President’s Message

Beau Daffer, HBAL President

It definitely feels like spring now. Grass is getting green and leaves are growing on trees. That tells me it is time for the Spring Parade of Homes! We are excited to share 46 individual homes built by 36 HBAL builder members. It is exciting to see an increase in the number of homes as last year we had 25. This means there is a lot more opportunity for people to see the diversity and individuality each builder provides. Across all the homes, you will find many unique features that have been worked on by our talented builders, designers, subcontractors and suppliers. A lot of work goes into completing a Parade home and we appreciate the work done to help this event continue to be successful. We hope to see many of you visiting us during the Parade May 12-19.

I will leave you with a little motivation:


of us is carving a stone, erecting a column, or cutting a piece of stained glass in the construction of something much bigger than ourselves.”

HBAL Member Spotlight

Click here to view Christina's full Member Spotlight.

Tell us about your family. My husband Derek and I have been married for six years. We have two children; our son Kallum is 5 and daughter Decklyn is 3. If you had to eat one meal every day for the rest of your life, what would it be? Breakfast: eggs, bacon, and potatoes with hot sauce

Where are you from? Where did you go to school? I was born in Lincoln, but grew up most of my life in Elba, NE. I started in third grade at a K-12 one-building school and graduated with 15 in my class. I then attended Hastings College where I played four seasons of volleyball and received my undergraduate degree in marketing. I later completed a master program in project management at Bellevue University.

What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know? I climbed the Great Wall of China on my hands and knees after I tore my ACL the week before.

What is your greatest talent that you don’t utilize in your daily work life?

I'm an excellent trip and party planner. I have a knack for finding unique locations, restaurants, and entertainment.

When you’re not working, how do you enjoy spending your time? Pretending I'm a homesteader: gardening, raising chickens, herding cats, and riding horses.

Who is someone who's made a big impact on your life? Why? My mother. She instilled in me from childhood that I needed to be strong enough and smart enough to create my own success and happiness. This idea has always pushed me forward to the next life step.

What do you love the most about your job? I enjoy helping to build something tangible that will be around for years to come. I love getting to drive my children down streets, many that I developed with Krueger Development, and show them the houses Queenpin Builders has built. I also love getting to work and grow Queenpin Builders with my co-owner and best friend, Stephanie Ponce.

How has your career benefited from being a member of HBAL? Being an HBAL member allows me to be on the "first to know" list about issues both good and bad in the Lincoln market. The HBAL staff does a great job of sharing information as soon as they obtain it.

Any tips or advice for new HBAL members? If you are uncertain in a particular matter within this industry, turn toward your fellow members for help. Keep and use your membership directory.

Happy May! May is Small Business Month. Keep local, small businesses in mind when you are shopping, go out to eat or hire services. Keeping money in our community is important for stability and growth. At Willet Construction, we focus on making our purchases locally and building relationships with our suppliers and subcontractors. I encourage you to do the same.

May Meeting

Wednesday, May 1 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

There’s no better way to see the new Food Bank of Lincoln facility than to volunteer! You could be sorting donations, processing produce or prepacking groceries. We might not know exactly which one you will do until you arrive. One truckload of avocados can really upset the best laid plans!

We had great weather for people to head out and see how remodelers can change homes for better living during the Tour of Remodeled Homes. The Tour is one of my favorite events each year, and I encourage more remodelers to enter a home so we can grow the experience for the attendees. More attendees mean more exposure and value to our businesses to showcase our talents. Special thanks to HBAL for putting this on each year – your work does not go unnoticed!

Our next Remodelers Council meeting is May 1 where we will be volunteering at the Food Bank of Lincoln. It will be a great time to serve the Food Bank while getting to know your fellow Remodelers Council members.

The Parade of Homes is May 12-19. Go support our homebuilders and see their new work this year.

Please RSVP by April 29 to or call 402-423-4225.
