Artisan Home Tour profile: David Bieker
David Bieker’s interest in homebuilding began when he was just a boy sketching dream home ideas at the kitchen table while doing his homework, his early passion for architecture and design soon morphed into a love of homebuilding.
“My mother, who was an interior designer, decided to start building custom homes in the late 1970s. My father, who had an engineering degree from the University of Minnesota, later joined her and they built custom homes in Indiana for 20 years. I spent my high school and college years working in the family business, learning the many aspects of the construction process, and watching my mother layout and design the homes. That’s when I fell in love with custom home building,” says Bieker, president and general manager of Denali Custom Homes, based in Deephaven.
