Jeff Metke

For Jeff Metke, woodworking and remodeling homes is more than just an occupation. It’s a way of life. Ever since his grandmother handed him a hammer at the tender age of three, carpentry became Metke’s passion. “In high school, I invested in tools while everyone else was out buying cars,” he remembers. “I put myself through college building furniture and cabinets.” After graduating from Washington State University with a degree in Construction Management, he launched Metke Remodeling. Since then, the company has grown from a small outfit that concentrated on doors and interior finish carpentry into a full-service Design Build firm with 15 skilled employees. “I honestly love to dream up something and then create it,” he says. “My staff and I are truly passionate about our work. When a client walks in to see the finished job and their jaw drops to the floor, that’s what we live for.”
