Randy’s life in the North is a classic – he has mushed dogs, planted thousands of trees on his homestead and built eight outbuildings on his property (but still no garage). He moved to the North Shore from Wisconsin in 1994 with plans to raise a family and create a new lifestyle. After buying some land "back in the woods a bit," he and his wife built a woodshop and log home, a perfect spot to raise three kids and live a little closer to the earth. With more than 20 years of woodworking under his belt, Randy has built everything from cabins to dogsleds, commissioned furniture to custom doors. Nearly all of his interests lie in the outdoors, and he says it’s hard to remember life before Cook County.
