Ladd's Addition Deck
This was my first permitted deck. I tore the garage down, built a fence, and installed this deck in place in the fall of 2017.
Eastmoreland Deck and Fence
The fence is made from pre-stained clear cedar planks from Lakeside Lumber. The deck is Azek composite decking. This was a highlight project from the summer of 2017.
This is a backyard studio/shed that was built in SE Portland. The front facade is cedar, and the rest of the exterior is Boral siding.
Eastmoreland Cedar Fence
Builder By Bike constructed this fence, using western red cedar. The fence has three different designs, which tied all together to form one beautiful enclosure. Materials were acquired through Mr. Plywood, 52nd Avenue Lumber, and Sustainable Northwest Lumber.
Builder By Bike built a cedar deck for his sister in Kansas City. This deck is 368 square feet in size, built solidly on 12"x30" concrete piers to accommodate for KC frostline. Builder By Bike's sister celebrated a 13-year dream come true after it was completed.
Small Landing and Stairs
This was built with partial re-use and cedar sourced from Brown Lumber. The structure was finished with Penofin Verde rosewood oil.
Bike Rack and Shelter
This bike rack and shelter was installed for a not-for-profit community organization here in Portland.
This carport was built for a client in SE. He wanted something that was going to protect his vintage VW Bus. The Vespa is getting the protection in this shot!
In conjunction with Terraccord Landscapes, I constructed and finished this pergola. The client was thrilled with how it turned out.
This front desk was built for The Vital Compass. I used re-use wood, sourced from the rebuilding center to make the facade.
Gate and Fence Rebuild
This client in SE had a gate and fence that had lasted over 20-years! They asked me to build a gate and fence to stand the test of time. I used cedar 4x4s, 2x4s and planks sourced from Sustainable Northwest Wood. The fence was coated (front and back) with Sun Frog stain.
Pocket House Gate
My clients had a rolling gate that did not work anymore. They asked me to re-use the existing gate, and mount it on posts, and construct a lintel overhead.
A client wanted a privacy screen that separated her house from the accessory dwelling unit. Builder By Bike sank three posts and spanned the length with 1x2 cedar. The wood was finished with Osmo.
In conjunction with Terraccord Landscaping, Builder By Bike installed this cedar gate for a client in NE Portland.
This bench was made from Doug fir beams that had been sitting in the rain for who knows how many years. The wood was planed with a hand planer, cut, joined, and finished with Sikkens stain.
Front Door Restoration
This original door had layer upon layer of paint on it. The door was "dipped," removing all the lead-based paint, sanded, and finished with rosewood oil. The door handles were also restored with period parts.
This bicycle shed is made almost exclusively from re-use materials. The roof was from a carport demolition, the doors made from 1x8 shiplap, and siding was from the Rebuilding Center.
Front Porch Stair Railing
Often I get clients who need to fulfill obligation to their insurance companies. I built this cedar handrail for a client to meet current code, and satisfy his insurer.
Installed Fence and Gate
A client moved into a rental unit, and asked the landlord to have a fence built, so that his kids would not wander out of the yard. Builder By Bike was hired, and worked with the landlord to make sure that the fence was built to his specifications.
8x8 Chicken Coop
A farmer asked Builder By Bike to build her an 8x8 chicken coop, which included 15 nesting boxes. This project took 5-days to complete, and now the chickens are happily laying eggs in the new nesting boxes!
Garden Boxes Made From Re-Use
Working together with Terraccord Landscaping, I built these garden boxes with the aluminum roofing that came from a demolished carport.
Sliding Wood Fence
Builder By Bike completed this fence, which an unlicensed contractor started. The gate to the driveway is a sliding gate, which takes up less room than a swing out gate.
Broken Gate Fix
A client had Builder By Bike come out, because the 4x4 end post was not properly sunk into the ground causing the gate to sag and close improperly. The project was fun, done correctly, and the client was happy!
Stairs and Deck
Builder By Bike completed this deck and stairs for client with a historic home in outer SE Portland. The project also included pouring a 5x4 concrete pad. Three 2x12 rough-cut cedar planks for the stair stringers were provided by the client to help reduce lumber costs. This was a fun project!
Loft at Joe Bike
Joe Bike had Builder By Bike construct an 8x18 loft at his new location on SE Lincoln and SE Cesar Chavez. The loft will be used for bike storage, and helps optimize the space that he has.
With the exception of the roof, this composting bin was made entirely out of repurposed wood. The frame is made out of old pallets, and the front and back were made from an obsolete child's play pen that the YMCA no longer could use.
