Bluejacket Builders, LLC was founded by US Navy Veteran, Nick Obrochta. Nick started working in carpentry at a very young age alongside his father who is a lifelong carpenter by trade. After high school, he entered the US Navy as a Hull Maintenance Technician (HT). Nick attended welding school for his job in the Navy and graduated top of his class in Navy "C" School prior to heading out on the fleet to serve aboard the USS Carter Hall (LSD-50). After his career as a Recruiter for the Navy Reserves, Nick moved into the HVAC industry for 8 years. He continued his industry advancement in Facilities Maintenance for a decade, and then moved up to Facilities Management.
A few years of office work in Management work led Nick to the realization that his true passion is working with his hands and remodeling homes. This realization is what propelled Nick to make the jump to start Bluejacket Builders in 2021. As soon as word was out, the schedule filled up very quickly. In a matter of two years, Bluejacket has gained 7 employees, and has established an incredible repeat client base. As we enter our 4th year, Bluejacket Builders continued growth is due to the ability to provide homeowners with amazing custom spaces!
Bluejacket Builders is looking forward to you joining the Bluejacket family of clients in the years to come!

My favorite part about what we do is when I get to walk into a space for the first time and I can visualize what it can be before we even swing a hammer. When we walk through a finished space - knowing what it started out as - there is no better feeling than being able to deliver that vision to our awesome customers!
Outside of work, I love spending time with family, golfing, camping, watching my son play Hockey, and playing Drums in my band - Tallboy (Tallboymke.com)
Deb is not only our office manager and admin, she is also an incredibly talented interior decorator, working with out clients to provide guidance on finishes and project vision!
Outside of work, Deb enjoys watching her three children play all the sports, cooking and taking long walks with her oversized puppy, who clients can often hear barking in the background during meetings.

My favorite thing about what we do is that nothing we do is cookie-cutter. When we go into a new space we completely customize everything to fit the needs of our clients. Many times this allows me to get creative and build some type of custom cabinet, built-in, etc. It is very rewarding knowing that something I built will be enjoyed by others for many years to come.
Outside of work (and when I’m not building something in my wood shop) I enjoy golfing, trying new foods/restaurants with my fiancé and spending time with family & friends.
Best part of my Job is watching the space transform with each step of the process. Seeing it go from a part a house to becoming part of the home they always wanted.
After work is done, I like to spend my free time outdoors as much as I can; hunting, hiking and fishing. Also I enjoy being involved by volunteering in local theaters by helping backstage building sets and helping on run crew and occasionally acting onstage when I can.
What I enjoy at work is framing basements and watching a project go from a blank space to the final product. It is a great feeling to be part of watching it all come together.
Outside of work, I enjoy working on my truck and keeping it clean and being outside.
