We hired Okanagan Custom Homes/Joe Wackerbauer to build our retirement-dream home in rural Penticton in 2017/2018. We are extremely pleased with the final product and their work. The craftsmanship of the house is second to none and all the trades Joe employs were professional, respectful and all did outstanding work. Joe employs all his own tradespeople so no problem getting the work done when it needed to be done. We built this house remotely while we still lived in Vancouver and Joe did an awesome job of keeping us informed and guiding us through the process (1st new home build for us). Joe was highly recommended to us and we would not hesitate to pass along that recommendation. Thanks Joe for building our dream home!!
Marvin Windows & Doors of Kelowna
Joe is a professional that I respect, Marvin Windows has had the opportunity to supply windows and doors to a number of his projects. His knowledge for his projects are unparalleled in the industry, and his respect for his customer and suppliers is top notch.
Okanagon Custom Homes built us a home on the lake in Summerland. My husband and I were extremely pleased with the craftmanship work that was put into our home. The home was built a few years ago and we still have no complaints. But what really made the difference was the service. Joe always had our best interests at heart. He made sure we were happy before finishing anything. He was not afraid to questions plans that he felt were not suitable. I would highly recommend Joe and his crew at Okanagon Custom Homes for your building needs.
Okanagan Custom Homes was hired to renovate an existing bar/restaurant space into a functioning commercial craft distillery. On my own I had struggled to get the professionals needed and the fair prices required to undertake this project. Joe Wackerbauer managed the project and with the relationships he has developed over his many years in business was able to get the professionals we needed to undertake all of the electrical, mechanical and plumbing needs required at fair rates. I was glad to have him in my corner...
We have chosen Okanagan Custom Homes to do both large and small projects in our home. No matter the size of the job, Joe Wackerbauer and his crews deliver high quality work in a professional manner. Joe meets deadlines and keeps careful track of expenses in detailed invoicing. His wide network within the world of construction allows him to access to top-notch tradespeople and to source out materials at reasonable costs. What really sets Joe apart is his personable style. He is very easy to work with and calmly and creatively solves the problems that inevitably emerge. To date, we’ve hired Okanagan Customer Homes for following separate projects: • Adding a media room with a cantilevered balcony over our garage (2011) • Replacing our weathered spruce deck with a cedar deck on a firm foundation with a concrete platform for a hot tub (2011) •Reno work on our ensuite bath and addition of patio door and balcony off the master bedroom (2015) • Assistance with our kitchen reno including all wiring and drywalling (2016)
When we decided to lift our house and add a basement, I got 5 quotes from various builders in our area. I explained our needs and our financial constraints. We knew we didnt have the capital to completely finish our project but had a goal to do as much as possible within our budget. Most of the builders were close to double what we anticipated and either told us outright that what we wanted couldnt be done or they didnt wish to work within our parameters. Lifting a house and adding 1200 additional sq ft. was a daunting undertaking and we envisioned all the horror scenarios you see on hgtv. Thankfully, Okanagan Custom homes listened to what we wanted to do and was willing to work with us to achieve our goal. Joe provided us with regular invoices so we could stay on top of the costs and we got our house raised, dug out, put back down and framed in and plumbed within our budget. His guys always tidied up the mess before the end of day and were always able to answer my many questions. It took some time after they did the hard stuff but we now have a fully functional 2 spare rooms, family room, new furnace and laundry room as well as a second bathroom. I would not hesitate to recommend Okanagan Custom Homes to anyone who asks me about our reno.
I was privileged to have Joe and his team undertake and complete the extensive renovation of my home. He is meticulous, professional, personable and worked closely with me to ensure the budget stayed within reasonable limits - there is always the unexpected when renovating an older home. I am more than thrilled and extremely satisfied with the final results - the workmanship is impeccable. Joe came highly recommended to me by his colleagues and I do not hesitate to pass on that same high recommendation. Thanks Joe for making my home more beautiful than I imagined!
