About Gerald Hingtgen – Co-owner and Project Manager H&H Home Builders
His customers and sub-contractors know him as ‘Gerry’, his everyday work includes estimating projects, working closely with our clients, managing the day to day activities and scheduling contractors for our jobsites, he’s also well known for his insistence on quality workmanship and is himself, an accomplished wood worker.
Gerald grew up around the building trades where he and his siblings helped their father, as part of his side work remodeling old homes, apartments, commercial sites and also helping with the construction of several new homes while on summer break and after school hours. “I dreaded the coming of summer vacation from school….but it taught me a very important work ethic”. He later attended Iowa State University where he studied Art and Design and graduated with a BA Degree in Landscape Architecture, 1992. His education focused on the planning and functional design of spaces within our landscape. He learned to be a steward of nature by working with the unique situations that a particular site has to offer instead of forcing static ideas onto a site which always create problems later. In order to properly site an element (a home) into the landscape to achieve longevity and sustainability one must understand how to read the given conditions of the site and possess the creative insight that’s needed to solve problems and capitalize on the subtle advantages that each site has to offer.
Gerald feels very fortunate to be a vital part of quality growth and development in our area and would like to offer his services to you as part of your next quality building experience.
