Unique Designs & Craftsmanship, Leaving a Desireable Lasting Impression for Years to Come.

Exquisite Custom Homes in Bend, Oregon. Specializing in Cottages with Character.

At Rivers Northwest, our goal is to provide luxurious living in a smaller footprint, thereby protecting quality of life for people, fish, & wildlife. The focus is on quality of finishes, rather than quantity of square feet.

With 32 years experience in construction, General Contractor Randy Partipilo and his wife Jo, understand and appreciate all aspects of building. Growing up in the northwest and residents of Bend since 1972, they understand the desire to have a home that reflects the beauty of the area in which we live.

Our Homes


We are not a high production company, but a personal and "hands-on" one. Each home is crafted as if it were our own. From the lot selection, home design, interior and exterior detail, each step is carefully considered. With only three or four homes built each year, all aspects have our complete attention.

Interested in a Cottage with Character? See our Portfolio for samples of what we've built in the past and what we could build for you.

Homes For Sale
