Striving for Excellence
"EXCELLENCE IS AN ART WON BY TRAINING AND HABITUATION. WE DO NOT ACT RIGHTLY BECAUSE WE HAVE VIRTUE OR EXCELLENCE, BUT RATHER WE HAVE THESE BECAUSE WE HAVE ACTED RIGHTLY. WE ARE WHAT WE REPEATEDLY DO. EXCELLENCE, THEN, IS NOT AN ACT BUT A HABIT."

PATRICK SCHMITT - DESIGN HISTORY
While still in college, Patrick Schmitt was hired to draft and design custom home plans for the Charbonneau development, a 2000+ upscale home site for active adults, located near Wilsonville, OR.
Upon completion of that project, Patrick was immediately recruited by George Marshall, a long-time Portland builder/developer, to work at the prestigious Claremont Golf Course Development in NW Portland. During his 11 years at Claremont, Patrick served as Vice President of Design Services, managing the in-house design center. In this capacity, he met with over 1000 home buyers, guiding them through the design and selection process, estimating costs, overseeing and preparing plan sets, working with the local jurisdiction and coordinating all information with the in-house construction and sales staff. At the same time, he also worked on several other custom home design and multi-family projects in and around the Portland area.
In early 2000, he founded Patrick Schmitt, Designer, Inc., a full service custom home design firm. Since then, he has worked on numerous individual homes and upscale developments including the Edgewood and Mill Creek neighborhoods in Forest Heights, North Pointe Meadows in Albany, OR, Daffodil Hill in Tigard, OR, Ironwood Estates & Ironwood Acres in Sherwood, OR and Vineyard Estates, located in the wine country of Dundee, OR. He has also designed many individual custom home plans on the Oregon Coast, Washington Coast, Central Oregon, California, and Southwest Washington.
