About Us

We are John and Lisa Gergets, and we aren’t professional builders. We’re just two people with a boatload of will and might, creating a simpler and more financially free life for ourselves, and a secure and safe place to live for our family.

We live outside Grand Marais, Minnesota, on five acres of glorious Boreal forest, nine miles from Lake Superior. 

Grace Beneath the Pines is a song by Glen Hansard. It deserves attention on this site, because it describes so much for John and I. (I do not own any rights to this song.)

So here we are, in the beautiful northwoods of Minnesota, building our dream! And we are grateful you’ve decided to come along for the ride!
