Craig Coursin purchased a business he admired so much that he has changed virtually nothing about it. The new owner and President of Carlson & Erickson Builders, Inc. in Sister Bay, has known John Sawyer, the previous owner, for many years. Sawyer built two houses that Coursin designed nearly two decades ago. Coursin, a registered architect, previously operated two construction companies for 11 years in the Milwaukee area. He says he expects a seamless transition under his ownership with minimal disruptions to the existing business model.
After vacationing in Door County for twenty years, Coursin became a homeowner in the area seven years ago. He and his wife now live in Little Harbor, Town of Sevastopol. He mentioned that his firm is always recruiting quality people and skilled craftsmen.
