Eric Mishefske has been a carpenter with Story Hill since 2015. Eric obtained a welding degree through WCTC and came to us out of the Youth Build Program in Waukesha, which he completed in 2014. Eric has vastly improved his rough and finish carpentry skills with our firm and always has the customer in mind when called upon during a remodeling project. He continues to amaze us with his great work ethic and his ability to quickly grasp information that is handed to him. Eric also recently completed his NARI Certified Lead Carpenter designation. We are excited to have him grow with us.
Michael became a carpenter with Story Hill at the beginning of 2017. After spending 4 years as a teacher, he was drawn into the home remodeling industry in 2015 due to his desire to renovate older homes in the Milwaukee area. He loves being able to interact with homeowners and exceed expectations for their renovation. In his free time, Michael enjoys doing a variety of activities with his wife including camping, Crossfit (where they met) and playing with their dog Ellie.
We had a wonderful experience with Story Hill Renovations. They renovated a tiny master bath for us. They were great to work with and communicating with them was easy. They followed through on everything, kept on schedule and were very attentive to keeping the rest of our home neat and tidy. Even long after our project was over – 3 years later – we had a problem with the sky tube they installed. They came out within the week and fixed it free of charge. I’d use them again in a heartbeat.Dawn H.
