. Learn what motivates each of these hardworking women, and begin to brainstorm a “flip” of your own. Also in this issue, we offer inspiration as we settle into fall, with a look at backyard fire features and at-home saunas perfect for cooler weather. Learn about the Old Mill District, a shopping, dining and entertainment destination for many, and home to a lucky few enjoying views of changing leaves right on the river from their own backyards. Or if the brisk weather has you dreaming of warm, coastal breezes, dive into our story on Mediterranean home design to manifest that feeling in your own home.

Fall is an excellent time to enjoy a home-cooked meal using seasonal ingredients, and we offer three delicious ideas for dishes made with Oregon sweet potatoes. Before serving, freshen up the table with a new tablescape, using dinnerware and accessories from local shops. Once everything on the table is in place, we suggest a lively mealtime conversation about the next home design project on the agenda. Rather than focusing on the timeline for such an undertaking, keep your eyes on the finished project. It will be done before you know it…times three.

BEND WOODWORKING COMPANY CELEBRATES MILESTONE

A luxury furniture manufacturer in Bend is celebrating a production milestone this fall. Fernweh Woodworking is a small batch furniture design and production studio in Bend specializing in handcrafted hardwood furniture. All of Fernweh’s Danish-inspired furniture is designed and built in-house by the founder Justin Nelson and a small team of skilled woodworkers. Fernweh launched its first piece of furniture in 2017 and since then, the team has gone on to design and produce thirteen original table, chair and bench styles. Each piece of luxury furniture takes about twelve weeks for the team to craft from raw materials into the final product. In September, the studio completed production of its 100th Sling Chair, Fernweh’s first commercial design of a piece of furniture. It was celebrated with a studio open house and a screening of a film about the chair, which retails for $4,950. See fernwehwoodworking com

Bend-La Pine Schools Move Forward with Bond

Voters will decide this fall whether to support a $250 million bond measure for Bend La-Pine Schools, following school board approval this summer to put the bond on the ballot. If approved, the money will go towards various facility improvement projects at schools throughout the district. After working with current staff, the district’s Sites and Facilities Committee

narrowed a list of more than 400 potential projects to eighty-seven priority projects that need to be addressed within the next five years. A vast majority of the funds will be allocated to major renovations of Bend Senior High School. Over $178.2 million would go towards demolishing the oldest buildings on campus, which are more than seventy years old, and the construction of

updated facilities. The bond would also fund projects such as new door-lock systems, roofs, fire alarms, technology and the modernization of instructional spaces at schools throughout the district. Thanks to refinancing of previous bonds, school leaders believe the new bond measure wouldn’t increase property taxes for local voters. See bend. k 12 .or .us .

WARM SPRINGS ART SHOP REOPENS

Tananáwit, a collective of Warm Springs artists, reopened its brick and mortar art shop in early September. The nonprofit organization aims to cultivate greater knowledge of the Columbia River Plateau’s traditional and contemporary Native art. Work produced by the Tananáwit artists explores the strongly held values of family, creativity and Warm Springs culture. After briefly opening its doors earlier this year, the art shop temporarily closed until Deb Stacona, the newest executive director, and Sara Dowty, business and outreach coordinator, made reopening the shop a top priority. Various works from tribal artisans, ranging from paintings and photography to jewelry and beadwork, were showcased as part of the grand reopening. Stacona is excited to support local artists, and said in a press release, “Warm Springs is rich in cultivating artists. We have numerous master artists and want to support beginning artists, too.” Tananáwit is dedicated to empowering Native artists and sharing intergenerational knowledge of cultural art styles. The Tananáwit shop accepts art to sell, and items are sold on a consignment basis. See warmspringsartists . org .

Big Plans for Bend’s Powder House

Construction is abuzz at west Bend’s Powder House Ski & Patio, where an addition to the business’s current building is underway, and plans for a future taphouse and food cart patio are on the horizon. Construction began over the summer on a 6,400-square-foot addition to the current Powder House building, adding space for the business to grow its offerings of backcountry and cross country skiing gear, as well as expanding the service and rental shop and allowing the company to sell patio furniture year-round. The next phase of expansion is expected to begin around February or March, and will include the construction of a new 9,300-square-foot building, with a taphouse on the ground level and offices on the upper levels. Todd McGee, who owns Powder House with his wife Shanda, said the taphouse will have thirty taps, be heated in winter and air-conditioned in summer and offer seating for 125 people. On the patio, there will be room for twelve food trucks, along with a stage for live music and entertainment, a dog area and space for outdoor games. See powderhousebend com

New Redmond Apartment Complex in the Works

Redmond is poised to see a boost in rental housing inventory in the next year thanks to a new eighty-four unit complex that’s broken ground on the north end of town. The new development will include multiple four-story buildings, with green spaces intermixed throughout the 3.5-acre site, along with twenty-four storage units. The apartment complex will include one- and three-bedroom units, with features including balconies and fireplaces, and communal extras including picnic and barbecue

