My wife Lisa "LB" and I have been happily married for 27 years. We have two amazing daughters - Samantha and Madison.
We enjoy spending time with good friends, listening to music, and reading. We especially enjoy traveling “Up North” Michigan and also Chicago to visit our Daughters. While there, we enjoy spending time at the waterfront parks, local diners, and frequent trips to the used record store.
At the age of 16, I got my first part-time job as general construction laborer. After high School, I continued working as a Framing & Finish Trim Carpenter and Construction Foreman.
In 1999 I was offered an opportunity with a full-service construction company as a Senior Project Manager where I honed my professional construction management & estimating skills, while working on many different project types. Working with the legendary Architect Bob Metcalf, in building one of his new home designs was an absolute honor and one of my career highlights thus far.
In 2010, I Joined a local Design Build Company as a Production Department Manager, Estimator, and Pre-construction Director. While there, I took great pride in helping the company grow into a successful business and also helping & mentoring co-workers along the way.
I'm often asked - "Why the name Three Tree Builders?" When I was a boy I was fascinated with the stories of my Great Grandfather building many of the neighborhood Homes & Cottages. One summer day when I was about 10 years old, with a project of my own in mind, I set out with a hammer, ladder, hand saw, scrap wood, and a jar of old nails. After a day of smashing my fingers and having a hammer drop on my head, I finished my first construction project --- a fort situated among three perfectly spaced great white pines. It wasn't much of a fort, but I was hooked. So I guess you could say Three Tree Builders began almost 40 years ago in a stand of great white pines along the west shore of Halfmoon Lake.
Through the 30+ years in the industry, I've been fortunate to work with many talented Architects, Designers, Engineers, Trade Professionals, Vendors, and Clients to plan & build many amazing projects in the area. It's through a creative & collaborative planning process where the details of the project are realized. Due diligence & attention to even the fussiest of details gives a project an advantage before it starts. I'm a firm believer in the old saying - plan the work and work the plan; the end result for clients is less stress and more fun during construction.
