About Pence Building Enterprises

Jack Pence

Evan PenceEvan is a fourth generation general contractor following in the footsteps of his father, Jack, grandfather, John and gr-great grandfather, Olaf.

Evan was born and raised in the rural North County community of Valley Center.  He attended Cal State San Marcos where he graduated with a degree in Economics.  After graduating, Evan worked in the trades learning the construction of custom homes from the ground up.  He served in the capacity of Vice-President for five years, during which time he expanded the Company’s scope to the coast, and then took over the Company in 2016 while his father, Jack, began his move into retirement.

Evan’s reputation of demanding high quality from his subcontractors and suppliers has earned him the respect of his peers and established him as one of the premier Contractors in San Diego County.  He builds custom and semi-custom homes for clients and homeowners throughout North County, while he maintains a special focus on ultra-custom homes on the ocean beachfront, which requires combining engineering with beautiful design.  He maintains an office in both Oceanside and Valley Center.

Evan, his wife, Carrie and children, Andrew and Camelia, spend much of their free time enjoying the outdoors whether it’s the beach, the desert, or backpacking in the mountains.

Evan and Carrie live in South Oceanside where they also have their home office.  Carrie grew up in Oceanside and graduated from Oceanside High School, then on to UC Santa Barbara where she graduated with Bachelor of Arts degree.  She has a masters degree in Education and currently teaches high school biology in Murrieta.
