who we are

Marries his beautiful wife, Vanessa :-)

The present day – Trying to keep pace with the ever changing economy. Kitchens and bathrooms still remain the main focus. Though God, his wife and two young boys take precedence over all.

Relocates to the East Bay and becomes employed with a local Kitchen Design Center. Having a wonderful time partnering and running multiple crews and projects for nine years.

Joe Yelavich, owner and contractor of Yelcon Development, moves to the west coast from the unbearably hot state of Texas to pursue the California dream of redwoods and ocean swells. Though college and working full time for a family construction company really got in the way.

Officially starts Yelcon Development, opening an office in Livermore. Graciously stepping away from a outstanding employer, with the inevitable long term plan of being a successful entrepreneur.

Becomes a proud father, again!

Since 1985 Joe Yelavich has been providing a higher level of construction detail. Joe and his team will commit their efforts with the understanding that your home is a piece of your identity.


At Yelcon Development, we understand the importance of that link and make sure that you're incredibly happy with your home and its value as a long-term investment.


By doing more than just remodeling your home, we want to develop a long term relationship for your current and future needs. Our goal is to spoil you so every other service provider will fall short.
