Resource List for Fishhawk Lake Members

 Fishhawk Lake

This is a private lake for members only to use
no public access, thank you for respecting that

“Your Gateway to the Lake!”

It seems that whenever a question comes up as to who to use locally or within a reasonable cost/distance for many types of services, I get a call from clients both past and present. Where do you go to get a load of firewood? Who do you know that can repair/replace a roof?  Do you know anyone who can cut down a tree for me? Who do you use for pest control?  Where is a good place to eat? These are typical questions that come up.

 I have compiled a list of resources that I add to as I find other companies, or small businesses that I’ve personally used or who have been pre-qualified by a homeowner in our community. If a question comes up that I can’t answer or don’t have a resource person for that particular need, I’ll either guide the person to someone who does know or call my office in Vernonia (503) 429-6203 because they’ve been in business for over 25 years and can help me, too. I’ve been asked about real estate attorneys, granite experts, where the nearest hardware store is, local builders–you name it!

The following is a basic list of resources in alpabetical order according to the service provided. If you care to add to it, please send me an e-mail and I would be happy to share that information so long as you’ve used to resource or know someone from our Fishhawk Lake community who can recommend them.

Resource List

The following contractors have worked at Fishhawk Lake.  It is the member’s responsibility to obtain current licensing, bonding and insurance (and other appropriate) information from the contractor/company before hiring. I have also decided to add some other resources that people ask about on a regular basis (like local restaurants, for example). See below in alphabetical order.

  6. Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Appreciate it!

    • Sorry it’s taken awhile to reply! I love WordPress. I have a number of blogging/websites that I belong to. Some free, some paid. Variety–that is one of the keys! Learning about good Search Engine Optimization skills is another key. Good luck!

  7. Hey there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m undoubtedly enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.