HOUSING CONSTRUCTION SKYROCKETS IN LA PINE

A historic housing boom is happening in La Pine, with 466 single- and multi-family homes under development this year, according to data from the Sunriver/LaPine Economic Development Report. The city typically sees about twenty new homes under construction per year, meaning the boom this year equates to a 2,230 percent increase in new home construction. City leaders say the city’s abundance of developable land, including the 350-acre Newberry Planning Area, is one factor enticing new development. La Pine also has excellent access to all the beautiful outdoor recreation Central Oregon is known for without the high price points found in Bend. Remote work is also a factor; people can now live in more remote areas without compromising their career opportunities. areas, and electric vehicle charging stations. The developer for the project is Bend-based Momentasize Construction, which specializes in midsize multi-family construction and storage. The project was designed by 541 Architecture in Bend and the general contractor will be Christiansen’s Contracting of Redmond. The project is expected to continue well into 2023, with new tenants moving into the apartments as early as the end of next year. See momentasizeconstruction com

Bend ReviseMay Short-term Rental Rules

The Bend City Council this summer continued to toss out ideas for addressing concerns that come with the city’s high number of short-term rental properties. City leaders in August proposed increasing the buffer zone between licensed short-term rentals from 250 to 500 feet, a move that would prevent several rentals from operating in close proximity to one another. Bend currently has about 1,100 licensed short-term rentals, with about a third of the rentals located in northwest Bend’s River West neighborhood. The city is also considering incentivizing rental owners to use their properties for long-term rental housing, potentially allowing homeowners to keep their short-term rental licenses active even if they house a tenant with a twelve-month lease. The new rules, if adopted, could only apply to licensed shortterm rentals. The city in the summer was undergoing an audit to identify illegal rentals and push homeowners into compliance.

REDMOND BREWERY OPENS BEND LOCATION

A small-batch brewery that had its start in a west side Bend garage has come full circle, opening a Bend taproom to join its existing Redmond location. Kobold Brewing started as a nano-brewery in the garage of its original owners in 2015. The company opened a taphouse in Redmond in 2017, and eventually moved brewing operations to a Redmond industrial space. Fast forward five years and Kobold is now operating both the Redmond brewpub and a second taproom location on Northwest Bond Street in downtown Bend, and has a new owner—local brewer Hayden Reynolds. The new Bend location is called The Lair, and offers thirty brew taps along with sandwiches and pizzas, and plans for cocktails in the future. See koboldbrewing com

CHILDREN’S MUSEUM OF CENTRAL OREGON TO LAUNCH CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

Pay attention, kids—a hands-on science museum could be in the works for Central Oregon. The Children’s Museum of Central Oregon is launching a capital campaign this fall to create a home for such a museum in the region. The nonprofit Children’s Museum of Central Oregon has been operating as a museum without walls since 2015 and ended all programming in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A new board of directors has re-focused its mission to create a brick and mortar museum with a goal to open in spring of 2026. A capital campaign will raise funds to directly support the development and construction of the museum, the hiring of staff, creation of exhibits and the development of STEAM-based (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) interactive programming for children ages 0-12. “Studies show that understanding STEAM concepts begins in infancy, but engagement and play opportunities based on these concepts often lag for young children (0-10),” said Board President Kenady Wilson. “We envision a place where all children have access to play that enriches their development.” See cmoregon org

Past Meets Present

HISTORY AND MODERN LIFE IN THE OLD MILL DISTRICT

When Sherry Ortega drops into the Old Mill District off Reed Market Road, she sees stunning views of the mountains, the sparkling blue sky, the iconic smokestacks above REI, people throwing frisbees, kayakers and standup paddleboarders, families walking dogs and outdoor diners and she wonders, why wouldn’t she want to live here? As a principal broker with Bend Premier Real Estate and a longtime Bend resident, she believes people come to Bend for the lifestyle.

“When I have clients from outside the area, I take them to Bend’s downtown area along Wall and Bond Streets and then to the Old Mill,” she said, adding that she doesn’t know of another place with so many lifestyle activities packed into one district. But it wasn’t always like that.

A BIT OF HISTORY

For most of the twentieth century, Bend’s life and economy revolved around two rival sawmills that both opened in 1916, helping fuel America’s growth. After the city incorporated in 1905, Bend grew outward from the early soul of the city—Mirror Pond and Drake Park where founding families arrayed their homes, and essential millworkers built homes closer to the mills.

The city prospered in the 1980s. Besides lumber, the city had Mount Bachelor, destination resorts such as Sunriver, Inn of the Seventh Mountain (now Seventh Mountain Resort), a community college and first-rate regional medical care that drew people to the area. But by century’s end, the collapse of the timber industry in the Northwest idled Bend’s last mill and frayed the economic fabric of the area. With the old economic power base gone, the city searched for a new identity.

William “Bill” Smith, who moved to Bend in 1970 while attending Stanford’s MBA program, had an idea; a really big idea that would add a thumping new pulse to Bend’s economy. As the former president of Brooks Resources Corp., and later head of his own development company, he was inspired after seeing how other cities had transformed blighted areas into lively new space for retail shops, restaurants, art galleries, parks and walking trails for public use.

He formed a partnership to purchase 270 acres on the site of the former Shevlin-Hixon and Brooks-Scanlon mills and spent years cleaning up eroded riverbanks long forbidden to the public. An interpretive sign in the Old Mill details the timeline of restoration: 1994 public access to 14,000 feet of riverfront; 1995 river trails created for public use; and 1997 a fish ladder installed in the Colorado Street bridge for fish migration.

In 1998, he gained approval of Oregon’s land use laws and city zoning requirements to develop the site, which opened in 2000 with Regal Cinemas and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Today it’s an entertainment hub and river-centric mecca with the recently remodeled Hayden Homes Amphitheater for outdoor concerts and events, shopping, dining, lodging, businesses, residences and miles of scenic river trails. A former airpolluting mill burner has been converted to a flower feature, joining thousands of flowering landscapes throughout the Old Mill—another flourish of Smith’s to beautify the area.

