At the age of 17, Dustin started traveling the country building and stacking multi-million dollar log and timber frame homes. In Oregon, where he grew up, he always had a custom log home that he was building from start to finish. He personally laid out the homes on the lots, dug daylight basement foundations with his back-ho, formed and poured all the concrete retaining walls and foundations, framed and stacked the log homes, painted, stained, built cabinets, performed all the stone work, tile, finish trim, and even cleaned the homes and handed over the keys ensuring his expertise in all phases of the build process.
Dustin has an art background enjoying the creative process of sculpting, drawing, painting and even carving bears out of logs with a chainsaw. He brings this creative vision, use of color and shape, and outside the box type of conceptual thinking into the build process when helping design homes for clients. " I have a great understanding of value, flow and design that I try to bring to every project with an emphasis on projects withstanding the test of time and incorporating the use of natural, quality materials."
