Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Mark Waitkus, owner of Waitkus Construction Co.. I
have been in business for over 35 years and have successfully completed hundreds of projects throughout my career. My
grandfather was a carpenter, and at a very young age I was building things in his garage. Not very good things, but it was
a start. I still maintain and use some of his tools today. My other grandfather was a blacksmith. So I guess it's in my blood
that I was destined to be creative and work with my hands. I started out as a furniture maker, but quickly realized that I
could be just as creative, only on a larger scale, by building homes. In addition, I could incorporate my woodworking skills
into the homes that I built, and I have always enjoyed working with the customer to help bring their dream home to reality.
Whether it's four framed walls to start a new project, stacking the logs of a new log home, installing a raised panel fireplace mantel or
hand cutting a mortise and tenon joint for a custom cabinet, there is a great deal of satisfaction in standing back at the end if the day to see what you've created. To see the delight of a happy homeowner is an added bonus that never gets old.
Over the past 35 years we have averaged between 4 and 6 custom and semi-custom homes per year along with numerous custom home additions and remodels per year, as well as an occasional commercial job. We also offer custom cabinetry and woodworking that we create in our own woodshop.
