Steve Bailey, OCHI #1830

Steve has been a licensed home inspector in Oregon since 2003.  Before that he spent 8 years in the Army working on aircraft, and followed that up with other technical jobs before finally settling into inspecting.  During his time as an inspector he also spent 12 years licensed as a general contractor, remodeling and repairing homes, and managing multiple rentals.

When not inspecting, Steve enjoys working on his 20 acre property, managing trees, building his cabin, mowing fields, tinkering on projects, and feeding his sheep and chickens.  Steve's son, who was also in the military, recently moved to Hawaii, so visting him is always a pleasure.
