Kane Wachter
Owner

Starting at a young age Kane had always been building; tree forts with friends, go karts, furniture and even small businesses to earn money. In high school Kane stepped into his first shop class and that was when he gained a great passion for woodworking. At the age of 15 he got his first construction job framing houses which started his construction career. His passion for woodworking continues to this day and it shows in the craftsmanship of his work.

Growing up Kane learned the value of hard work from his mother and father who owned several businesses in the food industry. They showed him the balance between running a business and raising a family.

In 2017 something great was going to happen, he was expecting a son. Knowing he was going to be a father he wanted to be able to teach his children the value in doing what you love and what you’re passionate about. It had always been a goal of his to own a business to provide a solid foundation for his family and express his talents on a larger scale.

After many years of experience in the construction industry Kane finally took a great leap and pursued his passion to start Kaner Contracting.
