Meet the Team
Steve incorporated Adelaine Construction in 1992 after building with his father Steve Adelaine Sr. on and off for 20 years prior. Steve specialized in all forms of construction but his passion for wood working is best represented in his favorite form, log construction. His vast knowledge of building allowed him to visualize every aspect of a project to insure project accuracy. Steve retired in 2013, but continues his wood working by milling logs and creating custom tables. He enjoys the extra free time visiting his two daughters not in the business and spoiling his granddaughters. You might even catch him on a jobsite to make sure the ‘kids’ are still doing things right.