U RBAN LIFE IN A PLAYGROUND

Longtime Bend resident Dennis Oliphant, who built Sun Country Tours into a major whitewater adventure company—owning it from 1978 to 2016 when he sold to Mt. Bachelor—calls the Otter Run neighborhood in the Old Mill District home. “I lived out of town on acreage before moving into the mill,” he said. “It didn’t take long for me to appreciate the conveniences.”

“I seldom drive my car. I ride my bike everywhere, which is a huge advantage because it’s hard to find parking in Bend. We live on the water behind the Hayden stage, which is awesome. I really enjoy the music from our deck,” he said, referring to the home he shares with his partner Traci Porterfield.

He notes that Otter Run has no short-term rentals and 90 percent of residents live there year-round. There’s a perception that the Old Mill District has many second or vacation homes, but Oliphant said that property is expensive and “it’s not like a summer cabin.”

P rincipal realtor Ortega provided information showing that in August, the Old Mill District had only two active residential real estate listings and two pending sales, with prices ranging from $1 million to $2.3 million. She said condominiums and townhomes are highly sought after.

T here are more than 150 residential units in the Old Mill District with more townhome and apartment projects proposed in the future.

Today’s mill residents may be better off than the millworkers who lived nearby in modest homes, but their legacy endures a century later, carefully preserved by Smith and others who incorporated elements of both mills into the vibrant new district.

REMODELING ELEGANT EFFICIENT AND ENDURING HOMES TIMBERLINE CONSTRUCTION OF BEND
BUILDING GREEN WITH TIMBERLINE CONSTRUCTION OF BEND For the Earth DESIGN PROFILE 30 BEND HOME + DESIGN I fall 2022

Tothe untrained eye, the many small factors that elevate a house from traditional construction to a green, high-efficiency home are likely to go unnoticed. Whether it’s the effectiveness of insulation in the ceilings and walls, the configuration of studs within a wall or the number of panes in the glass patio doors, the details are what make all the difference in the quest to build green. With a little know-how, Central Oregonians can start to spot some of the differences in homes built with energy efficiency in mind, and those building new or remodeling may even push for these sustainable methods to be used in their own homes.

Since 1999, Timberline Construction of Bend has refined its own practices when it comes to green building, keeping up with the latest and greatest in environmentally-friendly building practices that clients seek out, while also making certain green features standard on all the homes the company builds. “Most of our clients have at least some concerns for their own health, the health of the community we live in, and the overall health of our environment,” said Kevin Lorda, a project manager for Timberline who has worked for the company since 2001. “Some clients are very motivated when it comes to conscious building, while others may just wish for some of the efficiencies and healthful aspects of these homes.”

LEFT: Foam insulation expands to create an airtight seal. RIGHT: Walls built with staggered studs dampen sound and improve insulating abilities.

Timberline owner Kristian Willman explained that while some of the energy efficient green building practices and products are done at the request of clients, others are standard practice for the company. “We’re doing some things as a builder as a standard,” Willman said. “These include really focusing on the envelope of the home—the windows, walls and insulation— the shell of the home.” Willman said creating a well-insulated, airtight building envelope is an essential part of green building, and something Timberline Construction is well-versed in.

Foam insulation, which is always used by Timberline, is sprayed into wall cavities, expanding to create an airtight seal that helps homes retain their temperature throughout the year—keeping cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Also inside the walls, prospective homeowners can choose

“ OUR HOMES ARE SO AIRTIGHT, THAT WE HAVE TO EXCHANGE AIR MECHANICALLY. ”
31fall 2022 I BEND HOME + DESIGN DESIGN PROFILE

whether to upgrade from regular studs in the wall to a staggered stud approach, a framing technique that keeps the two sides of a wall from touching, thus dampening sound and more importantly, reducing the touchpoints for thermal exchange—meaning even better insulating. “Our houses are so airtight, that we have to exchange air mechanically,” said Willman, who explained that HVAC systems and the opening of doors and windows help with this exchange, keeping home air fresh. During smoky summers, a home’s airtight seal and filtered air exchange is particularly valuable.

a product that alerts homeowners via smartphone of abnormal water usage at home, regardless of where they are. “I think every home should have one of these,” Willman said. Timberline can also install environmentally-friendly greywater systems that recirculate used water from showers, bathroom sinks and washing machines for use again in toilets and washing machines.

Sustainable building practices continue to grow in popularity, Willman said, particularly here in Central Oregon, where residents value outdoor recreation and taking care of the earth. “More people are becoming environmentally conscious, and I think people who are living in Bend or moving here are more outdoorsy,” Willman said. “It’s all about wanting to protect what we have in our backyard.”

A home’s plumbing system is another area where sustainable options are worth exploring. Low-flow and low-flush faucets and toilets are becoming more common, while tankless water heaters continue to be an efficient tool for only heating as much hot water as is truly necessary. One tool that can help in the case of a plumbing emergency is Moen’s Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff, Timberline Construction of Bend timberlinebend.com 541-388-3979 CCB#180380

HOW ONE CENTRAL OREGON COMPANY IS REDEFINING WHAT IT MEANS TO LIVE SUSTAINABLY the SHOW DESIGN PROFILE STEELING 35fall 2022 I BEND HOME + DESIGN

MarieSaldivar and her husband Kurtis met in the vast, Joshua tree-lined landscape of the Mojave Desert. They were part of a community of outsiders, artists and dreamers where many people were looking for alternative housing. “The desert is this liminal space that attracts outside-the-box thinking and problem solving, usually on a shoestring budget,” she said. It was here that Steel Hut Concepts’ first Quonset structure came to fruition in the form of an art studio/guest space. “We were looking for something that was financially attainable and that we could have agency over,” Saldivar said.

