Building Relationships One Home At A Time
When my husband and I retired and wanted to move to Bend in 2008, we began an arduous search for the perfect builder in Central Oregon. We found that builder in Nate Powell. We examined the work of many builders, narrowed our choices based on workmanship, then interviewed potential candidates. We checked references and happily decided on Nate and Janey to build our dream home. We’ve never had a moment of regret. The Powells are very organized and kept us on track and on budget. Since we were still living in Portland during the construction, it was important that our trips over to check on progress and choose finishes were efficient. We never felt there was a waste of time, and if there was any problem with material or a subcontractor, Nate dealt with it without worrying us. We found Nate and Janey to be scrupulously honest and hardworking. And fun – we ended our year-long business relationship with the Powells feeling like we had made new friends. We’ve been in our home for 5 years now and love it as we did the day we moved in. Nate and Janey built a beautiful, quality home for us, and we’re grateful for the care they took every day.

In Nate Powell we found a builder who not only created an outstanding product for us, but one who was also: easy to work with; provided superb coordination and supervision of his subcontractors; stayed closely involved with the day-to-day work on-site; expertly incorporated our own ideas into the project (while graciously steering us away from potential mistakes); kept us informed of progress; seamlessly handled unexpected problems; and brought our beautiful home to completion precisely on schedule and within original cost projections. Perhaps the best testament to our great satisfaction with Powell Builders is that 6 years after completion of our original house, we again contracted Nate to build a 1400 sq. ft. guest addition to the home—without even considering any other builder. The resulting guest wing is perfect, and looks as though it was part of the original home design. Now, 9 years later, we still love our Powell-built home, and have experienced virtually no problems with its construction and materials. If we ever needed another home constructed, we would not hesitate to go with Powell builders again.

In April, 2007, we moved into our beautiful new home built by Powell Builders, Inc. Our “building experience” was great. Nate and Janey Powell guided us step by step thru the many decisions starting with designing, cost estimating, permitting, choosing subcontractor, selecting materials & fixtures, and even picking the right paint colors for the dining room walls. The end result was (and is) a very high quality, energy efficient, low maintenance custom built home. We highly recommend using Powell Builders, Inc.
We would like to say that our building relationship with Nate Powell Builders has been a pleasure to work with Nate & Janey. Nate was honest and did just what he said he would do during the entire project. It has been a fun and exciting experience for both Butch and Sharon McPheeters. We developed a friendship based on trust and honesty in our working relationship. Janey helped with good advise also as the project moved along. Would recommend Nate and Janey again. This has been a blessing to us.

We had been to 4 different contractors over a period of 2 years with still nothing to show for all our purchased plans, permits, expenses and endless conversations with builders. Then we met Nate at Powell Builders. Within 6 weeks we had the foundation finished!! Now we have our cabin and it’s more than we even thought we could have with our budget!

We wanted to find a builder that would work with the owner as a partner and not just a contract to fulfill. We were disappointed after interviewing 3 well known builders here in Central Oregon. Then we found Nate Powell of Powell Builders, Inc. From the very start Nate worked with us as though it was his own home, caring about details that even we would have missed. The bonus is that his wife, Janey Powell, who has great ideas, was also involved in design through out the project. We are extremely satisfied and proud of our home that Nate built us and very thankful we rejected others and found the perfect builder.
Not only was the project successful, but our home won 4 awards in the 2014 Showcase of Homes here in Central Oregon. Thank you Nate and Janey for providing excellent quality, completed on time and on budget. We couldn’t have asked for more.
Nate and Janey have done many projects for us. Starting with repairing our roof to remodeling our bathroom, redoing tile floors and installing wood floors. We were out of town during some of the projects and were never concerned about them being in our house without us. Nate and Janey had many helpful suggestion with design. Janey helped us with choosing many of the materials used and searched for the perfect paint colors. They were very professional and did a fabulous job. Another added benefit was that they became friends! Nate and Janey have done many projects for us.

We had Nate with Powell Builders build us a house and we met just a few times to pick out different items. We felt totally confident that we were in good hands. The finished product was more than we expected. We enjoyed working with Nate and Janey and would not hesitate to build with them again! If you want a great product and no hassel, go with Powell Builders.
