John McCulloch | Founder and CEO:

John grew up next to a park preserving two Victorian mansions: the Bush Estate and Deepwood House. From this came a love of great houses.

His interest in the humanities came from his mother, a leading Northwest artist, and his father, a history and literature aficionado. John studied Literature at the University of Oregon and Portland State University, Education at Lewis and Clark and Art and Architecture at the University of London. There, he earned additional post-graduate degrees in Medieval Literature, Victorian-British Literature, Victorian-American Literature and Education. John taught at PSU and at a local high school while growing his company. John taught Literature, Writing, Art, Spanish, Psychology, Law and PE. He also coached cross-country and track.

After designing and remodeling countless homes in collaboration with the region’s most successful architects, John still constantly researches historic housing architecture and construction. He has dedicated himself to doing the best work with the best team in Portland. He believes the architectural insight of the past brings elegance to the “Mother of the Arts” today. He believes that thoughtfully designed homes, buildings and landscaping form the essence of community.

As a fifth generation Oregonian, and the fourth John McCulloch in a row to live in Irvington, John takes community seriously. He is committed to improving Portland through leaving a legacy of improved historically significant buildings and through his work with charitable organizations and nonprofits. Recently, he founded the annual charitable Faces Event and The McCulloch Foundation to continue his work when he is no longer able to serve the community.
