Oaklynn Owners Gary O. & Mona L. Allen

Gary & Mona are both farm kids from Idaho, in 1983 they moved with their little family to San Diego where Gary quickly learned the building trade, starting with earth work and sub-division infastructure and building up from there.  In 1993 they moved to Redmond to pursue a future in Central Oregon.  They were glad to get a little closer to their extended families in Idaho and raise their children in a smaller city with a true sense of community.

Gary started his career in Redmond with as General Contractor of Red Hawk subdivision (19th & Ivy) and Black Hawk subdivision (which surrounds and includes the groundwork for Vern Patrick Elementary).  In 1996 Gary and Mona decided to open Oaklynn Constuction.  While grateful for the experience he gained working for others, it was time to strike out on their own and pursue their goals.  A small bit of trivia, the name Oaklynn has nothing to do with an Oak tree and is actually a combination of Gary & Mona’s middle names.

Not just custom home builders, Gary and Mona have supported the schools and the community as their 6 children have and continue to excel in Redmond’s schools and athletics.  The oldest two children returned to Redmond after completing college (and finding husbands to join in the trade) to raise their own families.  They currently have a son majoring in Civil Engineering, a daughter who wants to teach our kids, and a son-in-law who plans to become a Landscape Architect.  With any luck they will join the family upon graduation and broaden the scope of skills available to our family and the community.  The youngest two are living at home and enjoy helping Dad on the jobsite whenever school schedule allows.
