With over 25 years of experience in the construction industry, Mike has seen it all when it comes to every step of the construction process. Mike started as an independent frame carpenter, quickly moving up to a finish Carpenter, and finishing for large commercial projects. This work gave Mike the skills required for Framing and Finishing Carpentry projects.
This early work in the industry also allowed Mike to develop leadership and project management skills. In his many years in the construction industry, Mike has managed the construction of multi-residential complexes and buildings, advancing quickly into roles as a field superintendent and project manager, eventually to vice president of the construction firm he worked for. These skills and experiences inspired Mike to start Little Creek Construction LLC in 2010 where he takes each project from its initial concept to the open house. Little Creek Construction LLC has specialized mostly in apartments and condos, but has recently diversified into retail and small specialty medical clinics.

When not working on his latest construction projects, Mike is a professional rodeo cowboy spending his weekends either roping, hunting with his three dogs, or spending time with his family. Mike lives his life out loud and as he regularly tells his kids:
“The great thing about my job is I don’t feel like I have a job. Life’s too short to wake up and dread a job. I love what I do, but I have other interests and hobbies outside of work. I still manage to combine work, play and family. I have a lot of stuff to do, and I’m going to do it.” Mike Filkouski
