Scott Bowles


Scott grew up in a small logging town in Idaho where he spent a lot of time in the woods.
Growing up Scott and his mom would look in the Sunday paper for the house plan of the week. They would study the plan and talk about changes that would make the plans better. When he reached High School, he took drafting to learn more about the design process of a home. Scott then attended and graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architecture.
After graduating he returned home and went into the family logging business. Then, went to work at the lumber mill where his grandfather had retired from. After several years, Scott knew what he didn’t want to do for the rest of his life so, he got a job in Vancouver, WA doing estimating and contractor sales for a lumber supplier.
After that, Scott spent the next couple of years exporting homes overseas. He was sending homes to Japan, China, Russia and even had a 50-lot subdivision in Korea. While overseeing the estimating, construction and shipment logistics for these jobs he went back to college on his lunch hour to learn Japanese. This helped him understand his client’s needs. 
Scott then had a chance to work for a local construction company. With hard work he moved into the Operations Manager position while the company grew from 50 homes to building over 1,000 homes a year. 

After 12 years working on subdivisions and production homes, Scott decided to make a switch to custom homes. Working with the clients closely to build their dream homes had an appeal and sense of accomplishment that he enjoys. Scott has built many Award Winning Street of Dreams Homes and even won Best of Show.  In 2018, he was named Builder of the Year. 

Scott’s friendship with Mike and their similarities made working together a true joy that will be missed

On January 18, 2022, Mike Harn lost his battle with colon cancer. He was the driving force behind Anlon, and we carry him in our hearts as we continue building Anlon Homes with his passion, vision, and commitment to excellence.

Mike was the son of an HVAC contractor, and started his career as a child laying ductwork on his dad’s construction jobs.

Mike served in the Army, and upon his return to Portland, he immediately went back to what he knew and loved: building and developing the best homes in the Metro Portland Area. Mike grew his business through his hard work and dedication to a transparent process with open communication and a desire to always do the right thing by his clients.

As his reputation for building excellence grew, he started Anlon Construction, and soon after met his wife Brianna. Brianna was the driving force behind Anlon’s relationship based business model. As the company grew, so did his family. Mike has 2 incredible daughters, who were the light in Mike’s ever-smiling eyes.


“I wanted a company that my wife, my kids and I can all be proud of. We learn something new every day, and every day we try to improve. I am one of the lucky ones. I truly get to say that I love what I do.” – Mike Harn


We continue to lean into Mike’s incredible spirit of excellence as inspiration for Anlon’s future.
