Jubi Steinhauer

Jubi Steinhauer

Born and raised in the Okanagan valley, Jubi is a well educated, self taught builder who has his journeyman's equivalency. Over the past decade, the melding of Jubi’s artistic and entrepreneurial background, along with his organized and detail oriented sensibilities, have made him an accomplished builder and craftsman. His personal interest in sustainable building practices and quality sets him apart as someone who will create a home with the same passion and conscientiousness as if he was building for his own family. He will always put in the extra effort required to make sure his clients needs and desires are met. Jubi is easy to get along with and has a natural way with people which allows a feeling of trust and understanding to quickly develop. When not building Jubi and his family enjoy the many recreational opportunities that the Okanagan lifestyle has to offer, from team sports to backcountry skiing.

Here are some important points to outline the way in which we handle our projects:

  • Thoughtful and thorough design and construction management, including site specific, and passive design considerations, to increase efficiency and minimize material use.
  • The use of local materials and trades people whenever possible to help stimulate local economies, and minimize transportation costs to the home site.
  • Advanced framing and engineering to maximize the buildings strength and stability, while minizing its energy use.
  • The use of Geothermal, Solar, and other green technologies for your home’s mechanical systems, if applicable to the project.
  • Quality construction and ecological practices to help reduce the life cycle costs of your home.
  • A clean and organized job site will be maintained to ensure the home is healthy to live in, and to reinforce best practices amongst the projects trades and suppliers.
  • A simple waste management system that seperates the garbage and recycling, and uses Kelowna's advanced landfill services to their full potential.
  • A clear and transparent accounting system that will allow you to see how your money is being spent, and working together with your choices, determine the budget outcome.
  • Open and honest communication will be maintained to ensure that the clients' needs and desires are met, and to help the project run smoothly, and be enjoyable for everyone involved.
