"Providing you, your family and your business 6 generations of time tested top quality craftsmanship”
These 6 generations have withstood the test of time and technology and always continue to please our customers. But where did it all began? In Ohio in 1848 with William Emmons and his wife Lavina Deffenbaugh. William started a Brick Layer/Mason with the intent of supporting his family. His son, Joseph William Emmons, enjoyed the family business so much that he learned the trade. Joseph moved to Illinois with his wife Etta Jane Curtis and took the business with him. They would go onto have many children.
The oldest, Alvin Joseph Emmons, “Hoot” as he was nicknamed, picked up the trade and took over the business from his father. Together with his with, Agnes Rose Emmons they had 3 children. Their oldest son, Alvin William Emmons Sr., learned from his Grandpa Joseph the trade of plaster and stucco. Alvin Sr. and his wife, Virginia Ann Nelson, had 8 children. All of their children would help out during the summer months of high school and college but Alvin William Emmons Jr., “Bingo”, would take the reins on the family business. Beginning at the ripe age of 12, Bingo learned from his Grandpa Hoot. Because he started so young, Bingo took time to perfect his skills early on earning the respect of clients and his coworkers.
In 1987 he married his high school sweetheart, Deb. The year before Bingo officially named the family business to Creative Construction of Wisconsin Inc. Bingo and Deb had 3 awesome children. Samantha, Zachary, and yours truly, Kaitlin. Although we all had a small stint somehow in the company, Zachary showed the most interest and so Bingo began passing on his craftsmanship. Although there is currently no 7th generation, Deb and Bingo sure hope there will be!
