Family doubles-up on business affairs

It’s a family affair. Two new businesses – Outdoor Living Spaces and Pirate Energy – share not only the same building at 16160 Highway 101, but also some of the same relatives.

Pirate Energy is owned and operated by Harold Bailey, with the help of family members including his wife Lisa, and provides batteries and supplies for autos, trucks, boats, RVs, ATVs, motorcycles, golf carts, solar applications and more.

Outdoor Living Spaces, owned and run by Bailey’s sons, Ryan Mattes and Robert Bailey, offers aluminum awnings, patio and screen rooms, carports, and decks.

Bailey has been in the business of selling and maintaining batteries and power systems for 21 years at another location, Oceanview Drive and Highway 101. He gives as examples of prior installations, two power systems for Ted Freeman of Freeman Rock and the revamp of the generator at the Chetco River Inn.

“I can sell and install home generators, provide components and propane hose, plus fill propane tanks,” Bailey said.

“The propane generators I sell will automatically provide power within eight seconds when the power goes off and, when the power comes back on, it immediately switches to Coos-Curry Electric, cools off, and shuts down.”

He added, “I sell batteries for everything, and I also buy scrap batteries.”

Mattes and Robert Bailey, who just started their business last month, displayed a sample of the Alumawood used in the construction of the patios, carports, and decks that they install to order. Mattes pointed out that the long-lasting material is almost indestructible, and will enhance the use and appearance of decks and patios, with little maintenance, for a lifetime.

The Baileys, Mattes, and the rest of the family have issued an invitation to one and all, old friends and new, to stop in to fill propane tanks or just drop by to visit their showroom next to Blue Star Gas.

Both businesses are open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and may be contacted by calling 541-251-1323.
