PBI awarded Business of the Year 2015

Peterson Builders was named Business of the Year from the Ogden Valley Business Association.  There was a banquet held and Ashley Cross of New World Distillery presented the award.  Here is a review of the presentation.


Nominations were solicited from all 80-something members of the Ogden Valley Business Association.  We had board-member nominated companies, member-nominated businesses and even a few self-nominated businesses.  Nominations counted as votes and this is the process that led us to name Peterson Builders as this year’s Ogden Valley Business of the Year.  I’d like to share a little information about this year’s honoree:

In 1976, Lynn Peterson started Peterson Builders at a shop by Lynn’s home in Eden.  It wasn’t until 8 years ago that they built the building over in the manufacturing zone, behind what is today, the Weller Allstate and Washworks building. 

Lynn Peterson is mostly retired now his sons, Ben and Jason Peterson, now run the company.  Lest you think that the patriarch of this family is not involve in the process, let me share a little story that will prove otherwise:  I first met Lynn Peterson one day, in the conference room, where we had the plans for New World Distillery all splayed out on the table.  Ben asked Lynn to come in and show us how we could make the building look “cooler”.  Lynn showed us a few things that will indeed make this building “cooler”.  This showed the company’s main goal in action:  “To insure that the customer’s goals are not only met but surpassed” So, while Jason describes his dad as “mostly retired,” I think the word “mostly” needed to be qualified.

There are several Peterson siblings who work for the company: David and Drew Peterson; Ben and Jason’s sons, Mason, Ryan, Porter and Jacob work in the summer months.  This is truly a family run business. 

The Peterson Builders’ motto is “Professionally Built with Integrity.” 

In 2013, Jason Peterson was named Builder of the Year by the Home Builders Association of Utah.

Ben Peterson has served as an at Large member of the Ogden Valley Business Association as well as Secretary and Chairman.  They have allowed the OVBA board of directors to invade their conference room for monthly meetings and they have allowed the OVBA to use their storage facilities for deliveries of maps, phone books and other items.

In 2014, the Peterson Builders received the People’s Choice award in the Northern Wasatch Parade of Homes.  The winning home was built for Scot and Judy Kelly in Huntsville.

We are honored to receive this award.  We thank the Ogden Valley Business Association for all they do for this community.

Small Space Solutions

Do you have small rooms or spaces that need a little organizing or an adjustment?  We have gathered a few ideas to help you make use of those hard-to-deal-with spaces.

Here is a great example of how to use a loft or over-the-garage room that may have low ceilings.
The shelves built in to the top create great design space.  The beds each have their own storage under the bed and in the middle wall.
If you have a small laundry room, shelves and cabinets are great places to put all the detergent, fabric softener etc.  The dark paneled backing gives this space dimension. 
Shelves above a toilet in a small bathroom are great for decorations and storage.
We love the usefulness of this closet space.  This little office set up is perfect, with the overhead lights, book shelves and extra chair.  It looks inviting and has great functionality.
If you have space on either sides of your fireplace, make bookshelves.  This example is so fun and appealing.  Books don’t have to be lined up perfectly.  Could possibly make good wine storage as well.
We love this cozy kitchen.  Utilizing the back wall for storage and a small countertop is all you need.

We hope these have helped you disover some new ideas for those small spaces.

Builder of the Year – Jason Peterson, Peterson Builders Inc.

Jason Peterson, Builder of the Year

We would like to congratulate Jason Peterson for winning 2013 Builder of the Year!

Jason started  building over 20 years ago with Peterson Builders Inc., and quickly discovered the industry was riddled with regulatory issues impacting construction practices.  The endless parade of codes, ordinances, rules, and laws prompted his involvement in the Home Builders Association.  Working through the Home Builders Association, he has helped shape and improve the industry.

The obvious need to protect property rights and keep housing affordable, originally drove him to join the Home Builders Association, but lasting friendships have held him.  His peers found fit to elect him as Northern Wasatch Home Builders President.  He filled this position with vigor and passion.  Jason has served the state for the past 3 years as senior leadership. This position offered him an opportunity to mingle with the finest professionals in the state.

Jason continues to pursue contracting.  Each home Peterson Builders builds is a tribute to his character and reflects the integrity that has come to define him.  The quality homes built by Jason and Peterson Builders, have brought untold joy to the families living in them.  He truly deserves the honor of Builder of the Year for the state of Utah.
