Renovations & Relationship Building

Hiring a contractor especially for your home renovations should not be a game of competitive bidding but rather a game of getting to know the relationship compatibility between you and the potential builder.

All homeowners need a great team of trades people to call on….not just this time but over the course of your lifetime as a homeowner. It is dangerous to hire on price alone.

Barnabas believes in building long-term relationships and will offer the best price and value that he can. He will also offer you a price based on experience and expertise so that everything required is done properly and considered in that cost estimate. His responsibility is to get your job done on budget while also being responsible enough to stay in business to support you in the long-term.

Another quote by a satisfied long-term client:

2008 – 2011 “Barnabas the Builder is an excellent craftsman and always willing to offer suggestions on how to improve your project and/or how to reduce costs. He has done three projects for me now – one outdoor (replaced old rotting deck with a hardwood deck –> changed from my original idea of using one of the composite materials on the market. It is BEAUTIFUL and will last a lifetime!) and two indoor (1. rec room carpet replaced with laminate flooring and 2. removed a brick faux wall and changed to an up-to-date fireplace wall with two bookcases and a new broom closet) projects. It is great having such a knowledgeable, personable and friendly contractor. Thank you for these jobs and future jobs. – A satisfied customer, Jenny” – Jennie Wolter

Custom Cabinet – Wasa Guest House

Barnabas is in Kelowna offering free consultations and quotes for Renovations and custom woodwork.

The Wasa Lake guest house is done and I will be posting photos over the coming weeks as I compile and create an album. This is the custom cabinet with a Butcher block counter top that Barnabas built on site for his client. The dark on the doors are a screen to allow remotes to operate the entertainment units that will be stored inside.

Here are some of the in construction photos:

Re: Reference for Barnabas The Builder

To Whom It May Concern:

We had the privilege of working with both Barnabas and Nicole on a home renovation; both were exceptional.

Barnabas is a skilled contractor equipped to provide quality renovation and new construction. He is quick, efficient and honest. Our home renovation went as planned and we are more than satisfied with the outcome.

Typical to all renovations, there were a number of challenges. Barnabas easily overcame those challenges. He continually coordinated his work with other trades showing respect for their work and time. Also, he worked within our schedule and budget.

Nicole kept schedules coordinated and invoices up to date. There were never any surprises.

We appreciated the workmanship of both Barnabas and Nicole and hope to continue utilizing their services.

Yours truly,

Faye & Jeff Strong

Is A Messy Job Site Acceptable?

A messy job site is never acceptable and IS NOT something you should just expect to put up with during a renovation project. Not only is a messy job site unsafe it is also an indication of an inefficient job site which translates to two things – over run on time which means the general chaos lasts longer and also overrun on costs if you have gone with a time and material builder agreement vs a fixed price agreement.

Barnabas keeps his job sites neat and tidy – renovations are disruptive and it’s critical for keeping everybody happy during the renovations.
