Steve Otto Constructionupdated: May 2014

Born in Ohio to a Mennonite family whose trade was building, at age seven departed with his family on a church mission to Paraguay with little more than a suitcase for each family member. There, in challenging and primitive conditions, the family pursued its building roots. Yet the absence of electricity held a blessing for Steve as he learned to work and build with only simple hand tools, shaping the skills of an expert craftsman in the young boy.

At 21, Steve returned to the United States, later settling in Tennessee in 1991 where he established his own contracting company. Over the years, he would build 22 homes establishing his reputation as a highly skilled and innovative craftsman with an unusual attention to fit and finishing details. "Wood is a God-given material, and I like to make wood talk, said Steve.

Deeply rooted in the family trade of building, Steve has a lifetime of experience in carpentry from using hand tools to operating large machinery. In 1991, with sons Ryan and Nathan, they ventured on their own as Steve Otto Construction starting in Rock Island, Tennessee repairing boat docks. Our first project consisted of carrying concrete mix in 80 lb bags down 150 steps to repair a dock that a flood had damage. Word spread throughout the river-side homes of the rescued boat dock and our quality workmanship, generating new business.

From the simplest of projects to what has grown into large home craftsman construction, we take great pride to ensure that our customers receive the most quailty workmanship. We have worked in Rock Island and surrounding areas in Bone Cave, Tennessee with a total of 22 homes and hundreds of other building projects.

From there, we worked in Belle Meade, to Overton Retreat in McMinnville, Tennessee. Now, we are presently working in the Fall Creek Falls area. We have also worked in Crossville and Cookeville areas. We also do remodeling and other building projects.
