The UBuildIt-Spokane Team
Paul Hamre: The UBuildIt-Spokane owner was born and raised in North Dakota, Paul is a third generation contractor and a graduate of the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux.
When Paul got his driver license at the age of fourteen, his contractor father gave him his first vehicle, a 1950 Ford pickup with a flathead Mercury engine. From then on through college, Paul worked every summer for the family painting and construction business where he learned the trades of painting and carpentry, and the business of contracting as well.
After earning his BA in mathematics in 1973, Paul moved to Spokane where he worked for general contractors until he started his own construction company in 1978 as a framing contractor. In 1981, he and a partner founded Hamre Construction and spent 25 years as successful public works contractors and custom home builders. In 1998 Paul read in a business journal about a great new company in Seattle called UBuildIt and immediately contacted the founder, Chuck Warrender. Within a year, Paul became one of the early UBuildIt System providers, opening the Spokane office to serve eager owner-builders in eastern Washington and north Idaho. Since then, Paul has assisted hundreds of homeowners to plan and manage their own home building project.
BJ Nakano: BJ is the office manager at UBuildIt. She has lived in Eastern Washington for the last 30 years, has a degree as a Registered Nurse, and has a passion for helping people whether in the healthcare system or in building a home.
In 2001, she built her own home with UBuildIt and now as the wife and partner of Paul Hamre, is an expert and empathetic advocate for all of our clients.
