NEW CONSTRUCTION COMPANY OPENING IN BROOKINGS

By Leah Weissman

Pilot staff writer

Brookings-Harbor residents looking to remodel – or just just touch up – their homes have a new construction company to turn to.

Lance Kessler, son of Kurt Kessler of Kurt Kessler Kustom Builder in Brookings, recently started his own self-employed construction company called Lance Kessler Construction Incorporated.

"I do all the construction – mainly building new homes, commercial buildings, and doing remodel and repairs," Kessler said. "I specialize in custom finish work, cabinets, siding and framing."

Kessler said he's been involved in the construction field since he was 13-years-old.

"I love doing this," he said. "I especially like the design and finish work, which entails doing handrails, installing trims throughout the whole house and the such."

After starting his home-based company six months ago in Astoria, Kessler said he and his wife decided to move back to his hometown of Brookings two days ago to be closer to family.

"I learned a lot of new techniques that haven't maybe been used in Brookings, such as building country Victorian homes," Kessler said. "I can provide a lot of talents that haven't been seen here, and I know special weather proofing techniques – which can come in handy now."

Interested Curry County residents can call Kessler between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. any day of the week at (541) 469-9616.

Kessler said he is happy to provide free quotes.

  • Jobs report may test market's complacency
    The U.S. stock market has been quiet this week - too quiet. Wall Street has traded in a tight range of late, with both volatility and trading volumes drying up as the earnings season winds down and Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's recent Congressional testimony delivered no surprises. About 238,000 jobs are expected to have been added in February, according to the non-farm payroll report that will be released on Friday, down from the 257,000 added in January. "Economic data will be the biggest driver of market moves over the next month, and the key one is the jobs report," said Jim McDonald, chief investment strategist at Chicago-based Northern Trust Asset Management.
  • U.S. economy slowed in fourth quarter, but growth outlook still favorable
    U.S. economic growth braked more sharply than initially thought in the fourth quarter amid a moderate increase in business inventories and a wider trade deficit, but strong domestic demand brightened the outlook. Gross domestic product expanded at a 2.2 percent annual pace, revised down from the 2.6 percent pace estimated last month, the Commerce Department said on Friday. The economy grew at a 5 percent rate in the third quarter. Businesses accumulated $88.4 billion worth of inventory in the fourth quarter, far less than the $113.1 billion the government had estimated last month.
  • Dudley, top U.S. economists urge later Fed rate hike
    Raising interest rates too late is safer than acting too early, an influential Federal Reserve official said on Friday, endorsing a high-profile research paper that argues the U.S. economy, given time, can rebound to the strong growth rate to which Americans are accustomed. The paper by four top U.S. economists, presented on Friday to a roomful of powerful central bankers in New York, argues the Fed would be wise to keep rates at rock bottom for longer than planned and then tighten monetary policy more aggressively. New York Fed President William Dudley, who offered a critique of the paper, cited currently low inflation and warned against being too anxious to tighten monetary policy. The U.S. central bank is in the global spotlight as it weighs when to lift rates after more than six years near zero, and how quickly to tighten policy thereafter.
