Parmeter & Sons Construction evolved from an idea which my wife, Mary, started talking about many years ago while our family was on our annual vacation in northern Minnesota.  We continued talking about this idea off and on, several times a year and it has now become a reality.  I am actually going back to my first career after retiring from a 29 year career in law enforcement.  I began working in the building trades while in high school in the 1960s, and after spending 5 years going through the carpenter apprentice program in Minneapolis in the early 70s, I went into law enforcement.  During my 29 year career in law enforcement I continued working in the carpentry field both on my own and for several different contractors.  I have built several homes in the Rhinelander area over the past 30 years and have completed a host of smaller projects for many satisfied customers.

As I stated in our home page, we are a family owned and operated business.  Although I was not blessed with any sons, we were blessed with two wonderful daughters who married two great sons-in-law.  Our youngest daughter married a carpenter, Dan, who is the backbone of our company.


Dan had 9 years experience in the building trades, with extensive experience with log structures, siding of all kinds, a good working knowledge of residental architecture in general before he joined the family business.

After all my years in public service and my years of building experience I have found numerous highly skilled, professional tradesmen that have worked well with me through the years.  These professionals will assist us in providing you with a full service residential general contracting group that you can count on.

Parmeter and Sons Construction builds quality homes, garages, decks, porches, cabins, etc.  We do it the "right way" at a fair price.  Our reputation depends on it!  We are a fully insured company.

We look forward to working with you now and in the future.  We service the greater Rhinelander area but are always willing to look at and talk about any project within a reasonable distance.
