Clearlake Oaks...Spring Valley...28 Years and Counting...by Hank Montgomery Realtor/General Contractor
28 years ago today my wife Jocelyn and I became Spring Valley Residents! We had come to Spring Valley to begin our first ‘Owner-Builder' project and we began our project like most Owner-Builders...under capitalized and way under experienced! Fortunately for us Spring Valley, was and is a great place for an Owner-Builder to build a home.
People adopted us...gave us encouragement when we needed it...gave us advice-which we always needed...gave us what we needed-when we needed it. The stories are many and heart warming and over these past 28 years there have been many that have followed in our footsteps. There is nothing so ageless or as satisfying as providing shelter for yourself and your family. And that is what we did...with the help of family, friends and neighbors. Many hands...many BBQ's...and many a cold beverage was shared as we built a house in Spring Valley!
But a funny thing happened to this young and naïve couple from the city who came to Spring Valley to build a house...instead we built a home! We built a home where we raised two wonderful kids (now grown)! We've become involved with our community...we've fallen more in love with each other and with this wonderful little piece of Northern California than we could have ever thought possible...28 years ago!
