Mike DeFrank: Mike started in the trades at a very young age, taking an immediate interest in construction. He was trained in all facets of the construction trades, to include masonry, plumbing, carpentry, painting, and overall project management. At an early age he had the competence to complete a remodeling project from start to finish, which he recognized as a valuable skill. As he worked in the different areas of construction it was early on that he realized carpentry was his passion and second love. Mike enjoys running the projects from start to finish as well as increasing his knowledge in the field to the innovation products and designs that are forthcoming in the industry. Aside from his craftsmanship skills alone, what you will see with Mike if he is on your project, is a work ethic that is hard to come by. He shows up each day and puts in his heart and soul in each job. His work ethic is rewarded by producing outstanding projects from start to finish with an incredible attention to detail. For Mike, the ultimate reward in his professional life is handing over the finished product to a very satisfied customer. With carpentry being his second love, his four children and wife are what drives him to be successful. Mike works extremely hard to also reward himself with family time which may be at home or on the football field with his boys. With all that he has accomplished at a young age, Mike feels as though he is just getting started!
