Steve incorporated Adelaine Construction in 1992 after building with his father, Steve 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 log construction. His vast knowledge of building allowed him to visualize every aspect of a project to insure project accuracy throughout the build. Steve retired in 2013, and enjoys free time camping in the wilderness, visiting his two daughters not in the business and spoiling his 7 grandchildren. You might even catch him on a jobsite to make sure the ‘kids’ are still doing things right.
Melissa, Steve’s eldest daughter, joined the family business in 1999 after graduating from Northern Michigan University in accounting and business management. She worked on the jobsite as a crew member for 4 years before transitioning into the office directing the business side of construction and providing each client with personalized service in project coordination. Her passion for design is complemented by her knowledge of the physical aspects of construction when assisting customers with the vast decisions for a project. Melissa is a licensed builder in Michigan and has served the community at large by sitting on many committee boards.
Noah, Steve’s Son, joined the team full time in 2005 after graduating with a Construction Management Degree from Ferris State University. He gained practical experience working with Steve during his summer breaks throughout high school and college. Noah works on the jobsite daily efficiently directing the crew while problem solving all aspects of a job. Noah’s extensive knowledge of building techniques ranges from old fashioned craftsmanship, a family trademark passed down by Steve, to new innovative ideas ensuring the company is always moving to the next level. Noah is also a licensed builder in Michigan.
