As Maurie’s health declined, John took on outside work to keep his crew of five busy, including new construction and remodels. This eventually led to the creation of the present-day Coaster Construction. Mike Clark came on in 2001 as owner, and as Coaster expanded, it relocated and built a new shop on Elk Creek Road in 2005. Today, Coaster has evolved into a full-service construction company, specializing in large custom homes, commercial projects and remodels, while still maintaining its downtown properties. Its crew has grown significantly in the past ten years, up to fifteen full-time employees and numerous subcontractors. The company also specializes in custom cabinets and is a dealer of Canyon Creek Cabinets.
Today, the dream continues on. John’s goal was to build on the reputation and foundation of Maurie, Ray, and Nick and ensure that Coaster remained dedicated to both high-quality construction and serving the people of Cannon Beach. Committed to keeping it local, for years the company has used all local subcontractors. Through its devotion to excellent construction and to community, Coaster has continued to shape the character of Cannon Beach and the Oregon Coast.
