Luke has been in the remodeling industry for over 20 years! His interest in woodworking and carpentry goes all the way back to shop class in high school. While going through the carpentry program at RCTC, he started a job as a carpenter working for a local high end home builder. After 12 years of working under master carpenters and gaining experience in all aspects of building trades, he decided to open Stier Construction to offer a different remodeling experience to the Rochester Area. Luke is on the board of directors for the Rochester Area Builders. What’s his favorite part of remodeling? “I’ve always enjoyed taking something ordinary or outdated and transforming it into something extraordinary. I love the process of turning an owner inspired concept into a completed, beautiful new space. Working with my hands has always been something that I have enjoyed, and I think that’s what prompted me to pursue a career in carpentry. I really enjoy the details and challenges a remodeling project creates, and it's very rewarding to see a project through from start to finish!” In his spare time, Luke enjoys spending time with his friends & family, attending sporting events for his 2 girls, and working on projects around their farm.
