Traverse Homes is a design/construction firm that has been building in the

Grand Traverse region for over 30 years.


The owner Hank Ramsby, is an accomplished carpenter in his own right and has been involved in the construction business since he was 18 years old. 


He learned construction from the ground up having been taught the finesse of how buildings

go together by old world craftsmen.


By 22 Hank found he had an aptitude for construction and at 26 started his own business with the idea he could design and build more efficient and energy conscious homes.

During Hank's career he continued his schooling, studying architectural blueprinting, energy conservation, engineering, and interior layout, perfecting his unique approach to building design and construction.
