NEW CONSTRUCTION COMPANY OPENING IN BROOKINGS Print E-mail

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.

  • Fed nods to firmer prices yet still focused on labor weakness
    The Federal Reserve on Wednesday reaffirmed it was in no rush to raise interest rates, even as it upgraded its assessment of the U.S. economy and expressed some comfort that inflation was moving up toward its target. After a two-day meeting, Fed policymakers took note of both faster economic growth and a decline in the unemployment rate, but expressed concern about remaining slack in the labor market. "Labor market conditions improved, with the unemployment rate declining further," the Fed said in a statement. "However, a range of labor market indicators suggests that there remains significant underutilization of labor resources."
  • Argentina fails to reach debt agreement, default imminent
    BUENOS AIRES/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Argentina will default on its debt within hours after talks with holdout creditors broke down on Wednesday. As the clocked ticked toward a midnight (0400 GMT) deadline, Economy Minister Axel Kicillof stuck firmly to the government line, repeatedly denigrating the holdouts as "vultures" after two days of intense negotiations. Argentine banks scrambled to put together a proposal to buy out the non-performing debt held by hedge funds and avert a default. It also marks a set-back to the Buenos Aires government's attempts to return to global credit markets.
  • U.S. economy back on track with strong second-quarter rebound
