Our founder and namesake is a fourth-generation home builder. Chris Kaiser’s great-grandfather, grandfather, and father all built homes in Fredericksburg.
Before he was a teenager, Chris followed his interest by making wood crafts in his father’s cabinet shop and selling his wares during Fredericksburg’s many festivals. By age 14, he was working after school and during summers in the cabinet shop and with this father’s carpentry crews.
Chris restored his first home on weekends during his college years. Once finished, he operated the home as a bed and breakfast for a decade. He returned to Fredericksburg after college to work with his father and refine his expertise in the roles of project management, bidding and estimating, and meeting with customers, architects, engineers, and subcontractors. He also developed his skill in drafting and design.
By age 27, Chris had comprehensive knowledge in pouring concrete foundations, framing, trim carpentry and cabinetry. He also learned the importance of careful coordination with electrical, plumbing, and other technical experts on the job site. He founded Chris Kaiser Builder, Inc. after an amicable departure from his father’s firm in 2008.
Members of the CKB team play a vital role in making Chris Builder, Inc. what it is today. The crew includes professional craftsmen with broad knowledge and skills in the home building and restoration process.Our energetic office team helps keep building schedules on track.
