Who is Captain Possible?

I grew up in North Dakota, then moved to Colorado for the mountains. Now I reside in Bend for the wonderful quality of life.

Colorado's Aspen/Snowmass winters were traditionally slow for the building industry. I gravitated to the snow industry during those months. It was then that I taught snowboarding, attaining the maximum certification in the minimum time possible. Soon I became the local children’s snowboard supervisor and team leader for the next few years. I then seized an opportunity to coordinate the entire kids and teens division of the snowboard school for the Aspen Skiing Company. I supervised 150 instructors, trained instructors on the team and guided the program from 35 to nearly 400 students a day. I spent years volunteering for Grassroots (a program for inner city youth), participated in Aspen's Winterskol Snowsculpting event for 12 consecutive years, while earning First Prize in one event, and many hours of frozen hands.

If you have spent time enjoying Winterfest here in Bend, maybe you have seen a few of my massive snowsculptures. I have participated in Ignite Bend, inspiring children, adults and other artists through my presentation entitled “100 30-minute Frogs. A Story of Redemption, one Frog at a time." Maybe you have seen me working with the non-profit, Base Camp Studio.

Casually around Bend, you may see me with my family walking or hiking along with Biscuit the dog, riding our mountain bikes, playing on the river, the lakes or snowboarding. We spend time doing yoga being stretchy and strong so that we can keep doing all the fun stuff.

Whenever possible, I do not rely on debt or credit in order to have or run Captain Possible. In this manner, I create all invoices for the previous week ASAP. I pay all subcontractors ASAP. I encourage clients to participate in this debt-free model of running my business.

Captain Possible (my alter ego and business) is a general contractor, a remodeler located here in Bend, Oregon. Originally from North Dakota, followed by 20 years in Colorado,  and now Bend Oregon since 2009.

I approach our relationship using an educational model to create an understanding of each service provided. In this way, expectations will be appropriately set for our group effort. The outcome exceeds your vision.

 

Captain Possible, Inc. is a licensed, bonded and insured contractor in Bend, Oregon.

Condo Remodel

Pauly has a real gift for seeing the diamond in the rough and taking a project to fruition. His tremendous attention to detail is apparent in my home. Pauly definately has a keen eye for quality. Lastly and possibly most important of all, Pauly's experience and foresight saved me money and time as he simply works with you and your budget. I know I was lucky to have his expertise when remodeling my home.

Office and Storage

We asked Captain Possible if he could convert our single car garage into a home office and create some storage for all our bikes and gear. He asked all the right questions, steered us in all the right directions and the result was amazing. We still show it off to all our house guests. Pauly has a stellar spectrum of skills and pays incredible attention to detail. He went above and beyond... even doing some touch up painting around the exterior of our house. I wouldn't hesitate recommending him for anything from the simplest of things to the most complex building challenges.

Rental Refreshers

Captain Possible, Pauly, did 3 remodels on old westside rental homes for us this summer...they were horrible and we were on a strict budget. Pauly listened and came in full speed to get it done quickly so we didn't lose rent, and stayed on budget. He had all his tools organized and kept things clean and organized every night. He worked with both personalities of Mike and me and we would both recommend him 100% to anyone.

Art Studio

Wanted to thank you again for all your efforts on our art room. At this moment in time, every square inch is being used for one project or another from a huge picture on my big easel to the top of the work bench which holds various glass pieces in states of completion to my desk which is full of more glasses being finished for shipping. It is perfect. Oh yes the canvas and paper cabinet you built is worth its weight in gold.........and we all know how heavy THAT hummer is.....flashes of you and Jim moving it into place.
This has made my life and Jim's so much easier.
