“I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to create something amazing.”

Wanted to provide a first-hand testimonial about Peter's work and skills as a log home builder. In a word - INCREDIBLE! He recently completed my home, from start to finish, in Missouri and I cannot count the number superlative comments I continue to get on the amazing craftsmanship. I have literally had NOBODY, None, nada, zero, people not comment on the structure, effort, and work that he led and did himself. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to create something amazing.
