Our Business Roots.

     The Kuszmaul Family has been in the custom home building and land developing business for over 95 years, during which they have developed over 200 acres of land and have built literally hundreds of homes and buildings. John Ross Kuszmaul started the family tradition back in 1924, building bridges and homes around northeast Ohio.

 

 

     Throughout the Great Depression and World War II, the Kuszmauls relied on their natural ability to make a living with their hands, the very trait that their ancestors back in Germany had been doing for century's before. 

 

 

 

     During this time, all six of John's sons worked for the family business. Three of them; Glenn, Wayne, and Elton decided to stay in it as a lifetime vocation.

 

      Elton eventually branched off on his own and start a cabinet building business and later, his brother Wayne became his partner in Kuszmaul Builders as they built homes throughout the area. Their reputation for quality grew as did their business.  Like their father John, they too relied on the next generation of Kuszmaul sons and cousins to help out with the family trade.  It was during this time that Elton became active in advocating for his trade and was elected as President of the local Home Builders Association in 1979.  He later would become a State officer and also be inducted into the Home Builder Hall of Fame.   

As the third generation grew older, many of them moved away and found other vocations. Elton's youngest son Paul stayed in the business and followed in his fathers footsteps.   In 2004, 25 years after his father, Paul became the first father-son president lead the Home Builders Association.  Paul too, moved on to become active in the State Home Builders Association and  received the Top Gun Award for the state of Ohio in 2004.  Today Paul and his sons carry on the family tradition of quality in everything they build.  This quality can easily be seen throughout these pages as well as throughout the countryside.
