Our Story

History

Even Construction’s success has been based on one thing — excellent customer service.

Growing up with a father as a Residential Building Contractor, Marc Even got his first taste of the construction industry at an early age. Years later, he graduated high school in 1976, followed by a year of college, while obtaining work experience in rough framing and finish carpentry.

He was a General Contractor in Southern California from 1982-1995 in Residential and Commercial construction. From 1985-1991, he served as a Foreman for a commercial contracting company, EB&H Construction, specializing in tenant improvements, remodeling and land development. Marc moved to Portland, Oregon in 1996 and started building Floating Homes in 1997.

Presently, Marc employs seven full time employees, all who have been with the company for more than four years. Marc’s lead man, Laevon Hansen, is an accomplished Carpenter and has exceptional leadership skills. Steve Tanke, who also is a valuable asset and worked with Marc’s father, has been with Marc for 25 years.

Between the two men, they bring over 50 years of experience in the building trades. Our success has been based on one thing — excellent customer service. Even Construction takes care of their customers, not just during construction but long after the home is built. Their philosophy is that if there is a problem, they will fix it. Available seven days a week, Even Construction is here to take care of you.

Sandra Anderson, PhD & Nancy Wilder, PhD

"Marc Even Construction built our floating home from the water up. In our opinion, it is the finest, most liveable floating home out there. Not once did Marc or his crew say ‘no, that can’t be done’. They are creative, enthusiastic, efficient and cheerful. Who can say they still love their contractor when the job is all done? WE CAN, DO."
