Orange Splot LLC

We are a housing development company, general contractor and consultant with a mission to pioneer new models of community-oriented, affordable, green housing in Portland and beyond.

For this project, we teamed up with Born and Raised Construction. Born and raised in the Buckman Neighborhood, brothers and co-owners Simon (right) and Rion (left) are dedicated to increasing the livability of Portland, starting with building and remodeling homes to meet the needs of its residents.
