DAS CHAPIN

Das offer’s design, planning, and permit support in partnership with JNT Design and Build. Starting out in the early eighties making furniture and, later, theatrical scenic design, he subsequently moved his focus to concentrating on alternative construction techniques involving strawbales, earthen plaster, hand hewn timber frames, and super insulated envelopes. Within a few years going all in on the alternative community movement, Das spent ten years designing and building domiciles, temples and healing facilities. Eventually the sea called him away to the island of Nantucket where he supervised the building of mega homes for the rich and famous.  After a few more life changes he packed up and headed west along the Lewis and Clark Trail, landing in Portland. And here he is fully embracing the PDX construction scene, bringing all those years of design and building expertise with him. He offers design services for people interesting in creating new space for themselves, their families, or a new rental property.
