Baker Construction is a full-service, award-winning
residential & light commercial Certified Green Builder

Brent and Laura Baker founded Baker Construction & Development in 1991 in Sandpoint, Idaho as a Sole Proprietorship and incorporated as Brent Baker Construction & Development, Inc. in 1994. Since our founding in 1991 and as of this writing, we have completed over 350 projects in Idaho, Montana, California and Washington, D.C., with the majority of those right here in Bonner County. While the majority of our projects have been new custom residences, we have deep experience as well in additions and remodels, light commercial work, public works projects, mixed use projects, historical renovations and development projects.

An avid golfer, Wayne is likely, when he gets spare time, to be found out on area golf courses, or in the alternative, spending time with his grandchildren.

Brent Baker

Brent Baker, co-founder of Baker Construction and Development, is an executive, building contractor, developer, investor and consultant with over 40 years experience in construction and 30 years in investment and development. Construction projects have included light commercial and industrial, residential, recreational and agricultural. His development experience includes ski resort, recreational waterfront, agricultural, rural and urban infill projects.

Brent, a graduate of Sonoma State University in Northern California, joined the Carpenters Union in Santa Rosa in 1971, for summer employment while attending college. After graduating college with a degree in Psychology, Brent married his wife Laura, started a family and moved to Sandpoint in 1977.

In his leisure time, Brent loves spending time with his family on Lake Pend Oreille in the summer and skiing in the winter – and once in a while he might even be found on the golf course with Wayne and the crew. An avid history and architecture buff, he spends time as he can exploring the rich patrimony of the Southwest of France.
