Steep Slope Experts

Do you dream of a home with a view? If you’re like many people in Oregon and Washington, the home of your dreams includes a stunning view of Mt. Hood, the Columbia River, Mt. Rainier, or one of our regions other amazing natural wonders. The best way to make these dream views a reality is to build on a steep slope. Unfortunately, many people compromise on their dream home because they’re worried about the challenges and difficulties of steep slope construction. Luckily, Westlake Development Group can help. For more than 20 years, our custom home building experts have been helping people make their dream homes a reality. We know how to build beautiful, rock-solid custom homes on steep slopes throughout the Pacific Northwest.

The Key to Steep Slope Construction

A successful steep slope construction project begins with thorough planning and research. Once you’ve found a possible steep slope lot, we’ll begin by investigating the soil and surrounding groundwork to make sure we are able to construct a solid foundation. An extensive geotechnical investigation is required to make sure a suit is suitable for building upon. Watch the video clip below to see what we mean:

Watch how our geotech engineer begins tapping on what appears to be a solid piece of soil. Almost immediately, the soil liquefies and turns to mud. Imagine what could happen to your dream home if it was built on soil like this. We partner with experienced, local engineers who perform on-site inspections and provide essential documentation that can be used to help you select a suitable steep slope lot and assist with the construction process.
