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.
