Our Story


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 and started building Floating Homes in 1995.

Marc’s team consists of experienced builders that have been with Even Construction for a number of years – this consistency creates a cohesive, collaborative atmosphere where projects proceed as efficiently as possible and potential issues are identified before they happen.

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.


"Even Construction treated our project with care – like it was their home – with great attention to detail, service and craftsmanship. The transformation to our home exceeded our expectations. We gladly recommend Even Construction to anyone looking for custom built homes that are unsurpassed in quality."

Joe Robertson, President of OHSU, & Patricia Fisher

"Marc is the most competent builder of floating homes and a person of integrity. He and his talented team built our house with excellent craftsmanship and an eye for creative design. He is not only a good communicator, but also responsive and reliable. We have had absolutely no regrets in selecting Even Construction."

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."
