Our Silverton Home

I began drawing floor plans in Rockford, in anticipation of our retirement and return to Oregon in July 2003. In the fall of 2003 Carmen and I found a beautiful view lot in Silverton, Oregon, thanks to Marcia Branstetter of Silverton Realty

Floor Plan - Hexagon Home

Local architect Mike Wellman revised my drawings with several wonderful improvements on my plan. Contractor David Leikem at David Leikem Construction allowed me to work as a volunteer crew member in most phases of construction. We broke ground April 17, 2004 and construction began in July.

As our home began to take shape, we were excited to see the dream becoming a reality. Our twenty foot high living room windows give us a view over downtown Silverton, and across the valley 4 miles to Mt. Angel Abbey. On clear days we can see Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainier in Washington.
