We were filled with angst when we initially decided to build our own home. Where to start? We were so fortunate to have found Gerald Rowlett and Westlake Development Co.
If you want to work with professionals that are trustworthy and reliable you need look no farther than Westlake. No drama, no surprises. We stayed within our budget. We felt calm and joyful.
The project also completed before its scheduled time!
As a supplier of building materials, we appreciate the opportunity to work with a highly ethical organization like Westlake Development Group. As a “Street of Dreams” caliber builder, they place the highest value on quality regarding the homes they construct. They are also very involved in giving back to the community, especially when it comes to our military veterans. We are extremely proud to be associated with Westlake Development Group!

I have worked with Gerald Rowlett and his team at Westlake Development for several years providing construction financing for their projects. Specifically we have worked on Street of Dreams homes together and had successful experiences. I am very comfortable referring my clients to Westlake when they have not chosen a builder yet. In cases where clients ask for multiple builders to choose from, they always choose the Westlake Team. Not only does Westlake build a beautiful home, but they truly care about the quality of work that goes into the home, and that they are building the home FOR THEIR CLIENT. The truly impressive thing is the way the Westlake Team is able to resolve. When you build a home, there are going to be hurdles that come up- it's just part of building a home. Their vast experience and ability to calmly look at options and find a resolution is impressive. They don't lose focus, they resolve and stay on track to meet the deadline. I am always confident any referrals I send to Westlake will have a positive experience. I give Westlake my highest recommendations. Mark Pendley - Loan Officer - Umpqua Bank
Gerald Rowlett is as sincere as he is meticulous. I recommend Gerald to my clients because he puts his heart and soul into every detail and I trust him to treat my clients as if they were his own family. When you experience his homes in person you will be delighted to see the attention and fine craftsmanship in every detail. If you are looking to build a home I recommend you have a consultation with Gerald and you will immediately sense what I am sharing.

My wife and I absolutely love the homes that Westlake builds! When we attended the Street of Dreams last year my wife only wanted to go to see Westlake's home. She said, "it's the best every year, so why bother with the others"! We of course toured all of the homes and of course she said, "I told you so"!
Westlake Development Group is a highly respected home builder here in Portland and we had the pleasure of working with Gerald and his team on the Street of Dreams home he built in 2014. Gerald and his team were great to work with and their home was stunning. It was great to see the homeowners faces when they walked in to see the home completely finished and furnished by Garrison Hullinger Interior Design. There were big smiles and a few tears shed as they realized this was going to be their home. Given the number of trophies they received that year, it was evident that Westlake Development Group knows who to work with to create award winning homes in the Pacific Northwest.
Westlake Development, specifically Gerald Rowlett did a remodel and addition to our home. Gerald made wonderful suggestions and helped us sort out all of our ideas. He was outstanding in helping us accomplish everything and more then we had hoped for our dream home. Westlake Development turned what was a simple 1980's ranch home into what we think is now a beautiful, comfortable, and very livable home for our family and friends.
We cannot imagine having used anyone but Gerald for this project and we are more then pleased with the result.
We have worked with Westlake Development for the past two years. They are very professional and they build a great home. We have done 2 St of Dreams Homes with them and are working on two more this year as well as other projects.
As a supplier to Westlake for products needed to meet the design and function requirements of his homes, it is important to have a detailed organized contractor. Not only does Westlake excel in the operations of their home building process, they demand exceptional performance by the subcontractors working on their homes. I have worked for Westlake for 20 years and have never had a home buyer say anything negative about them. That is an extremely difficult thing to do when all your projects are custom new creations.
Despite the fact that Westlake Development has been building custom homes the past 30 years our introduction to Gerald was only three years ago. The building industry was recovering from a major recession but Westlake Development seemed to be beyond survival mode and much of that was due to Gerald's attention to the client's desires. Our entire team has experienced great success with the vast team of people brought onto the site to create a client's dream home and much of that culture stems from Gerald's team wanting to do-the-right-thing culture. He focuses on the client and never tells us (as designers) that something can't be done, but instead...let's figure this out. A majority of our new build projects in our portfolio have been built by Westlake Development...and we're proud of that.
