At Alpine Builders, we understand how important trust is with the builders who take care of your projects. Dive into this page to learn about the families at Alpine Builders. As fellow Montanans, we know that trust and integrity starts with family. Get to know the faces and the history behind the founders of Alpine Builders.
Co-owners, Anthony Yoder and Mike Petersheim, began working with their fathers as teenagers. At a young age, they both learned the extraordinary work ethic and craftsmanship that runs deep in their Amish roots. Anthony and Mike worked together for years, becoming close friends, and eventually became brothers in law by marrying the love of their lives, two sisters from Kansas, Maryanne and Kathleen. Both Maryanne and Kathleen also come from an Amish background and both have prior office experience at successful construction companies. The two couples, with their combined experience, became a team, armed with a dream, and started the family-based construction company that you see today.
Established in 2018
Although we are a young company in years, we are in no way lacking in experience. Between the background of Anthony and Mike, the work ethic of our building crew, and the dedication of our office staff, we have the combined skills to bring your dream building to life. We are a young, family-based company, and although we are experienced, we are learning as we go, but we promise that we will always strive to learn from and fix our mistakes. We are proud that we have taken what we have learned from others, our life and our work experiences and made a successful, intentional way of life for our families.
Anthony Yoder: Co-Owner
Anthony is a Montana native and has always called Montana home. As a young man, he began learning to build from his father. He learned to build houses, barns and various woodworking projects. Anthony has also been an avid hunter since he was a young teenager and like a true Montana native, still enjoys it to this day.
In 2013, Anthony moved to the Bitterroot Valley and met his future business partner, Mike Petersheim. That same year, Anthony met Maryanne Riehl, a young lady from Kansas. They married in 2014. In 2019, they welcomed their firstborn, a son. 2 years later they welcomed twins, a boy and a girl into their family. Together the Yoders enjoy the outdoors, staying active and establishing their homestead in the Bitterroot Valley.
Mike Petersheim: Co-Owner
Mike was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, with Amish roots. In 2008, his parents relocated the family to Wyoming. Mike worked construction with his father, including building their family home in the Black Hills. Mike has a passion for trucks, guns, and arguably may be the hardest worker many of us will ever know. His move to Montana, and attraction to the Bitterroot Valley, started his path that led him to the early beginnings of his partnership with Anthony.
In 2014, Mike met his future wife, Anthony’s sister-in-law, Kathleen Riehl. They became friends and married in 2018. They welcomed their firstborn daughter in 2019, and a son in 2022. As a family, they love living in Montana, spending quality time together, and making their dreams into reality.