The word “Quonset” comes from an Algonquin First Nations word meaning “small, long place,” referring to the narrow peninsula known as Quonset Point, Rhode Island, where these structures were first manufactured. The Quonset hut was introduced during World War II as a packable structure deployed for housing and barracks, utilitarian and solution based space. “We’re still borrowing that same historical thread; they’re extremely affordable, they’re extremely sustainable, and we’re building for under $200 a square foot,” she said. Quonsets are long, arched buildings—these are particularly made of steel—and are architecturally sound in the clever yet simplistic design. Saldivar describes the buildings as, “an

ultra-modern cathedral meets giant Airstream. The exterior can read utilitarian until you step into the vaulted interior, a simple arched elegance.” All buildings from Steel Hut Concepts are made from 80 percent recycled steel, and spray foam insulation made from recycled single-use plastic and soy protein. “Everybody should have access to contemporary design and attractive, sustainable housing,” she said.

Saldivar is also a realtor for Cascade Sotheby’s in Central Oregon, and she is keenly aware of the uptick in recent costs for custom homes. “We’re seeing price per square foot costs upward of $800 for custom new construction, which is unobtainable for most and certainly doesn’t lend to the long term health of our communities,” she said. Steel Hut is a design and build model taking on custom projects in the region. The company is scaling the business to include grab and go plan sets which will be available on their website for out of region clients, or handy consumers who want to take on the project as homeowner builders. Their plan sets integrate Quonset shells manufactured by SteelMaster Buildings, a seamless collaboration making the process as streamlined as possible. From $3,200, someone looking for an affordable and green home can find a building plan on the Steel Hut Concepts website, and make that dream a reality in an ethical way.

structures create significantly less waste in comparison to other custom builds, because the Quonsets are predetermined to scale. “That’s a really exciting part about using this modular shell system—you can preemptively reduce a lot of the materials that are going to end up in the waste stream,” she said.

After obtaining a plan, the shells are an affordable alternative to traditional custom builds, ranging anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000 depending on size, meaning buyers and prospective Quonset owners have a massive advantage on the attainability of their new home. The zero-timber optionality also reduces the cost and keeps the building fire resistant. After that, the process of permitting, hiring builders and engineers, or building by yourself—as the buildings are all DIY friendly—is a simple step to having a dream home, ADU or garage.

There is one building option currently available for purchase, and in less than a year, about a dozen floor plans should be available for prospective homeowners to begin imagining their dream living space. Presently, Steel Hut Concepts sells many of the Quonset plans to out of region buyers, but Saldivar is hoping there will be even more demand for these builds in Central Oregon.

The scalability and customizability of the buildings is what makes the Quonset form less of a noun and more of a verb.

They can be made bigger, smaller, taller or shorter. “The sky’s the limit. Think multiple stories, think row houses, think different pods connected with breezeways. It’s just infinite,” Saldivar said. As the buildings are all permitted to be used as primary residential spaces, there is nothing holding buyers back from stepping into a totally new frontier of housing.

The sustainable actions taken to reduce waste—eliminating factors such as timber costs—and the availability of the buildings is a game-changer for the future of housing in Central Oregon and beyond, Saldivar said. The team at Steel Hut Concepts is steadily brainstorming new, innovative ways to create access to clean contemporary designs, healthy for our communities and our planet.

Saldivar said her husband is a “jack of all trades” builder, mapping out the technical side of a project, while she is more detail-oriented. Steel Hut Concepts started as a passion project that is now seeing traction. “The market is changing, and consumers are looking at housing through a more creative lens,” Saldivar said. “I’m always dreaming of my next hut.”

BALDHEAD CABINETS FILLS LUXURY GARAGE NICHE

It all started in a garage for Bend’s Baldhead Cabinets, which is today a designer and manufacturer of heavy-duty, high-quality garage cabinetry. In the 1980s, Eric and Bobbie Fleming started a metal manufacturing company in their Costa Mesa, California, garage—creating heavy-duty metal security boxes to protect change receptacles in laundry machines. The boxes were sold to laundromats as the couple began to explore other forms of metal manufacturing.

Fast forward to the year 2000, when the Flemings were remodeling their garage, and a new idea popped into Bobbie’s head to create metal cabinetry. “It was my mom’s idea to make cabinets out of metal for the garage,” said Peter Fleming, the couple’s son, who was a teenager at the time. The cabinetry the Flemings created for their own garage was somewhere between a Snap-on tool chest and custom kitchen cabinets, built to the highest of standards using metal. “They thought, if we’re going to make a cabinet, we’re going to make a really nice cabinet,” Peter said. “The idea was to have a nice countertop, space for tools and plenty of storage cabinets.” When the project was complete, the Flemings took photos and shared them in a local Southern California magazine, which caught the attention of some potential customers looking to outfit their own garages.

