A Lifetime of Experience
Dale's first experiences in building were at age 17, under the wing of his father who completed the construction of the St. Petersburg High School in Alaska. From there, Dale pursued formal eduction in the trade, obtaining degrees in architectural drafting and carpentry.
His skills on the job site allowed him to work his way up quickly through the ranks - being promoted from Foreman to Superintendent in just 3 weeks. He oversaw major projects such as the East Side Spokane Library, multiple Oregon State DOT facilities, large apartment complexes throughout Washington state, remodel of the Kibbie dome at University of Idaho, and Tawanka Commons at Eastern Washington University, to name a few.
After 12 years as superintendent, he moved into the business side of the field and spent 5 years as a project manager and estimator.
Inevitably, Dale's passion for working directly with people and crafting beautiful homes led him to go into business for himself and open North Ridge in 2004. Since then, he has worked relentlessly to provide the highest quality products to the customers he serves.
