Robert Smith has over 32 years of experience in construction and specializes in painting and taping. Seeing the changes that can be made, and then making them to maximize the space is wonderful to see. Robert’s favorite project to date is the Rietz project. Having two bobcats driving around under the house was pretty cool and the project was different than anything the company had done before. Camping and fishing interest Robert as well as working with model trains. Robert is a quiet mentor to the younger workers and enjoys helping others improve.
Larry Lueck specializes in trim and finish work and has been around construction his whole life. “Seeing the reaction of the homeowner when we transform something into exactly what they had envisioned leaves me with a good feeling,” says Larry. “Different aspects of remodeling, from start to finish, are all very fun.” Off the job site, Larry is a sports lover. He enjoys everything from the Montana Grizzlies and Billings Outlaws to the Minnesota Vikings, NASCAR and the NHRA. He also enjoys camping and hunting. Although these sports are all fun, the most rewarding aspect of Larry’s life is his kids and grandkids.
