Award-winning Skagit County builder will keep you busy all year, motivated with project variety

If you enjoy working with wood and other materials, enjoy project management and like variety in your career, one of Skagit County’s top builders wants to hear from you.

These days crews with Spane Buildings Inc. are enjoying the long days of summer working on the company’s wide range of projects. Fact is, owner Jim Spane and his staff could use some more help.

Having spent decades crafting quality post-frame structures around the Pacific Northwest, and building the kind of reputation most companies would love to have, the company is looking to add to its award-winning staff. If you’re looking to add to your carpentry experience, or ready to join a successful crew as a foreman, Spane wants to talk to you.

“We really promote retaining people, through education and training once they’re part of our crew,” says Bree Guico, human resources manager. “If you’re someone with integrity and craftsmanship, someone who’s hard working, we’ll put you on a path to move up.”

Family business, family feel

Things have changed in the industry since Jim Spane’s father, Victor, founded the company in 1945. One thing that hasn’t, however, is the way Spane takes pride in every project and considers its employees like members of an extended family. Many have worked for the company for years and have helped train newcomers in the Spane way of building, just like Victor trained Jim, who took over as president in 1995.

“Great people are the heart of our company and continue to be the best in the industry,” Jim Spane says.

Homes for in-laws, horses, classic cars

From one week to the next, the kind of projects Spane crews work on can change dramatically, which keeps things interesting, Jim says.

“Garages with residential apartments are really popular right now. People are needing living quarters for in-laws, elderly parents or adult children,” he adds. “Horse arenas are also in big demand, but we also do shops and garages for people with classic cars, and even your basic garages. Mind you, everything’s pretty customized. We don’t just sell a plan; our clients come in and speak to an expert about their vision.”

You’ve got security on this team

With projects on the go year-round, Spane provides consistency for a person looking to work full-time in all four seasons. Jobsites are located mostly in Skagit, Island and Snohomish counties, with hotel stays and per diems paid for jobs more than two hours away. Other great benefits include full medical and dental coverage and a 401(k) plan with company match.
