Steve knew as a youth that he wanted to design and build, but it was in the School of Architecture at UWM that he discovered his passion for energy-efficient and alternative building. While earning his degree, he began his own company in 1990, Deck Design and Construction. He learned carpentry by building decks and doing remodeling, then worked for two years as a project manager for a developer. Armed with all the necessary skills, he built his first “green” home in 1995 as PEA Builders, Inc. His vision and long-term commitment to sustainable construction and super energy efficiency give him a wealth of experience in this type of building which is unmatched by any other builder in SE Wisconsin.
VP / Design Consultant
Mary has helped Steve develop and grow PEA Builders since their marriage in 1991. She keeps everything moving along by keeping a keen eye on the books, but her talents are not limited to the financial aspects of PEA. She has an Associate Degree in Interior Design, and her sense of color and style are a huge benefit to our customers looking to make material selections and color choices.
