JAMES L. VAN SCHAACK, III
James L. Van Schaack III, is the son of noted American designer and digital artist
J. L. Van Schaack, Jr.
Jim III owns and operates the construction company, A-Awesome View, out of San Juan Capistrano, serving south Orange County, California.
Jim III was born in Los Angeles and grew up in the San Fernando Valley. He met his wife Linda playing volley ball and both had a passion for surfing. They spent many early mornings before work enjoying the waves and most weekends surfing at San Onofre beach. In 1975 Jim and Linda married and moved to Telluride, Colorado where they had their two wonderful, now adult, children, Dena and Nathan.
Jim started his construction career doing historic restoration of early American mining and Victorian homes and turn of the century commercial buildings in Telluride. He and his family loved Telluride, the outdoors and skiing, but Jim and Linda missed the beautiful beaches of sunny California.
They moved to San Juan Capistrano in 1986 and Jim worked as a partner with well known local contractors. With a desire to own his own company, he started A-Awesome View and put together an excellent construction team.
Jim is well known for his beach property remodels, taking older houses and creating beautiful "homes."
