The People at Iron Roots Design


Clients say our team is highly organized, good at explaining processes to those with little design and construction experience, great listeners and have a positive attitude.

Celeste McGowan, Bend Oregon interior designer at Iron Roots Design

CEO + Principal Designer


stylish | genuine | diligent

With Celeste’s education in interior design, she blends your aesthetic and practical needs to create bold, lush and seamless spaces. From the celebration of a new house, or business, to rediscovering what you love about your lifelong family home, she is excited to be a part of your project!

Coming from a family of artists, Celeste always loved drawing, puzzles and how things fit together and function. She started her creative career as a hair stylist. After 10 years behind the scissors she discovered her love of interiors when building her own tiny home. To dive into her new passion she studied Interior Design and graduated with the highest honors. She’s the first person in her family to receive a higher education. Celeste has plans to give back and help homeless youth. It wasn’t a simple path to achieve her dreams and she wants to help young people with similar struggles.

Celeste loves hiking with her son, reading, writing, kayaking, cooking and is a bit tea-obsessed.

Tim McGowan Bend Oregon metal fabricator at Iron Roots Design

COO, General Contractor + Furniture Designer


reliable | inventive | caring

Tim is an award-winning furniture designer with an extensive background in metal fabrication, design and construction. Tim has the know-how to see the big picture, deliver quality craftsmanship and is a professional when it comes to project accountability. He is pleased to help and always manages to find innovative solutions.

Since his late teens Tim has been in the construction industry. He’s a bit of a Renaissance man with experience in most areas of construction including working as a framer and electrician before pursuing welding. While in school he was hired out of the program to learn from a Journeyman welder. Tim builds functional furniture but also enjoys creating fine art. He’s an Oregon WinterFest Fire Pit & Sculpture Competition award winner.

When he’s not in his shop you can find Tim hiking with his son, slinging arrows at his backyard boss (that’s archery speak for target), cooking over the fire, or decompressing fireside with an ice cold beer.
