ABOUT HESKETT CONSTRUCTION
At the age of 15, in 1974, Daniel Heskett started to do shingle roofs for customers that he had on his paper route. In 1976 when he graduated from high school he started the company known as Heskett Construction. He continued building the company in the evenings while attending Shawnee State University, where he studied Civil Engineering. In 1978 the company had grown to 3 full time carpenters and Daniel had a decision to make, follow the career path of becoming a surveyor (his major in college) or devote full time to the construction business. He chose the construction business.
By this time, the company was completing whole home remodeling projects. In 1982, he ventured into commercial construction where they completed turnkey buildings for the C.C.I. Prison State of Ohio, school projects, churches, doctor offices, carry outs, and various other commercial projects. In 1988, he switched gears and completed his first multi home project. It was a 21-unit home design-build project in Portsmouth, Ohio that was completed in record time. Daniel was drawn to the home building industry because more attention could be given to the building project and he valued quality craftsmanship. He then started to build custom homes on developer’s lots, both contract and spec homes. In 1990 he purchased a 101 acre farm and started his first development. Since that time, Heskett Construction has designed and built over 100 custom homes in Ross, Pike, and Pickaway counties. Heskett Construction has not forgotten the remodeling industry, still completing numerous exterior, kitchen and bath, roofing, and whole house projects. Daniel is very involved in the building and remodeling of the homes, from designing the projects on the Soft Plan drawing system to swinging a hammer in the construction process.
