Koontz Builder completed over 80 different projects during 2019, from one of a kind custom homes, to commercial work, to kitchen and bath remodels. The company has added 6 new team members during the past 12 months and they are preparing to bid farewell to 2 long term employees who will be retiring during 2020.
Paul Tieman will retire after more than 43 years with the company and Roger Baker will retire after more than 29 years at Koontz Builder.
