Meet Michael Lohman
Michael Lohman has been in the business for over thirty years. “I grew up in this business,” he explains. “My dad was a contractor and I wanted to be just like him. At 13, I started working for him on the weekends. In tenth grade I started my first year of technical school, and by the time I was a senior, I was going to school for half a day and working with my father for half a day. I learned more and more, and he started leaving me in charge on some of the jobs. My brother worked with him too and would go on to start his own business. As for me, I started Michael Lohman General Contracting in 1986 after my father retired. I’ve been working in the field ever since.”
It’s Much More
Not to Hire Us
It’s More Expensive Not to Hire Us
“I usually don’t get involved in projects that are fraught with problems,” Michael explains. “That’s because I’ve seen how wrong a job can go when contractors don’t communicate with each other. I looked at a job once on which the first contractor ended up in jail for stealing money from the clients. A subsequent contractor had health problems. He recommended somebody to the homeowners and, desperate, they took the recommendation.
How Do You Fix That?
The new crew that worked on the foundation did a nice job... but they missed their mark. The new foundation was three inches higher than the floor of the house. How do you fix that? The answer is, you don’t. The framing crew came in, never checked the foundation, and framed the whole thing. Now there’s a three inch drop from one room to the other, which is a trip hazard and doesn’t meet building code. The new client had no idea what that meant. She didn’t even realize, at first, that something bad had happened.”

Our Latest Project
The Harmon Pool House
This past winter (2022), I was referred to the Harmon’s by Jeff at Aquasun Outdoors. Jeff and his crew were renovating the existing pool and the Harmons wanted to add a pool house. I contacted the owners, arranged a visit to the site, and reviewed the building plans. The collaboration immediately began after I called my team to start the bidding process.
Britney, a designer, had a clear idea of what she wanted the outcome to be from an aesthetic viewpoint. The building plans were vague, but we could bring her vision to fruition with her input. I suggested Douglas Fir lumber. This wood was a superb choice of wood for the project. We dealt with a heat wave and supply chain issues, but ultimately, the outcome was a success.
