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.

  • Oil prices ease as market downplays supply threat from Yemen
    Oil prices fell over a percentage point on Friday as traders estimated that the threat of a disruption to world crude supplies from Saudi Arabia-led air strikes in Yemen was low. Goldman Sachs said in an overnight note that the strikes in Yemen would have little effect on oil supplies as the country was only a small crude exporter and tankers could avoid passing its waters to reach their ports of destination. Internationally traded Brent crude futures (LCOc1) were trading at $58.44 a barrel at 0211 GMT, down 75 cents from their last settlement. Prices soared as much as 6 percent the previous day after a Saudi-led coalition of Arab nations began strikes on Shi'ite Houthis and allied army units who have taken over much of Yemen and seek to oust President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

    Fortune magazine cited the head of the world's largest technology corporation as saying he planned to donate his estimated $785 million fortune to charity - after paying for his 10-year-old nephew's college education. "You want to be the pebble in the pond that creates the ripples for change," Cook told the magazine. Fortune estimated Cook's net worth, based on his holdings of Apple stock, at about $120 million. The 54-year-old CEO's revelation in Fortune's lengthy profile of him is an example of the increasingly public philanthropy of the world's richest people.
