Builder's business runs through three generations
A photo gallery of this Mystery Place is HERE
The building that now houses Stebnitz Builders is not a historic building, but the company spans three generations. It is currently located in the 1100 block of East Geneva Street in Delavan, across the street from U.S. Bank.
In 1990, they built their building on Ann Street. Because of the downswing in home construction, they sold their building on Ann Street and are currently renting part of the Bauer Glass building. This is the building that is pictured. Part of this building also houses the Keefe Realty Office managed by Mary Kilkenny, as well as Bauer Glass.
Stebnitz Builders was begun in 1972 by Stanley Stebnitz. In the beginning, he worked out of his home in the Delavan Inlet. He had three sons, all of whom have worked at some time in this business. In 1985, his sons David and Dan bought the business.
David became a teacher. While he was in college, he worked for his father during the summer. He is now retired.
Gary also was a college graduate. He came back to work in the business. He now has bought out part of the business. You will see that in Delavan as Kustom Kitchen Designs Ltd.
Dan, the third son, remained with Stebnitz Builders.
He more or less started full time in the business after high school. He is in charge of sales and production. His daughter worked in the office for some time.
His son, Ryan, also worked for the company for a few years. He is now a firefighter in Madison.
David’s son, Chris, became the owner of the business in 2005. He is the sales and brand manager and a certified aging-in-place specialist.
As Dan told me, Chris helps keep the company in the 21st century.
