Amity Creek Magnet at Thompson Elementary
Situated within a National Register of Historic Places district and designed by noted Portland architect Francis M. Stokes (1883-1975), it was constructed in 1948 as a replacement for the older Reid school across the street. Thompson Elementary has served the community since welcoming students for the first time in January 1949. Built in the post-war International Style that was gaining popularity at the time, the distinctive ribbon-style windows were a key design element that were happily retained during a 2020 retrofit. This project involved the full restoration of 36 original windows including the replacement of original, single-pane glass panels with new double-glazed units for enhanced energy efficiency while retaining the original wood components of these distinctive windows.

Madras Army Air Field North Hangar
Constructed in 1943 to accommodate bombardment squadrons and training for B-17 Bomber pilots, this splendid example of a rare, intact example of a World War II-era military aircraft hangar sits on the former Madras Army Air Base three miles northwest of the city of Madras, Oregon. The rapid transformation of empty wheat fields into a fully functioning airfield and base stands as one of few local reminders of one of the nation’s outstanding war-time emergency projects.
This project involved the restoration of 37 original wood windows on this National Register of Historic Places listed property.
McMorran and Washburne Department Store Building (Tiffany Building) Eugene, OR
The historic McMorran and Washburne Department Store Building at 8th Avenue and Willamette Street in Eugene is more commonly known as the Tiffany Building, a name taken from Albert Tiffany, owner of the drug firm which owned and occupied the building from 1927 to 1958. However, the building's historical significance relates to an earlier period. Initial development of the property was a two-story brick building constructed for J. H. McClung in 1902. In 1913, the building was enlarged by two stories to serve as the headquarters of the department store firm founded in 1909 by George McMorran and Carl Washburne, who were to become pillars of the business community. Following its conservative redesign as a four-story building by the Portland firm of MacNaughton and Raymond, it was the largest building of this style in downtown Eugene.
Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989, not only is the building an outstanding example of local Commercial style, but it was, for than a decade, a leading dry goods distribution center in southwestern Oregon.
This project involved the full restoration of 106 original double-hung sash windows.
