PORTLAND - Portland-area remodelers and designers very busy this time of year.
Kitchens and baths are always at the top of the remodel list and bring the most return for the dollar. But also gaining big favor, is all that space many homeowners just don't think about, including attics and basements.
Another big area for remodelers is what's called ADUs - Accessory Dwelling Units. They are separate from the main house, sometimes known as "mother-in-law" apartments.
One in Southwest Portland was a complete rebuild from a 100-year-old farm garage.
The home builders of metro Portland reports that remodels on the West Coast outpace most of the country, other than the East Coast due to Hurricane Sandy.
This weekend is the Portland tour of remodeled homes.
