Owner / Founder
Ben started Lake Country Remodeling in 2000, but has been in the industry for over thirty years and is familiar with every aspect of it. Always having enjoyed working with his hands, Ben’s first remodeling job was for his highschool shop teacher, and since then Ben has cultivated a deep appreciation for completed projects and high-end results. Since starting Lake Country Remodeling, Ben has graduated from working in the field to a sales management position to help assist clients with details of their projects.
To Ben, the Lake Country team is especially effective because they are all committed to working together and helping each other out. "Everybody here wants to be a team player, I think that’s a big bonus.” When asked about the future, Ben said Lake Country is growing, and he excited to see where it is going to be in the next few years.
Brian Peterson, the son of Lake Country Remodeling's founder Ben Peterson, has worked at least part-time with his dad on jobs since the age of ten or eleven. Brian's current role as business manager in the company is to “do pretty much anything that has to do with numbers, all the financial management and payroll, billing and some sales bidding. Once in a while I do a little bit of sales, but I try to help out in all the positions.”
The Lake Country Remodeling team is special to Brian because of the relationships they build with the clients and their ability to accomplish any project a client may need. In the next five years Brian is excited to see the Lake Country Remodeling showroom finished and their great team grow.
When asked about how he came to Lake Country Remodeling, Don Tyler responds, “That’s an interesting story.” After working for Lake Country for a few years as a drywalling and tiling subcontractor, he eventually came to work for Lake Country in 2007 as a field laborer. Two years ago, Don moved into client relations & sales. Don has extensive knowledge and experience in construction, remodeling, and sales, and he brings to the table a sense of humor and a deep love of people.
According to Don, he’s “an agent, I work to build confidence with the customers and maintain relationships with them, help illustrate the process to the customers, and show how we can help them.” In the next few years Don is looking to see Lake Country Remodeling grow explosively without compromising their values.
Tim Buus came to work for Lake Country Remodeling as a project manager two and half years ago after a career as an expediter for several national residential builders. As the project manager, he is primarily responsible for scheduling and organizing labor on the sites, purchasing materials for projects, and working with contractors and labor partners.
To Tim, Lake Country Remodeling's best assets are the smaller team environment, their aspirations to work at a high standard of workmanship, and their desire to represent their personal virtues and beliefs in their work and business practices. In the coming years Tim would like to see continued progress in defining and refining structures that are working within the company.
