Our home was built in 1987 by the students of Tigard High School. There are a few things around the house that make a lot more sense now that we know this home was a school project. :) The previous tenants had lived here for 12 years. When the housing market bottomed out, they decided to purchase a home. They were smokers and thus explains all the updates (paint, carpet, linoleum) that were completed before our tenancy. The city of Tigard is divided into zones or neighborhoods. Our house is located in the Cook Park Neighborhood. Apparently, the Cook Park area is highly sought after as it hosts the largest park in the city, Cook Park (duh), which spans 79 acres and borders the Tualatin River. Cook Park is just a half mile away!
