Chris P.


I joined the Gardner Team with 13 years of experience and a diverse background working in the construction industry. I started my career doing painting and sandblasting before moving into a position as a laborer for a train derailment company. I then joined the Union Pacific Railroad to do signal construction and eventually transitioned into carpentry. I am motivated by my team members, and I am committed to fostering strong teams who work well together in order to produce the best product possible. Originally from River Falls, WI, I now live in Apple Valley, MN. Outside of work, I like hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, and doing woodworking projects. I am also very passionate about cooking – I especially love BBQ!

Favorite Tool:

Microsoft Excel and CAD. I love being creative and being able to show that through different types of tools.

Little Known Facts:

I love cooking any type of food, especially when I’m with friends and family

I love every Chicago sports team and hope to see some success soon

Being from Chicago I have not experienced much of lake life, but since coming to Minnesota I have grown to love it
