Mike has never been afraid of hard work. He started his journey into the construction trades at the young age of 15 where he worked on a roofing crew for the summer. At 17 years old he was able to work half days framing new construction homes through the Shakopee High School construction program. After graduating from Shakopee in 2001, Mike continued framing houses full time. In 2011, Mike established MH Custom Construction, LLC, specializing in residential projects that ranged from deck additions and remodels to complete ground-up new home builds in the Twin Cities Metro area. Mike currently lives in Owatonna, MN with his wife and two daughters. In his free time he enjoys bee keeping, snowboarding, and practicing jiu jitsu.
