Both our Salesman, Anthony Yoder, and our Project Manager, 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 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, making them all the dream team.
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, and the experience of running successful offices from Kathleen and Maryanne, we have the combined skills to bring your dream building to life.
We are a young, family run 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 lives 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 Amish 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.
His Christian faith brought him to the Bitterroot Valley where he soon met his future business partner, Mike Petersheim. Then in 2013, Anthony met Maryanne Riehl, a young lady from Kansas. They married in 2014. In 2019, the happy family welcomed their first born son. Together the Yoders enjoy the outdoors, staying active and currently are redesigning their new home.
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 beautiful baby girl in 2019. As a family, they love living in Montana, spending quality time together, and making their dreams into reality.
