Lorne & Larisa Strobel
Twenty-seven years of marriage has taught them a lot about each other. They can hang wallpaper and tell jokes at the same time. Hand motions, sound effects and partial sentences which the other one can finish, serve as a clear language between them as designs for the next project begin to take shape. Lorne holds over 30 years of meticulous building experience and can manufacture basically anything Larisa’s imagination creates. Together they can walk through a set of blueprints to clearly visualize and subsequently describe the end result for the homeowner. These are invaluable skills which has served them incredibly well for their life’s passion of renovating homes. Together, they address every detail so the finished product will be completed as close to perfection as they can make it.
They moved to the North Okanagan six years ago from their farm in West-Central Saskatchewan and brought their dream along with a vast array of acquired skills to head up a renovation company. It is with such joy and thankfulness that they step out of anonymity, surrounded by an incredibly talented crew who hold the same work ethic and life values which accurately represent what Plumbline is all about.
Josh Dickau casually carries 20 years of building experience in his back pocket. The scope of his experiential knowledge in putting together every aspect of a home renovation is something that we are so proud to partner with. Staying in communication with our clients as well as seeing our projects through to completion are abilities that are valued in the construction community; in Josh, we have both. His expertise in tile setting, siding houses, installing millwork, placing rafters, or pouring concrete along with every other detail of constructing an entire home, is having a wealth of skill and knowledge at our disposal. We are incredibly blessed to have Josh help move our company forward.
Evan rounds out the board room table of co-directors and he brings with him a specialization which helps set our company apart. He holds over 25 years of experience in fibreglass decking, as well as building any size deck that you could want. Installation of siding, windows and doors fall within his wide- reaching net of construction skills. He also spent several years as a realtor which gives us access to a plethora of information for which we are grateful to have.
"Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.” Zechariah 4:10
