                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: Debbie and Curt married in 2009. Curt, a builder, grew up in Oakville, Washington. Debbie is originally from Sacramento California, but has lived in Eugene since 1995. She has a 9 to 5 and loves house design. The Elkay House, built in 2000, was designed by Debbie. Curt has since made additions and improvements to it. Together, Debbie and Curt design new homes, which Curt then builds to sell. We like to travel and between us have visited 26 countries. Prior to meeting Debbie, Curt sailed solo for 3 years; to Hawaii, then made his way to New Zealand. We enjoy sports, photography, writing and especially our combined 5 adult boys and their growing families. We have a 2 acre place on the Mohawk River in Marcola, Oregon, which keeps us busy.

                  Why the Owner Chose Eugene:
                  A unique custom home set in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by trees, centrally located. Sandy is our dedicated housekeeper, who makes sure everything is fresh, clean and inviting.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Fully stocked kitchen with gas stove, KitchenAid mixer. Natural gas barbeque in the back courtyard. Fine wood craftsmanship, some of the beds are handmade from Central Oregon juniper. A cabinet with bus tubs in the kitchen so that dirty dishes never have to be out. Central laundry room with chutes from the master and upstairs bathroom. Hand-crafted art glass feature windows designed by Debbie.
