Whether it’s a bustling cityscape, majestic mountain range or a shimmering lake, Trailside connects you to your surroundings.


The concept of “home” extends beyond the physical walls to include privacy and orientation to the surrounding environment.


The PNW can be rugged. We make sure your home is built to withstand the challenges of rain, snow, wind, ice and four seasons of change. 


We create a unique living experience by incorporating unseen vantages and seamlessly merging your home with the terrain. 


Home features and design options come into consideration to determine the
optimal use of window placement, size and materials to maximize sunlight exposure.


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We examine all the possibilities, and share our team’s professional suggestions about how to make your view uniquely yours.


When your architecture and interior design come together the result will be a seamless integration of fit and functionality. 


Location, land, utilities, and use of materials are carefully considered when building, to respect and enhance the existing environment.
