Serving Eastern Washington & North Idaho
At UBuildIt-Spokane, we take pride in seeing our client take on the challenge to build their home like a pro and avoid future frustrations of undoing someone else's mistakes by overseeing their own home building process. What is more, as an owner-builder, you get to add extra touches that will make your home special to you.
We understand the incredible feeling owning something you built yourself brings, and for decades now we have helped thousands like you travel the owner-builder journey successfully.
We take you through the womb-to-tomb process of planning and building, from identifying a build site, creating house plans, choosing materials, to finding qualified and experienced subcontractors.
Choose Your Level of Involvement
In our standard program, you can choose to do as much or as little of the actual work yourself and have qualified subcontractors do the rest.
Too busy with life or you currently live out of the area? We offer the UBuildIt Plus package, where we manage the subcontractors for you. Either way, you are fully responsible for all critical decisions, you receive full disclosure, and you directly control the money for your project.
Our full range of services includes:
Our goal? To ensure that you get more value for your money than if you used a regular contractor.

Paul Hamre - Owner
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.