GROWING THE BUSINESS

O nce the Flemings zeroed in on cabinet manufacturing, their business began to grow slowly but organically through Southern California and

40 BEND HOME + DESIGN I fall 2022 DESIGN PROFILE

beyond. Calling the business “Fleming Cabinets’” didn’t seem catchy enough, so the Flemings instead opted for the more memorable name “Baldhead,” after an engineer who has worked with them from the start who was bald. “The name stuck, it’s a name people don’t forget and people usually get a bit of a chuckle out of hearing it,” Peter said.

Since the beginning, the products and the experience of designing, creating and installing custom cabinetry has been something that appealed to a small, niche audience, Peter said.

“This has never been something for your average garage,” he said. “This is the one percent of the garage market, not the masses.” In the early years of growing the cabinetry business, the company visited automotive trade shows and advertised nationally, aiming

to appeal to customers looking to elevate their garages with high-quality cabinetry. Over time, the business grew organically and through advertising, attracting new customers and repeat clients looking to outfit another garage or car storage space. “It’s a huge compliment to have repeat clients,” Peter said.

It was a cabinetry customer in Bend that first enticed the family to move to Central Oregon, after they visited for an installation in the early 2000s. “The customers were absolutely head over heels for Bend, and were sharing all their favorite spots and things to do,” said Peter, who was getting ready to start college at the time. It took a few years to determine whether a move north to Central Oregon made sense for the company, but ultimately it was the right

IT’S A HUGE COMPLIMENT TO HAVE REPEAT CLIENTS.”
41 DESIGN PROFILE fall 2022 I BEND HOME + DESIGN

call and the business migrated to Bend in 2005. The business moved out of a 20,000-square-foot facility in Southern California into a new, comparably priced, 55,000-square-foot space in northeast Bend. There’s ample space here for ongoing cabinet manufacturing, as well as other metal manufacturing that’s still a part of the business today.

A CONCIERGE EXPERIENCE

C lients are drawn to Baldhead Cabinets for not only the quality cabinets, but for the experience from start to finish with an established company that’s rooted in the United States, said Peter, who is today part of the company’s management team, along with his parents and other managers. Peter explained that each project is designed and engineered with input from a customer, with cabinets created specifically for their garage. A series of consultations and communication builds repertoire and trust even before the transaction is made or cabinets are built.

W hen it comes time, the Baldhead Cabinets team is available to visit each home in-person for installation, ensuring the final product is up to a homeowner’s standards. “A lot of what we are selling is the whole experience,” Peter said. “At the end, people will say ‘I knew they were going to be good, but I didn’t know it would be this good.’” Over the years, the company has considered delving into more garage accessories, but has instead decided to keep its focus narrow, truly specializing in what they do best, cabinets. “We want to really focus on what we do, and do it well,” Peter said. “We take a lot of pride in what we do, and creating a product that we’d want in our own garage.”

KYLEA CIVELLO DESIGN

ylea Civello turned to furniture refinishing to keep her mind occupied while her mom was sick, and again when experiencing postpartum anxiety after the birth of her first child. “My first piece was our dining room table,” said Civello, who is originally from Canada, but was living in her husband’s home city of Palm Springs, California, at the time. “I found it at a thrift store and decided to tackle it.” Civello sanded the table down by hand with a sanding block, re-stained it and sealed it. “It kept me busy during a really hard time,” she said. After moving to Bend in 2019, Civello continued working on furniture during any free time she had on top of being a stay-at-home mom to, Beau, 4, and Margot, 2. Now, a few years later, Civello has finished dozens of pieces, and about half of her work is commission-based, updating or restoring pieces for clients who find her primarily through her Instagram, @k yleacivellodesign. She posts before and after images on her page, which has more than 10,000 followers. In August, Civello was busy working on a 2010 wine cabinet for a customer in Seattle. “People have pieces that they’re kind of over, and instead of throwing it away, I’m totally reworking it,” Civello said. “I’m painting it, and adding doors and cane webbing.” Many of Civello’s pieces have intricate painted designs or features such as wooden dowels or bamboo accents. In the future, Civello would love to do more projects that breathe new life into someone’s existing furniture. “I love to be able to create something unique for someone’s house, that no one else will have,” she said.

therapist Erin Chinburg-Corcoran first tried her hand at restoring and refinishing furniture eleven years ago as a means to make extra money while raising young twin boys on her own. Years later, Chinburg-Corcoran got married and the family regularly visited Central Oregon. In 2018, the family moved to Bend full time, and during the pandemic, Chinburg-Corcoran found her furniture side hustle was becoming more of a “main hustle.” Chinburg-Corcoran said she enjoys keeping up with the trends, and selects many pieces for refinishing that are higherend mid century and post-modern styles. “Clean modern lines and earth tones are really hot right now,” she said. ChinburgCorcoran said her interest in furniture refinishing came about after realizing that many new furniture pieces today, even fairly expensive items, are built with poor quality particle board that isn’t made to last. Instead of buying this low-quality furniture for her own home, she opted to thrift higher-quality pieces that needed a refresh, which she accomplished with “a lot of vision and some elbow grease.” As the hobby grew, Chinburg-Corcoran turned to social media to share her

projects and sell completed pieces to followers using her Instagram page, @clementineandolive. T hese days, ChinburgCorcoran is typically working on two to four pieces at once, completing restoration work on one, while focusing on repairs and painting on others. On average, she spends about three to ten hours working on each piece, depending on the vision. As she finishes each project, Chinburg-Corcoran said she’s happy to know she’s doing something good for the environment by restoring and refinishing furniture, keeping it out of landfills. “I love pulling the full potential out of a piece of furniture,” she said. “There’s no greater joy than knowing I’m a part of an important trend that helps the environment.”

