My wife Kris and I started this business back in 1982; at which time we lived in Kenosha WI. A few years after my first son was born we decided to make the move down to Florida where our business flourished and our family grew. Altogether we have five children ( two boys and three girls). I began bringing my son, Jacob, with me at a young age, teaching him everything I know. My youngest son Zachary has recently decided to join the team and I could not be more excited! We have a huge passion for woodwork, mainly building homes and helping others, My business is my legacy and I couldn't be more proud of what we have accomplished.

I moved to Florida two years ago and we love it here. I've been married to my husband, Bill, for 37+ year. We have two daughters, one son and six grandchildren who all live in Wisconsin. I started working for Great Southern Log Homes in the beginning on 2015. I have never been in this type of business before so this has been a learning experience for me but i am fascinated and interested in how log homes are built and maintained. I did not realize there were so many different types of beautiful log homes. I love the look of these log homes, they are so cozy.

" Great Southern Log Homes is a family owned and operated business and being the oldest of five children, I had the opportunity to work with my dad building and restoring homes ever since I was a little kid (over 20 years). I take great pride in my work and I truly love what I do. Family is everything to me and it's a blessing to be able to work so closely with my own as well as all the other families we've met along the way and will meet in the future. "

Log Home Specialist Assistant

After many years of working in the hay industry and helping out every now and then my dad and brother needed extra help on a job; I finally started working with my Dad and older brother full time about a year ago. I really enjoy working with my hands and learning everything that goes into building a house. I've learned alot and look forward to the future.

Here at Great Southern Log Homes we strive to bring quality, integrity and professionalism to the construction industry. We pay close attention to detail and take great pride in the work we do.
