I’m Erik Johnson, and I started woodworking when I was in junior high. I have enjoyed creating things from wood ever since. I like spending most of my time with my wife and 5 kids. Road trips are some of our favorite activities.

I started building homes at 2 years old with the help of my grandfather, uncle, and father. I have sawdust in my veins that has been passed down from my father’s side. We have been carpenters since 1843 when my forefather learned the carpentry trade back in Brevik, Sweden. I have always had a desire to be a builder and carpenter from the time I was little. Through a friendship, I was introduced to Lynn Peterson. Lynn and his boys have created a fantastic company to work in and because of that, I have been here for 20 years.

The best part of my job is being able to interact with and teach the people around me some of the skills that I have learned. I also really enjoy taking the ideas of the clients and helping them create the home of their dreams. I look forward to many more years of helping those here at Peterson Builders and the wonderful clients we work with.
