The Kashas Crew

Brian Kashas

Brian Kashas

Owner

Brian is a hands-on owner.  He has more than 25 years experience in construction, and cut his teeth in the early days working with his Dad building projects from the ground up.  Early in his career he saw a need for better organization and coordination of projects and adopted the Design/Build model.  He loves facilitating the connection between client, designer, and craftsmen.  His belief; when you put talented designers and craftsmen in a great system you get awesome results.  He is always looking for new technology and software to make remodeling more transparent and efficient.

When he’s not working on the business, he likes to travel, play guitar and grow delicious veggies in his garden.

Brian lives in Camas with his wife, two of his sons (two are all grown up), dogs Martha and Alice and cat Greta.

Stephanie Tottingham

Stephanie Tottingham

Lead Designer

Stephanie comes to us by way of Boise, Idaho via University of Oregon.  She’s unique in that she’s an architect who loves interior design.  She grew up with an interior designer mother who taught her to think about how spaces are used, what materials will go into them and how to make them comfortable – rather than just designing a shell.  As a former caterer and avid cook she has hands on experience that’s valuable in kitchen design.  She chose to become an architect to work exclusively in residential design.  She’s passionate about homes and family and loves the close relationship that develops between designer and client and making homes more functional and beautiful.

Stephanie lives in Washougal with her husband, son and two beloved pooches.
