“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”
- Henry Ford
With the low standards and practices associated with residential contracting, we have developed and implemented numerous programs within our company to rise above. They include a Standards and Procedures Policy, an eight point Company Ettiquette policy, an Employee Manual we update yearly, specific Job Descriptions and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) associated with each position. We aimn to always act professionally, strive for excellence and provide each customer with that ‘extra-mile’ service we believe they deserve.

Jana Vacek– Office Manager
“I have been working in the construction field over 22 years; as a carpenter and as a project manager. My favorite areas are: furniture quality carpentry in detail specific tasks like stairs, cabinetry, moldings, trim… and a life-long interest in renewable energy technology.
Recently my interests have shifted towards sustainability in building and energy efficiency. I believe that as a society we must be more responsible for our resource usage. I see this shift in consciousness and know that I have a great deal to offer on how we interface with our environment. I love the challenge of remodeling and home performance retrofitting, although it can be difficult work at times, when I finish a job I leave our clients with a piece of myself that they will continue to enjoy long after.
When not working I enjoy playing music with my band, hiking and climbing in the mountains with my wife and dogs, donating my time to projects like; Rampathon and the JRMD/YRWD which is involved in building homes, schools and an orphanage in Burundi Africa, and creating a wonderful home for my first child to come home to.”