RESURRECTED DESIGNS

NativeOregonian Amy Seymour first arrived in Bend in 1992, and after bouncing around to other areas, found herself back in Central Oregon about five years ago. Inspired by other female woodworkers and DIY lovers, Seymour, a medical lab scientist, began to nurture her daydream of being a carpenter. “I thought, why can’t I play with power tools?” Seymour said. During COVID, she built up the confidence to begin working on more furniture refinishing and building projects, and started an Instagram, @resurrected_designs, to document her work. She scours Facebook Marketplace for good deals, opting for sturdy, well-built wood furniture pieces—being partial to dressers and nightstands and midcentury modern designs. Sometimes, the pieces are a bit dingy, drawing reactions like “it stinks” or “I can’t believe you brought that into the house” from Seymour’s husband, but after some time and sweat equity, she turns them into beautifully refinished pieces, ready for their new home. “I’m always on the go, so I find sanding super relaxing. It’s just a nice break,” Seymour said. In addition to sanding woods, painting and staining and swapping out hardware, Seymour also likes building on legs and adding other handcrafted features to the pieces. In the future, she’d like to do more furniture craftsmanship, in addition to refinishing dumpsterbound pieces.

HeatFEEL THE PRIVATE SAUNAS AT HOME IN CENTRAL OREGON 54 BEND HOME + DESIGN I fall 2022 DESIGN TRENDS

Known for their relaxing and rejuvenating effects, saunas have been shown to provide real health benefits, something especially appealing to fitness-conscious Central Oregonians. Evidence suggests sauna bathing may be tied to a reduced risk of vascular diseases, according to research in the peer-reviewed journal, Mayo Clinic Proceedings. For some people, it’s an enticing enough option to invest in one of their own.

A sauna is a special insulated room built of softwood and outfitted with a heater, according to Karen Post, who co-owns her business, Aqua Hot Tubs in Sisters, with her husband, Jason. The sauna’s heater contains rocks that can be heated to 600 degrees, but the room itself won’t get hotter than 180 degrees. “The health benefits are amazing, even just for mental health, rest and relaxation, meditation,” Post said. “For most people, sauna time is a quiet time; you’re not just improving circulation, burning calories, you’re doing a lot for your skin.”

Saunas can also help relieve joint pain and stiffness, according to Post. Most people heat the room to between 120 to 140 degrees, Post said, adding that anyone with health concerns should consult their doctor before partaking. In a traditional Finnish sauna, like those that Aqua Hot Tubs offers, users ladle water over the stove’s rocks to make steam, creating about 10 to 40 percent humidity.

For Heather Cashman of Bend, having a sauna at home is such an essential experience, she'll be installing one for the third time. Each time Cashman has moved in recent years, she has built a sauna with the help of Redmond Spa Stove & Sauna. She uses her sauna at least four to five times a week, for about fifteen to

twenty minutes at a time, she said. “It’s sort of almost euphoric, you’re so relaxed,” Cashman said. “If I’ve overexerted my muscles or anything it helps. You can just go in there and feel it unwind.”

Sizes of saunas can range depending on when you decide to add one. If you’re building a new house, there is the most flexibility with size. A size of five by seven feet is the most common for interior saunas added to an existing home, Post said. “If they’re building new, they’ll do bigger because they can. For exterior saunas, you’ll get all different sizes.” The ceiling height of saunas is usually no higher than seven to eight feet to maximize efficiency and safety.

While saunas offer a pretty standard setup of benches surrounding a heater, homeowners can make the room’s layout their own. Glass doors, commonly used in

saunas, can also be etched with eye-catching, custom designs.

Saunas can be built custom or from kits, on your own, or with hired help depending on how handy you are. Many people associate saunas with the smell of cedar for good reason; saunas are built with softwood, and cedar is a go-to option.

At Aqua Hot Tubs where Post sells the Portland-area based brand Finlandia, the wood options are Western red cedar and Western hemlock. Aesthetically, hemlock is light and consistent, providing a slightly more modern look, whereas cedar is a bit

richer in color with more variations throughout the wood. Both have soothing scents, Post said.

Finlandia offers two options for home saunas: prefabricated and pre-cut. Prefabricated saunas are kits that come with the interior and exterior walls plus insulation, ready to piece together. For pre-cut saunas, the Finlandia team designs and draws custom plans for the space in which you are looking to build your sauna, and then sends every piece needed to build the sauna—from the customcut slats of wood, to the pre-made benches, Post explained.

The prefabricated option is a standalone sauna that might be placed in a home gym, garage or in the backyard if a roof is added. A pre-cut sauna might be built into a spare walk-in closet, extra space in an oversized bathroom in an existing home, or the sauna room of a new custom home.

Saunas are often adjacent to home bathrooms, for easy access to rinsing off before or after.

Sauna

In addition to contractors, many people hire electricians if needed, as electric sauna stoves may require a 220-volt outlet. For many modern saunas, technology allows people to start heating their sauna using an app on their phone. Saunas with wood stoves are an alternative option to electric stoves.

In Central Oregon, where Scandinavians began immigrating generations ago, some people are drawn to saunas because they grew up with them. Others simply want a permanent spa experience at home. “They are a personal thing, a home sauna,” Post said. “Once you do it a few times, it’s something you miss when you can’t do it.”

Saunas in nature are particularly peaceful. Open the door after a sweat to experience the brisk, fresh air.

