Craig Evert-Owner
Since childhood, Craig has been around skilled-trade type work. His father, who taught him the trade, dedicated his time to the home improvement industry. Following in his father’s footsteps, Craig wanted to pursue a career where he too, could help turn clients’ dreams into reality. As an outdoor enthusiast in every way, he couldn’t see a more natural way to spend his time than to help others create and build the outdoor living space they have always dreamed of having. He has been a General Contractor since 2001 and in 2012, he made the decision to shift his main focus to the outdoor living space. Craig may be the owner, but he also helps design and build every new project. His hands-on technique is something he sees as a “crucial element” to building client relationships and ensuring customer satisfaction from start to finish. Unlike most other outdoor living companies, Craig chooses to stay Brand-Loyal to the manufacturers who supply the materials used on each and every project. This means, that regardless of the economic shifts in supply/demand, his loyalty will remain with the manufacturers that provide our high-quality and maintenance-free materials.

Carrie Evert-Owner

Carrie is in charge of the office side of things and helps with operations. She joined Craig on his mission to create and build outdoor living spaces in 2014, after moving from Perrysburg, OH to Mason, OH. She grew up as a Produce Farmer in Tiffin, OH and has been an outdoor enthusiast herself since childhood. She graduated from a small community college with a degree in Business Administration, and showcases an outstanding 15 years in Professional Human Resources at one company. She decided to change her career path to help grow the business when Craig decided CMR’s main focus would be outdoor living. After previously dating in high school and going their own respective paths, Carrie and Craig were reunited and married in 2014. They now share the business, a total of 4 children, 2 dogs and several ducks.
