Phase one quote icon

All my life, people have told me ‘No. That’s too expensive. That’s too hard. That’s too much work.’ I met CJ, and he didn’t say ‘No’ to anything, he just figured out how much it would cost.

Pam Crane
Owner / Founder

From a young age Pam loved redesigning different spaces for herself, friends and family. After selling her technology business in 2010, she decided to follow that passion and capitalize on the experience she had gained while flipping houses with her husband over the past 25 years.

Through this process, Pam discovered a real affinity for design, specifically around drafting and spatial design, as it relates to construction. Creating an atmosphere where construction is an experience has become a lifelong pursuit for Pam.

She also found an amazing business partner in CJ!

CJ is as determined as she is to create a culture focused on elevating the construction experience by addressing the negative stigmas associated with this industry. Part of this focus is an emphasis on training and developing young people in a way that creates excitement around construction. One of their employees is now pursuing her general contractors license. For Pam, that is the win.

When she is not pursuing this dream, Pam enjoys yoga, coffee (strong), vodka tonics (weak), candles, flowers, music, shopping, traveling, reading and spending time with friends & family. She is the mother of four; one son, one daughter, one retriever & a sheltie!
