Business Aims to Preserve History, Conserve Natural Resources
April, 2017

GK Meyer Construction & Repair, LLC is a general contracting company that specializes in original log and timber frame structures, the renovation of historical homes, and building new homes and completing remodels using reclaimed logs, timbers and lumber in combination with new materials. By combining the old with the new, a structure is produced that appears to belong in its own era while offering all of the comforts of a 21st century home.

GK?Meyer Construction also takes down historic structures and reuses the materials in new homes and barns. They use logs, timbers and other salvaged items to mill flooring and manufacture custom furniture. The reuse of these old structures not only results in a beautiful end product; it preserves natural resources. They are able to save structures that are no longer of value to current owners and build a new home or outbuilding that will serve a new family for many generations.

GK Meyer Construction has expanded facilities to include a sawmill and new, larger workshop that will allow them to mill custom architectural turn-of-the-century trim, handmade doors, windows, flooring and furniture to transform any home. Using first-growth timber, they now offer one-of-a-kind flooring. Items such as door knobs, drawer pulls, and baseboards are reclaimed for preservation in tables, benches, doors, and other furniture.
