Building Brookings

Ken Ketcham stands outside Chetco Inn with models of buildings he built, including Capella by the Sea.

“I’ve always had a hobby,”  said Ken Ketcham. 

The 81-year-old sits on a bench in the lobby of the Chetco Inn Residential Care building, and looks at the four wooden models sitting on the table across from him — including one of the very building he’s sitting in. 

“It all started a year ago,” Ketcham said. “I was laying around and I thought, ‘Heck, I could do something.’ I remodeled this building (the Chetco Inn) in 1988, and I had the blueprints, so I built a model of it. And then another, and then another.”

A construction worker for 50 years, Ketcham moved to Brookings in 1970 from Montana, his home state, after initially coming to the town to visit his mother.
