His aspirations involve constructing distinctive, environmentally conscious small homes. As a father of two, as well as an enthusiastic dog and nature aficionado, Zeke seamlessly integrates his love for family and the outdoors into his entrepreneurial ventures and overall business vision.

Projects Coordinator

Prior to embarking into the construction industry, Carolyn had acquired proficiency in diverse industries, earning her the title of 'Jacqueline-of-Various-Trades.’ For over a decade of that time, she pursued a career in agriculture. Seeing farming as a potential bridge between environmental and public health, she apprenticed on a couple of organic seed-saving farms--from eastern Canada to the California fields--before co-starting a small farm in good ol’ Illinois. About two years ago, Carolyn’s attention pointed towards HyggeHus. Their mission to create intentional and grounding spaces, coupled with the challenge of learning a new world and finding order within it, piqued her curiosity. During her leisure time, when not engrossed in overseeing the multifaceted intricacies of a remodeling undertaking, she avidly engages in activities such as traversing the Superior Trail and spending time with loved ones. 



Office Administrator / Bookkeeper

With a career in accounting that dates back to 2013, my professional journey began with a passion for fashion design. However, over time, I realized that my strengths leaned more towards the analytical side than the creative, which steered me towards the field of accounting. A graduate of UW Green Bay, I have honed my expertise by working in both public accounting where I specialized in tax preparation and on the private side where I assisted small businesses with their financial needs. Beyond numbers, my interests extend to reading and indulging in video games during leisure moments.
