Shortly after Josh graduated from The University of Wisconsin River Falls in 1998, he began framing houses with a couple of childhood friends. After 2 ½ years, he went on to become the Railing Manager/Installer for a local company. Josh installed deck railings, built decks, and installed maintenance free fences on a variety of projects.
After about two years he moved to a career in sales with the same company, selling maintenance free deck material, deck railings, fences, outdoor spiral staircases, and other decking materials. Josh and Bill then joined up to create UglyDeck, a company of Minneapolis deck builders.
Josh is married and has three children – two sons and one daughter. He has lived in New Prague for the last 10 years.
