Pete Slayden was born in Corvallis and grew up on a small farm outside Sublimity. As a third generation contractor growing up in the family business, Pete developed his strong work ethic and talent for problem solving at an early age. He was 15 when he began working in construction and 21 when he started working with his uncle building homes. Pete joined the family business in 2003, and became partners in Century Construction in 2005. His affinity for organization and detailed workmanship spurred him to start his own company, Slayden Homes, in 2011. Working closely with clients, supported by talented designers and architects, Pete builds warm and inspiring spaces that welcome you home again and again.
As a native Oregonian, the lure of the outdoors comes naturally to Pete. When he is not chasing after his kids Emma, Gavin and Jackson, he enjoys camping, hiking, bird hunting and mountain biking. Pete, his wife Katie and the family live in Corvallis, Oregon.
