A Word From the Founder
My aspiration is to establish AJ’s as a lasting legacy for my family, to be cherished and passed down for generations to come. I have constructed this company on a solid foundation of integrity and quality, which is also instilled in our team through our Code of Honor. This code has proven to be a true testament to the superiority of our team over others.
Chris’ passion for creating one of a kind luxury outdoor living spaces is what keeps him excited about his business and team. His continued focus on the design details that reflect the unique characteristics of each of our clients has made AJ’s special and in a class by ourselves. Chris feels investing in the design creation will make for a successful construction process and will in turn be used more than the client even imagined. He attributes AJ’s success to his partnership with his wife Maria, team of employees, many who have been with him since our early years in the business, and his family.
Chris and his wife, Maria, truly value commitment to service and community, with their roots strongly planted in their commitment to family. With Aubry, their middle schooler and Aiden, their high schooler, both deeply involved in 4H and FFA, weekends are often spent caring and working with their animals and livestock. Both Chris and Maria have served on the Board of Directors for the local Chamber of Commerce, are active members of the Farm Bureau, in addition to Chris serving on the Heritage Foundation, Maria serving on the Knightsen Town Advisory Council and co-leader of the Knightsen 4H Club, where Aiden serves as Club President.
They also know how to relax by making family time a priority whether it’s a never ending game of Monopoly or enjoying a glass of wine or whiskey next to a fire pit. Chris has created a lifestyle that aligns with his passion for hunting, and a shared love for the great outdoors and camping with Maria and the kids.
