Construction and Development Experience

Panterra Homes (or entities previously organized) have experience in the development and construction of subdivisions, manufactured home communities, custom homes and other structures, in Bend and Portland. The inception of those projects began with identifying a market need, site procurement, design, entitlement, site construction, marketing and management (in the instances of income properties). The roots of our vast experience can be traced to 1980, starting with home remodeling, small subdivisions and condominium development. Panterra Homes is active in additions, remodels and speculative home construction ($650,000 range). Kitchens, bathrooms, decks and aging in place alterations are our pleasure.

Mission Statement

Strive to become the best performing, respected and most sought after contractor in central Oregon.

Design Services and Permits:

While we are capable of producing “field” take off’s and concept drawings for discussion pur-poses, we recommend engaging a known design or architectural firm. Most construction projects require permits; permits usually involve some form of professional review. We will act as your agent through the permit process.

Codes and Our Philosophy:

We believe in building codes. They not only help create the better project they protect structures and life. Jeff Payne was a board member of the Oregon Building Codes commission from 1996 through 2008 and is an advocate of building codes. We also are strong advocates of education including those on code changes, techniques and new materials entering the market. Attending 20 or more classes per year is our goal. Let us put our knowledge to work for you. Our creativity, enhanced by education, adds value to your design and budget.

Property Opinions & Consulting:

On an hourly consulting basis plus expenses (one hour minimum; expenses + 15%), we can make site condition opinion reports that include observations of structures, mechanical systems, landscaping, neighborhood and potential compliance risks, however such findings and opinions are not based upon or to be deemed as a professional, structural, legal or environmental assessment but they will be based upon 33 years of real estate experience.

Best Practices

Best practices” is a term that describes both philosophy and technique, and which has been endured by the National Association of Home Builders. Simply, in all instances best practices exceeds what is required by building codes and yields a better, more valuable and efficient product. In material cost, such methods can save as much as 8% or more. Though disposal fees likely will be significantly less the greatest savings may be realized in the longevity and performance of the structure. We study and constantly update ourselves with new “best practice” materials and methodology.
