My son and I started building sheds and shelters while we lived in Indiana. There we worked with many wonderful people to build a supportive environment for disabled veterans through working with wood. Our goal is to build beautiful hand crafted structures blending new and traditional techniques and style. After finding a nice place to call  home here in Tehachapi California we are pleased to call our brand "Rustic Ranch".
