We are huge fans of South Oregon Coast Artisan products. So much so that we’ve built a mailorder shop into this site.
Our store features premium products from local hand-makers. Check the collection for sale at https://socoasthomes.com/shop
Kristin and David have owned a 2-acre hobby farm in Bandon since 2010. The orchards feature fruit, olives and various berries. While peppers, lemons, and tomatos (and a zillion other interesting veggies) grow in the greenhouse.
Kristin holds a Masters in Earth Sciences from Montana State and spent many years with the Federal Government (USDA) and later, in private industry.
David studied Mechanical Engineering and entered the Information Technology field rising to the level of Director with a range of premier companies before becoming an independent consultant.
Together they continue to consult technology needs for a range of clients mainly in the US.
Over the years, consulting to Realtors became an increasing portion of our business. Finding that profession dynamic and interesting, we’ve become licensed in Oregon. Property Sales will be added to the repertoire of services we enjoy providing.
We have been married since 1985, no children. We keep Elsie and several cats — or they keep us.
Entertainment (if there’s time after chores around the ‘farm’) include beach combing and when weather permits – riding coastal highways on the Harley.
We’ve owned homes in Montana, Nevada and before coming to Oregon, on Bainbridge Island, across Puget Sound from Seattle taking the main ferry to Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. We’ve been blessed to fish rivers and salt water and also ski many seasons in MT and CA.
Additionally, numerous adventures packing and climbing summits all over the west.
We recommend Seattle Theaters, San Franciso restaurants and make the note that Bandon is exactly half way between our two favorite cities (a single day-long drive.) We follow the Mariners and Giants (his and hers.)
