About Our Approach

We live, work and play in the Flathead Valley, we have a vested interest in maximizing property values through quality building on any budget.  

Ibex Builders self performs as much of the project as possible, this reduces the delays incurred by having to coordinate with multiple sub-contractors on the project.  This also improves quality-control, Luke is onsite representing his clients and ensuring the end product is what they are expecting.  

When building a home or entering into a renovation project the most important decision you make is hiring a contractor you can trust.  Having a trusted adviser in this process with your budget in mind is key.  Knowing that your contractor is providing you with individualized recommendations is how you can avoid costly change orders and keep your project running smoothly.  

Luke Stahlberg

Founder, Master Builder


Luke was born and raised in Kalispell, Montana.  As an avid outdoors man, he has a strong appreciation for the recreation our valley offers.  

Luke started his carpentry career with a commercial building firm where he worked on projects ranging from the Cancer Treatment Center to Mackenzie River Pizza Company.  It was no

surprise to anyone that he excelled working with his hands.  Luke worked as a foreman for an underground utilities company in Southern California for a few years before answering the overwhelming call of the fresh air, cold smoke and beauty of the Rocky Mountains.  Upon returning to Montana Luke ventured out as a sub-contractor on high-end custom homes.  It was here that he honed his fine woodworking skills, working on custom log homes and timber frames.  Luke further expanded his education at Montana State University by pursuing a degree in Construction Engineering Technology.  


Ibex Builders is the culmination of years of diverse experience and education.  Every project is different and Luke draws from his vast building knowledge to create thoughtful, lasting structures he is proud to put his name on.
