The pre construction phase is one of the most critical phases of a construction project. During pre-construction, we will explore and /or advise on the theme of the style of construction for your specific project, establish a budget, and scheduling.
From this we develop a plan for work to be implemented during construction and advise both clients and trades as to the best use of resources to provide the best value without compromising quality.
Okanagan Custom Homes works jointly with clients, design professionals, and construction trades to develop this path for success of your dream home.
What we provide is a ten step Pre-Construction Service:
1. Meetings with client to assimilate project overview
2. Develop concept design and Master plan
3. Preliminary drawings
4. Develop a list of specifications with our clients
5. Breakdown construction components to achieve and accurate budget number
6. Advise on implementing alternate strategies for Built Green construction techniques
7. Review and advise on conditions of construction site, (riparian issues, accessibility, etc.)
8. Site mapping: optimum positioning of home on site, layout, survey
9. Provide building estimates
10. Set tentative timelines and implementation dates
At this point a full contract may be tailored to your specific project.
Okanagan Custom Homes has deep roots in the Okanagan that allowed Joe Wackerbauer to become involved and interested in Construction at a very early age.
Joe spent his summers and weekends working in the family construction business learning his trade from his father Wilf Wackerbauer who was an accomplished Master Carpenter, Cabinet Maker and his Uncle Pete Wackerbauer who was also a Master Finisher.
In 1986 Joe received his journeyman status and through the last twenty five years has been well schooled in all aspects of construction focused on the Luxury Home market.
As a General Contractor, and a Licensed Residential Builder Joe Wackerbauer and his family believe in giving back to the community and to that end Joe has been a volunteer leader with the Scouts Canada and a long time member of the Canadian Home Builders Association, South Okanagan. Joes wife is a volunteers for Noah`s Wish, a disaster response team for animals.
Our at vision at Okanagan Custom Homesis the pursuit of excellence by distinguishing ourselves as the premier Okanagan Custom Home builder, with quality workmanship and personalized service.
Our Mission at Okanagan Custom Homesis to build long term relationships by listening and treating all clients with integrity and respect. At Okanagan Custom Homes we will deliver cost effective, energy efficient homes and with our attention to detail, we set the standard for all others to follow in the Okanagan.
I am happy to recommend Joe Wackerbauer for his skills and his professional manner. He’s an excellent team player and we have enjoyed having him work on our home”
Carolyn Cross, West Vancouver.
“I have been more than pleased with his work and find him to be polite, knowledgeable, competent and helpful with suggestions and ideas as a finishing carpenter”
Diane McCausland, Summerland, B.C
“Joe Wackerbauer was consistently cooperative, responsible, polite and highly dependable. He often made creative suggestions to resolve problems that we discussed during my site visits. I was not the least concerned about the infrequency of my visits because I knew the construction was in good hands.” “Joe recorded on camera many phases of the construction that I was not there to see. The photos have proved invaluable in many of my post-construction projects.” “When another carpenter was working on one of those projects, he commented that Joe is famous in the Valley for his perfect right angles, so there would be no problem in fitting in the new fixtures.” Linda Sears, Naramata, B.C
“During the construction several visitors, some being in the construction field, commented on the excellent workmanship that was going into our home.” “When the cabinet maker installed our cabinets he commented that the installation was a pleasure because all the walls were very true. The building inspector commented that if all homes were built this well he would be out of work.” “We found Joe Wackerbauer very personable and easy to work with, even when we made changes to the original plans. Our home was completed on time and there were no deficiencies to be dealt with.”
Lionel & Joan Coleman, Summerland, B.C
I have dealt with Joe and his father (now deceased) over many years and on many diverse projects including additions to outbuildings on my hobby farm, and an addition /renovation to my 100 year old residence.
The latest project, which Joe directed, was the addition of two large, en suite bedrooms to convert my home to a bed and breakfast. This reno/addition was unique in that it required the marriage of today’s building code with the elements of a structure built in 1906. Joe's innovative ability made this project remarkably successful.
Joe approached this and our other projects with total professionalism. His insistence on precision and his no "corner cutting" attitude are a tribute to his trade. This project was on budget with no time wasted.
