Abe Thompson, Founder

Abe Thompson grew up on a small buffalo ranch in rural Kasota, Minnesota. He credits his work ethic to his years learning the subsistence way of life associated with farming in southern Minnesota. Later his family moved to Grand Rapids, Minnesota, where he grew to love the north woods and lake country. It is here where Abe started his foray in construction, laboring for Master Craftsman Roger Meyer at the age of 12. Most recently Abe has moved to Duluth, Minnesota, from Juneau, Alaska, where he worked on many institutional projects with McGraw Custom Construction. Currently Abe focuses on raising his two children, Hugo and Maeve, while growing 12,000 Lakes Construction.
