About The Inspector

Charley Newhouse, owner of Caliper Home Inspections, is an Oregon native and long time Portland resident. A graduate of Portland State University, he spent 13 years in the construction industry before transitioning to home inspection. His years of building experience are invaluable to him as an inspector - knowing exactly how a house should be built from the ground up is instrumental in identifying when things haven't been constructed or maintained properly. Charley is a second generation carpenter, a licensed contractor, an Oregon Certified Home Inspector, a member of the American Society of Home Inspectors, a certified Home Energy Score Assessor, and a trained radon measurement provider. When not working, Charley enjoys woodworking and camping. He lives in the Montavilla neighborhood of Portland with his wife Sarah and their dog Gizmo.
