Welcome to Avgerakis. Avgerakis is family. Perfection inspires us. Collaboration is at our core.

We provide a full range of design and construction services from remodeling to building custom estate properties.

At the highest level possible.

We invite you to read what our clients have to say, view our homes and meet the Avgerakis team.



More than 30 years ago, I embarked on a mission to build homes that would be known for their quality and craftsmanship. Times have changed and we've grown considerably, yet this vision remains.

Over the years, we've completed a wide range of project types. Today, Avgerakis is one of the most sought-after design build companies in the Pacific Northwest. We're recognized throughout the industry for our top quality, state-of-the-art construction techniques and innovative design.

At Avgerakis, we care about more than just your finished project. Making sure you enjoy your home-building experience is equally important. We listen. We collaborate. We tailor our services to meet your needs and budget.

Our diversity of experience means we have the expertise to complete every phase of the design and construction process. We're hands on-from beginning to end. We know every nail, screw and wire required to create the project you want. Our unique, hands-on approach is the reason for our success and continues to drive our business today.

Thank you for your interest in Avgerakis.

Tom Avgerakis




Avgerakis approaches every project as a partnership. After all, we're building your home. You are unique and so are your ideas. Your input is key, so we come to the table with no preconceived notions. We begin every project the same way: We listen to your needs, your dreams and your budget.

The architect and builder work together and collaborate with you from the start-as a cohesive team and single point of contact. You don't have to bounce between dozens of experts looking for answers. Our job is to guide you through the process. Make everything simple. Answer your questions and offer expertise in a collaborative way.

Nowhere does collaboration play a bigger role than in the design process.

We thoroughly believe in the idea that form follows function. Since everyone functions differently, it is impossible to develop the form of a project without a thorough understanding of how the space will be utilized by its inhabitants.

Having the ability to work in and blend many architectural styles allows us to manipulate the form of a project by incorporating influences from many different sources. This enables us to maintain the look, feel and function that appeals to the client.

Working in the Pacific Northwest, nature is everywhere and sun can be scarce. Location of buildings for view, weather and solar exposure is paramount. Connecting interior and exterior space is very important in our work. Many times we will set up a transit and survey the building site on our own to determine the best location and orientation. We strive to make outdoor space an extension of the interior and expand living space to the outdoors.

We are technically proficient. Having a thorough background in construction gives us a comprehensive understanding of the building process and what it takes to construct a lasting structure in our climate. We know and understand the difference between designing and building a home on the coast, valley, mountains and desert. We invite you to view our portfolio to see some of our work.

We have built our company and our reputation on quality. Tom Avgerakis has been in business since 1978, and the team of craftsmen he has assembled over the years is second to none. Together we offer some of the most innovative features and construction techniques in the industry, as well as the styles and techniques of the fine-crafted estates of Europe and the old world. All are committed to producing the highest quality project on schedule and on budget.

Tom brings his years of experience to every project and functions as the team's day-to-day quality control. He works directly with craftsmen and subcontractors to make certain everything is done to the highest standard. Whether this means wriggling around in a crawl space or being four stories high on scaffolding, Tom doesn't take anyone's word for it. He personally inspects all construction and, in addition to our project supervisor, is on site nearly every day.

Trusting the expertise of your builder is the key to a positive build experience. The Avgerakis track record reinforces our ongoing commitment to having the highest standards for any build process.


We conducted an extensive remodel of our new home in Portland while living in San Francisco. We knew we'd need to make most of our decisions remotely, so it was imperative that we found an architect and builder we could trust. Joe Karman and the Avgerakis team ended up being the perfect choice. We built a great rapport with Joe and worked closely with him to come up with a design we absolutely love. We felt confident that the design decisions and materials he presented were based on the best interests of the project and our budget and not driven by profit potential. He always presented a range of options, the pros and cons of each and worked with us to keep costs in check.
