Parrott House

Home restorer brings Roseburg’s Parrott House back to life!

Heidi Lael had been renovating historic properties for nearly two decades when she took on her most personal — and epic — project to date. A gorgeous historic Queen Anne Victorian home, built in 1891 on Parrott Creek in Roseburg, had gone back to the bank during the economic recession. Lael, who had longstanding ties to the community, could see the house’s future in her mind: a beautifully renovated destination restaurant. Now, in 2011, it was coming up for auction. Lael...

Rollin Soles and three decades of wine-making in the Willamette Valley

On his very first visit to Oregon, Rollin Soles fell in love with the Willamette Valley. “I knew in my heart that this is where I belonged.” That fateful trip happened almost four decades ago, in 1979.

Open Your Mind to Creative Living Spaces

Unique Properties

BEND, OREGON – In many ways, the space in which we choose to reside often defines us. Yes, we decorate our humble abodes in ways which reflect our personal style and translate our personality through furnishings, art and color. But, in what one ultimately views as a literal money pit with the only solution being serious demolition, others are able to visualize the inner beauty of unlimited potential. There’s a special something about the inherent charm of something man-made,...

First Impression Curb Appeal Tips for Fall

Curb Appeal Fall 2018

BEND, OR – Though, many lament the dwindling days of summer, most of us are open to turning the page with great anticipation of falling leaves, 24/7 football and best of all, pumpkin-spice overdose. Most climates do, however, experience an unfortunate limited window of opportunity to thoroughly immerse themselves in the autumn spirit. For homeowners, the mere thought of raking leaves, yard work and maintenance rekindles memories of lower back pain, but for others, it’s time...

How to Choose a Farm for Homesteading in Oregon

Oregon is a great state for homesteading. The land is beautiful, fertile, and well-suited for a variety of crops, orchards, and livestock. You can easily produce enough to feed your family, and then sell whatever you don't use at a local farmers' market—even in winter. There's also a lot of variety in climate and geography, from rainy and flat to arid and mountainous, so you can choose a place that best fits your idea of self-sufficient living. With so much variety and potential,...

Goodbye, City Life… Green Acres is the Place for Me!

OREGON/SW WASHINGTON – Just a few lines into the classic ‘60’s sitcom Green Acres, and your mindset is pretty easily transformed from “never in a million years,” to “well… maybe.” “Farm livin' is the life for me; Land spreadin' out so far and wide; Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.” What was once a popular idealistic movement away from the stresses associated with city culture, has returned – with the help of modern technology. While there is...
