About the Owner Tony Weber

I am the owner of NW Homes, Inc. which does business as Okoboji Duradek and EverGreen Design-Build and have been involved in all phases of the construction industry since graduating from Iowa State University with an architectural degree. My goal is to help homeowners achieve their dream of a new home, whether it be a small addition, remodel or a completely new home or commercial building. In order to have quality construction you need to start with quality design. Careful planning and designing can insure that you get a building that will enhance your lifestyle. I provide complete design services including site plan layout, building design, and assisting in selecting products that best fit your requirements. Quality designs help your project to be completed on schedule and within your budget.

I have been promoting energy efficient construction techniques and the use of products that will reduce the amount of money that is needed to heat and cool your home. I was instrumental in the development of the Permanent Wood foundation giving home owners a warm, dry living space in the lower level. We started using and promoting heat recovery ventilation system in 1980 which helps improve indoor air quality and control moisture levels in your home. In 2009, I became a Certified Green Professional (CGP), an exclusive designation offered by the National Association of Home Builders, designed to teach building industry professionals strategies for incorporating green building principles into homes using cost effective and affordable options. By adhering to green principles you use less energy, use less water, don’t poison the air, avoid buying products that poison the world when they are manufactured or shipped and buy from responsible manufacturers. I am also certified by Building Performance Institute as “Building Analyst” and “Envelope Specialist” and can help determine what steps are necessary to make you home more comfortable and energy efficient. I am also a Certified Level I Thermographer which helps me verify home performance issues by using infrared cameras to find deficiencies in insulation, air leakage when used in conjunction with blower doors and to locate moisture problems.

I am available to assist you with all type of construction projects including new homes, additions, remodel projects, energy updates, and commercial buildings. I have the expertise to assist with solving problems offering consultation services. I have worked with the same team of subcontractors for years and have selected them because of their knowledge in the particular industry. Part of any addition and remodel project usually involves cabinets and countertops and I can assist with the design of kitchen and bath layouts with the use of CAD software. I can provide you with custom cabinetry and a wide range of countertop materials. I serve as Chairman of the Dickinson Planning and Zoning commission and am very familiar with the various zoning ordinances that affect building in the Iowa Great Lakes area.

I have been a Dealer, distributor, and applicator for Duradek, the original sheet vinyl membrane system for waterproofing since 1992. Duradek is available in many attractive patterns, colors and textures and provide slip-resistant surfaces for outdoor living spaces. Duradek and Durarail is a great way to provide a low maintenance deck and railing system for your decks, balconies, pool decks, boat houses, and patios. I have Duradek projects throughout Iowa and Minnesota on homes, apartments, condominium projects and resorts.
