Some folks just have building genes in their DNA. Keith Knowles, EverLife Home founder, is one of them. Keith grew up and apprenticed with a true craftsman, a father who leveraged a fine wood furniture hobby into a general contracting business. From age 12 Keith worked in his father’s firm, Robert Knowles Construction. During that time Keith was blessed to learn the construction trade from excavation and foundations to the fine finishing of a new home or remodel.
After graduating from Whitworth College with a marketing degree, Keith decided he’d apply his skills to the start-up high tech arena. The industry wasn’t as satisfying to him as home construction, so in 2005 he returned to Robert Knowles Construction. His involvement led the company to win a Silver Merit Award for Whole Home Remodel from the Portland Metro Home Builders Association. From there a stint within the solar industry winning awards like Trade Contractor of Year 2011 set Keith on a future course of client and industry accolades.
Instilled with craftsmanship and integrity, in 2017 Keith founded EverLife Home, a business run on biblical principles. The organization’s aim is creating forever homes for clients within the Custom Home, Remodeling, Aging in Place and ADU – Accessory Dwelling Unit specialties. In pursuing that vision, Keith holds Certified Aging in Place (CAPS) and Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) Specialist designations.
