About The Forge

The Forge is a newly remodeled 8 bedroom house located in the Montavilla neighborhood in Northeast Portland, within walking distance of the restaurants and coffee shops on Glisan Street, and a quick bike ride to Mount Tabor. The house includes a 400 sq ft. co-working studio in the backyard, community kitchen, 2nd floor sun room, basement tea lounge, and a yard with raised garden beds and abundant fruit trees.
