Greetings From Freestone, the Portland Area’s Most Innovative General Contractor

What does it mean to be the Portland area’s most innovative general contractor? It’s a competitive landscape, and it’s easy for contractors to get stuck in old habits and behind technological curves. This is especially true with small, boutique, and specialty contractors like us. This is an obvious and almost ubiquitous problem, so why hasn’t it been solved yet? We’re here to do just that.

My name is Idir Anani, and I am glad you’re here! Freestone Builders is the Portland, OR-based general contracting company I formed to bridge the gap between high-end construction quality, and fast, affordable work that’s accessible to all homeowners (luxury estates, investment properties & starter homes alike). My partners and I are working to develop a new brand of construction company: one that’s honest, flexible, modern, and ready to work for you. I won’t go into the details here (I’ll save that for another post–gotta feed the algorithm!), but we accomplish the uncommon and strive for the seemingly impossible. Our competitors in Oregon and beyond are often good, hard-working people, but the industry at large is stuck in the past, to the detriment of the work, and your money. I started this company in an effort to change that.

We have developed partnerships and programs to enable you to reach your home repair and renovation goals without breaking the bank. If you’re looking for an opportunity to leverage your cash rather than spend it all on construction projects (BRRRR customers, I’m looking at you), or are strapped for cash, we can connect you with financing options to ensure you preserve and boost your property value. If you’re thinking of selling, we have an exclusive Pay-At-Close program that will allow you to complete big projects that boost your sale value without any upfront cost (there are other terms and conditions to protect us and you, the homeowner, but I’ll save those for a future post). We even have whole-home services in development to maintain and protect your most important personal investment.

Check back here for more posts and updates as we grow. In the meantime, I hope you’ll give us a call if you’re thinking of a home project that’s a little too big to tackle on your own. We’re always happy to help. We’ve partnered with professionals across peripheral industries like drafters, engineers, real estate brokers, and more to make sure your home ownership journey is hassle-free, and to save you money. When time comes to fix-and-flip, build that permitted ADU, or re-zone your property for townhouses, please reach out, and we’ll help you navigate the complexities and decisions. My goal is to make the process a pleasant one. Our industry can suffer from a negative reputation of opportunism and dishonesty, but I’m working to reverse that with Freestone. Our work is guaranteed, and when we accept a job, our promise to you is that it will get done right, and most likely for less than our top competitors. We’re a young company, but we’re off to a strong start.

Thanks again, and it’s a pleasure to meet you. Give us a call or shoot us an email at to say hello!
