Design-Build: A Smart Solution for Clients
Rainbow Valley is a design-build firm, meaning we integrate the design and construction aspects of a new home or a kitchen remodel. Unlike the traditional architect and general contractor model, where you deal with two different firms, in the design-build process it’s all one team with you from start to finish. It’s easier for you, it’s more straightforward and the responsibility for success lies in a single place. It works. We know because we have been at it for more than four decades, bringing beautiful, design-build craftsmanship and easy working relationships to every single project. Ask any of our hundreds of very satisfied clients.
Whether you want a kitchen remodel or create a master bedroom suite, our skilled team of in-house designers, general contractors, project managers and carpenters all work in concert to turn your ideas and inspirations into reality. Along the way, we listen, help you evaluate options, make suggestions, all while our web-based software keeps you apprised of schedule, costs and material selections. Our goal is to improve the value, function and beauty of your home while meeting your schedule and budgetary targets.
You spend a lot of time in kitchens and bathrooms. So do we. For more than 40 years, bath and kitchen remodels have comprised a large part of our work. From cosmetic upgrades to “down to the studs” makeovers, our design-build team will turn what you have into what you want. We know these are important rooms. We work efficiently and conscientiously to complete your kitchen and bathroom makeover with as little disruption to you as possible.
From initial site planning and conceptual sketches to environmentally sound heating choices, we are with you every step of the way as you plan and build your new home. With our collaborative design-build process, we seamlessly balance your aesthetic, functionality and budgetary goals to create a beautiful and lasting home that is the perfect translation of your ideals.
Front porches, backyard decks, outdoor kitchens and spas all help bridge the gap between home and nature. They bring the living room outdoors. Not only do these outdoor spaces immediately add value and function to your home, they are a fiscally sound way to extend the livable footprint of your home. Our Outdoor Spaces Division is skilled in all manners of outdoor and landscaping projects, including: stone masonry, patios and hardscapes, storm water drainage, decks and other outdoor structures.
Think small! Whether you call them backyard cottages, art studios or accessory dwelling units, we will design and build a small cottage to fit your needs. Whether you choose from one of our pre-designed plans, or opt for a custom design, our professional designers will maximize the space and functionality of your small cottage while ensuring that it blends naturally with your home and neighborhood.
The team at our sister company, Valley Wood Floors, has been installing and refinishing beautiful and durable hardwood floors for contractors and homeowners throughout the Willamette Valley for more than 15 years. Attention to detail, exceptional workmanship and a strong work ethic are attributes you can expect.

Homes are not disposable – neither is our work. We design and build for the long haul. We think like a rain drop to make sure the Oregon weather stays outside and your energy efficiencies stay inside. We are so confident in our craftsmanship, Rainbow Valley offers a Five-Year Warranty for all the work we do in your home.
We feel strongly that communication is the key to successful relationships. That’s why we utilize a web-based program to manage your project. Throughout construction you access this program from our website to find timely updates from the contractors on schedules, construction costs, material selection choices, and answers to your specific questions. This information hub is just one more example of how we continually strive for clear, open and timely communication throughout your design-build experience.
