Finding Bend during his snow travels out west, Nate brought his skillset and design education to Central Oregon in 1996. After running a crew of carpenters for five years, Nate added the design element to his services and launched Ridgeline Custom Homes. Now, Nate is the soul owner, designer, and lead carpenter. It is his ability to understand your vision and translate it onto a landscape that makes Ridgeline projects unique.
