Hailing from the Elko-New Market area, Matt began his construction experience in high school framing houses. He continued to diversify within the field and has now been a builder for fifteen years. With his knowledge of the industry, communication, and commitment to our projects, its common to see Matt thoroughly explaining the build process to clients in ways that are easy to understand.

When he's not on the job, Matt is busy tending to life with seven children and spending time with his eleven siblings and 40-some nieces and nephews. Matt and his wife Michelle enjoy spending time outdoors with the family and at their cabin. He also makes it a priority to give back and is highly involved within his church and the community - taking on projects that have contributed to over $100,000 for Christian education initiatives.
