Dan Ogonek In 1998, Dan took over what started as a family firewood and custom milling business and since then has evolved it to the small yet mighty timber frame company it is today. Dan is pretty good with a chain saw, as you can see, but his greatest strength is bringing together people with a timber frame vision and the skilled artisans that can make it happen.