Bringing a pop of color into the mix of neutrals offers a focal point for the space.

EMBRACING THE TIMELESS STYLE IN CENTRAL OREGON

Imaginea breeze wafting off the pristine shores of the coastline, and seamlessly carrying the salt air from the patio, through a stucco archway and into the living space; this is what Mediterranean-style homes are known for. The red roofs and use of exposed, natural wood throughout the space are signatures found in most of the sub-branches of Mediterranean design influenced by Italy, Spain, Greece and contemporary trends.

Though the style is sparsely found in Central Oregon, stunning architecture modeled after the homes dotting the Mediterranean can be found in pockets of the high desert. For example, Ranch at the Canyons in Terrebonne overlooks Smith Rock and other natural landscapes. There, walking onto the property transports visitors to Tuscany, where the main buildings (the Tuscan Stables, the Old Clubhouse Winery and the equestrian center) in the private residential acreage could be resting at water’s edge—or just above where the fresh air still flows through the arched windows. The tan walls of the buildings, some of which play host to weddings and other events, immediately provide a sense of serenity and a nod to what the interior looks like.

REFRESHING DESIGN

When aiming to give your home a facelift by way of manifesting the shores of Greece, Spain or Italy, you don’t have to go as far as demolishing your modern walls, or retiling the roof to mimic the grandeur of Ranch at the Canyons. Instead, implementing pieces with Mediterranean influence can make a significant difference, and refresh a home in an exciting, ageless way.

The first step is choosing accent colors that will offer contrast with the natural tones of the house. One of the most notable accent colors found in Mediterranean-style homes is a pop of blue; much like the shades found along the coast of Greece. Or, shades of reds and yellows pair nicely against tan or stucco walls from the Italian or Spanish influence. A fun way to implement these colors into your home is by creating a new backsplash with Mediterranean-characteristic tiles or mosaics.

NEUTRAL AND NATURAL

In all homes influenced by this style, there is a great emphasis on the fluidity of indoor-outdoor living. The

transition between a comfortable, indoor living area to an equally cared for outdoor living space is usually seamless. Consider using soft neutral fabrics with similar pops of color as the indoor living area to make the path from indoor to outdoor—or vice versa—uninterrupted and open.

Another staple feature of most Mediterranean-style homes is the use of natural materials. While exposed wooden

beams may not be in the cards for a house tune-up, wood furniture or decor may be. An accent chair with carved wood arms and a neutral cushion, or exposed wood shelves stacked with natural clay pots or books can also mimic the many avenues of Mediterranean interiors. Architecturally, these homes were originally built to support a lifestyle in a climate with hot, dry summers. That being said, it may be surprising to not see as many around in the high desert. The mechanics behind the arched doors and windows, and carefully constructed stucco walls are not all that’s required to influence a home in the high desert to appear as if it’s seated on the coastline. Aesthetically, incorporating a few small changes into your living space can make it feel as if you’ve just stepped into the beautiful countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea.

Fire adds undeniable warmth (not just in temperature) to outdoor spaces, helping areas feel welcoming and cozy on cool fall and winter evenings. A gas-powered fire feature encased in stone can create a focal point for the backyard patio. For more creative options, consider a low to the ground, modern fire bowl or a geometric steel chiminea—both of which make great conversation starters in addition to keeping everyone warm.

FALL BULB PLANTING IN CENTRAL OREGON Season BULB

Beyond the pigmented leaves and pumpkin spice mania, there’s abundant activity taking place in the fall. Bears are stuffing themselves full and fat on anything they can get their jaws around. Squirrels are accumulating stockpiles like fuzzy doomsday preppers. Birds are aiming their beaks southbound toward warmer weather. And garden tenders—the savvy ones—are planting bulbs.

Bulbs exist under the broad category of perennial plants, or plants that live more than two years. Taken literally, the term perennial means “through the years.”

Planting bulbs in the fall, if done correctly, will offer delayed but beautiful spring blooms for years to come. “Bulbs are the gems of the garden. They’re little treasures. You plant them and forget about them, then all of a sudden, they bloom, and they’re amazing,” said Moss Mahler, founder and sole operator of Hobo Rosa Landscaping. There are “green thumbs,” and there are people like Mahler who have green fingers and toes as well. Her business, Hobo Rosa is founded on passion, and her experience is a result of twenty years of hard work and indulgence in her curiosities. “This is what I love, so I spend a lot of time geeking out on it,” Mahler said.

‘TIS THE SEASON

The purpose of planting in the fall, according to Mahler, is to give the bulbs time to put down roots and establish themselves below the surface. Because nothing is happening above ground, especially during the late autumn and winter months, many people have the false assumption that nothing is happening below ground either.

Bulbs should be planted when soil temperatures are around forty degrees, according to Amy Jo Detweiler, community horticulturist for Oregon State University Extension in Central Oregon. For successful flowering, bulbs also require a chilling period, or roughly ten weeks in a row at forty degrees or cooler. “September through October is going to be a good window to plant here in Central Oregon,” Detweiler said.

Peonies are a deer-resistant tuberous plant that typically flowers in late spring. They come in a variety of colors and enjoy Central Oregon's winter chill, followed by the sunny weather.

