Construction Services

Update after a good rain:
JOAT Construction goes ABOVE & BEYOND. After a good rain for a couple of days, Darin & Derek came by my house TWICE on Thanksgiving Day to make sure the new drain system was working. I am so pleased that they checked, as they said they would. And I am thrilled that the drain system is working just as they said it would. They stopped by again on Friday just to make sure. These guys are FABULOUS!!! I strongly suggest you give them a try for your construction needs. Susan Swander – Waldport, OR – November 23, 2018

“I would highly recommend JOAT Construction. Darin Peterson was very responsive to all of my questions and inquiries. I had a bad drainage problem in my driveway. JOAT came and assessed the situation and recommended a solution. Darin and Derek were on time, professional and very friendly. Their bid was reasonable and their work was quick and efficient. They left the work site looking as good as it was before they started. Five (out of 5) stars. I’ll update this as soon as we have a good hard rain to advise if the drainage is working. Darin & Derek said they would come by to check it out after a rain.” Susan Swander – Waldport, OR – October 24, 2018

Construction and Housekeeping Services

“Darin and Derek were a pleasure to work with. The quality and professionalism they show is outstanding. Darin keeps you appraised of all material and supply purchases and explains why they are needed. Lisa, his wife, does our housekeeping twice a month and is extremely through and really personable. Derek is their nephew and knows his way around a construction site. I plan to redo my back yard with decking and JOAT is my choice for the job. They offer quality work and fair pricing.” R.

Housekeeping/Handyman Services

“It can be tricky using Google to seek help for services, like cleaning and handyman work, as the quality of the help is unknown. I had to do this for rental properties in Yachats. Luckily I happened to choose JOAT from the results.

The great service started before work even began. I was sent photos of the current condition of the homes, including photos of potential trouble spots, as well as estimates of how long the work would take. It was great to have both an idea of the scope of the work and an estimate of total costs before the work was initiated.

I do not live in the Yachats area, so I couldn’t drop by and check on progress. But the daily updates from Darin on the progress of the work, including photos, and hours worked kept me reassured quality work was being done and we were still very close to estimated budget.

Lisa and Darin do FANTASTIC work! They thoroughly cleaned the two properties, which hadn’t been properly cleaned in years. The attention to detail they show is nag. For instance, they carefully cleaned the cobwebs off of rough cut cedar and pulled out washers, dryers, refrigerators and stoves to get to those places that are usually never cleaned.

I was so impressed, I am having JOAT do routine maintenance in the yard and some handyman work on the actual structures.

As a bonus, Lisa and Darin are great people and a friendship has developed with them!” Matthew Boles – Palm Harbor, FL – July 20, 2018

Handyman Services/General Labor

“Darin of JOAT was a lifesaver! We had just bought a home on the coast and needed some handyman work done ASAP, as well as help to move furniture into the home. We were under a HUGE time crunch and Darin was extremely helpful. He arrived when he said he would, he had knowledge about the jobs he did and his rates were reasonable. I was glad to make his acquaintance and we look forward to doing work with him in the future.” Rene Tyson – Salem, OR – July 12, 2018

General Labor/Lawn Care and Trimming

“Darin was very responsive to our desperate need of having some yard work done. He came out and bid the job and was on it right away. The job was a bit more and took a bit longer then expected. He knew we were on a fixed budget and he kept to his bid and didn’t try to up the amount or stop in the middle of the job. He kept to his word. My husband and I really like his integrity and we gave me a bit more then his bid was. He deserved it. We only wish it could be more. We are moving into another house in a couple of weeks and we have asked him to help us out there. It is really hard to find people who have integrity, professionalism, experience, and respect for their customers. Darin and his crew have a great personal touch with their clients and is super trustworthy. He does what he says he is going to do and tells you exactly what he can do for you. I would HIGHLY recommend him for any work needed and frankly feel blessed that he is available to help me since my husband physically can’t. I will call on Darin again and again. ” Sheila Whitaker – Waldport, OR – July 9, 2018

Housekeeping/Handyman Services

“Dear Mr. Peterson, I want you to know how much I appreciate the excellent service you provided on both of the property rentals last week. With few instructions and zero supervision, you have exceeded all my expectations! I was amazed how you have reached areas, that I never expected anyone to pay attention to without direct instruction! I was glad to hire you and I’m happy with the result. I would like to THANK YOU for making my properties this nice.. We will definitely get back to you again for any cleaning job in future!
Sincerely, -David” David Aldossary – Spokane, WA – July 4, 2018

Housekeeping/Handyman Services

“I would highly recommend Darin and Lisa Peterson to anyone in need of their services. They rented from us and when they moved to buy their own house, they not only left our house exceptionally clean, but made a few improvements, including installing a doggie door and a good water filter for the kitchen tap water. We know them to be a hard working couple and very caring about the community they live in.” Sharon Rowley – Waldport, OR – June 12, 2018


“I would like to recommend Lisa for all your housekeeping services. She has the most cheerful disposition and is always pleasant in our home. You would be hard pressed to find anyone more trustworthy than Lisa. She possesses impeccable character and integrity. A perfectionist, she keeps our house spotless in spite of our two dogs that live inside with us. She is extremely well organized and is very fast and that works very well in our household. She pays attention to detail and takes pride in her work and it shows. It is with the utmost pleasure that I would recommend Lisa for a position as a housekeeper in your home and you will not be disappointed.” Diann Shoblom – Waldport, OR – June 12, 2018

General Labor

“We recently hired Darin Peterson of JOAT (Jack Of All Trades) to clean our 2-story windows and gutters. We were so very pleased with the work that Darin did for us. He was punctual – to the minute, and our windows and gutters are now sparkling.

We found Darin to be a very personable, highly qualified, hard-working young man. We were quite impressed with his impeccable work ethics, and highly recommend him for any chores you may need help with. We certainly will be requesting his services again and again.” Howard and Linda Thompson – Waldport, OR – June 12, 2018