71fall 2022 I BEND HOME + DESIGN GARDEN LANDSCAPE

CHOOSING AND PLANTING

Tulips, daffodils, crocus, hyacinths, scilla and snowdrops are the more common spring-blooming bulbs, but they are by no means the only options. “One of my favorites is the foxtail lily,” Mahler said. “I’ve been having really good success with them and they’re really showy. They get three or four feet tall with their flower spikes, and they like the drier conditions here.” While climate is a crucial factor in bulb choice, Mahler advocates for personal taste. Find something that will spark excitement at full bloom after a long winter.

In preparing the bulb bed, typical weed removal, soil loosening and amending the soil with compost will all be beneficial for bulb development. Choose an area that will get at least six hours of daily sunlight in the spring, and follow the general rule of planting bulbs three times as deep as the bulb is tall, with the pointed end of the bulb aimed upward. For tuberous plants—another bulb-like structure—or bulbs that don’t have an obvious point at the top, plant them rootside down, or on their side just below the compost surface, with the indented side facing up. At the time of planting, both Mahler and Detweiler suggest adding a handful of fertilizer high in phosphates.

TIME TO BLOOM

Big bloom or small, prepare to bear witness to a fresh splash of color in the spring. “The bigger the bulb, the bigger the bloom,” Detweiler said. “The size of the bulb, when buying them, has a direct correlation to flower size.”

The exact timing of the bloom will depend on the variety of bulb and soil temperatures. The birds and bees will enjoy them as well, but beware of deer who have a strong appetite for tulips. Appreciate the flowering period in the spring and understand that the flamboyant, above-ground life of a bulb is short-lived. “After bulbs flower, they go through an awkward phase,” Mahler said. “Daffodils are a good example, they flower, they look really great, and suddenly they look like they’re dying.” Similar to the planting and dormant period underground, this awkward phase is important. Where many people error is their impatience in cutting back the yellowing leaves. When the initial burst of beauty subsides, the remaining leaves—while sad-looking—are soaking up as much solar energy as they possibly can. Wait until the leaves are good and brown before cutting them back, and trust the perennial nature of the bulb—they’ll be back.

“You Say(Sweet) Potato…”

3 WAYS TO PREPARE THIS ROOT VEGETABLE FOR BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND DINNER

The varieties and recipe possibilities for sweet potatoes are boundless, mostly because they are some of the most versatile foods around. Eat them with a side of fried eggs, try them topped with feta cheese or on the side of dinner one Saturday night. Find locally grown sweet potatoes at farm stands before they close for the season, or pick them at Bend’s year-round indoor farmers market, Central Oregon Locavore, after farm stands close up shop. Here are three simple but delicious ways to prepare sweet potatoes this autumn.

BEND HOME + DESIGN I fall 202274

Hash Browns

On the side of eggs and bacon, hash browns are among the most popular breakfast staples. After washing, peeling and shredding a sweet potato or two—either in a food processor or by hand—add olive oil to the mix and whatever spices sound good such as paprika, salt or pepper. Then, on an oiled or buttered stovetop pan, flatten the mixture into patties and fry until crispy. Afterwards, top with green onions, sour cream or both.

TIP: Use an ice cream scoop to help shape the hash browns before flattening with a turner.

Sweet Potato Tacos

It sounds simple—and it is—but this is truly a choose-your-own-adventure type of lunch. Start by dicing the sweet potatoes, tossing in oil and taco seasoning, and roasting in the oven. While you wait, prepare the endless list of toppings to make the tacos complete: try black beans, avocado and feta cheese for a refreshing flavor. Once out of the oven, stuff the sweet potatoes in a spruced up corn or warm flour tortilla, drizzle with lime and dig in.

TIP: For a flavor with a punch, add chili powder.

Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Picture this: it’s an autumn evening, the grill is fired up for the last few days of warmer weather before winter dips in, and you’re in need of the perfect side dish to pair with a weekend dinner of salmon, steak or burgers. Cut the desired amount of sweet potatoes into quarter-inch rounds or slices, and toss in olive oil, salt and pepper, or paprika. After the sweet potatoes are just fork-tender, remove from the grill and top with cilantro. Voila—a straightforward and tasty way to prepare sweet potatoes with a smoky zest.

TIP: Try using garlic salt or rosemary to season the sweet potatoes for a more distinct flavor.

The contemporary arts collaborative Scalehouse Gallery, located in the downtown Franklin Crossing building, brings provocative and nontraditional exhibitions to Central Oregon.

October

San Francisco graphic designer and visual artist Hope Meng presents “2 into 1,” an exhibition of letterforms through the Monogram Project and TEXT/TILE Studio. The two projects challenge viewers to see letters disassembled and reborn into innovative design forms. “I investigate the boundary between legibility and the undecipherable—how much or how little needs to be revealed before the mind fills the gap? How much of each letter must be included to be recognized as itself?” she said. In the Monogram Project, she explores each letter in relation to another and the common ground between two letter forms

when their correlations aren’t always obvious. The TEXT/ TILE project taps into three of Meng’s lifelong passions: typography, design and sewing. From these, she creates abstract quilted compositions with embedded messages.

November and December

“Walking Through the Desert with My Eyes Closed” is photographer Nancy Floyd’s artistic interpretation of hiking through desert landscapes where loss is evident even while life continues to adapt and survive. The exhibition will include videos, photographs and porcelain objects. Floyd, who lives in Bend, has received numerous grants and awards including a 2022 Guggenheim Fellowship. In 2019, Floyd’s thirty-nineyear self-portrait series, “Weathering Time,” won the inaugural International Center of Photography and London-based publisher GOST Books First Photobook Award.
