Favorite Quote-

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent.
Calvin Coolidge
30th Us President

Favorite Person –
My favorite person is James Madison, our fourth president and one of our founding fathers. Famous for drafting our constitution and the bill of rights. He also famously oversaw the Louisiana purchase, the greatest real estate deal in the history of the world!

Proudest Accomplish –
My proudest accomplishment is my wonderful three boys! Watching them grow up and being a positive role model in their lives gives me the greatest joy!

Architectural Style –
My favorite architectural style is Mediterranean. I appreciate the extra details on the exterior, and I like the style because a lot of the details are very functional here in Florida!

My favorite hobby is big game fishing. Marlin, blue or white, really any billfish!

STEVEN KUHARSKE

Superintendent/Team Manager

I have been in building since 1998. Time flies as they say, over the years we have built numerous houses, townhomes, apartments, commercial buildings, and commercial build-outs. One thing I love about this job is that you learn something every day. If you’re not learning as you go then you’re not doing anything. Every job is different. You can build the same house twenty times and each will have its own problem. Weather, material, lot, deliveries, you name it. We just adapt and overcome.

I enjoy every day making our clients dream a reality. My father was a contractor himself so growing up in the construction industry gives me the desire to continue in the field.

Barry was born in Glenwood, New York. As an adolescence, Barry took pride in becoming an Eagle Scout. He was involved with the scouts for 19 years where he was provided the incentive and the means to strengthen citizenship, learn leadership, and build Character. The journey continues today as he supervises our construction sites. His long time oath to “Help other people at all times, keep himself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight” has transpired to a wonderful career in construction throughout his adult life. Barry moved to Central Florida in 1985 where he married his beautiful wife of 23 years, Donna Vizena . Before starting with Leading Edge Builders years ago, Barry was employed for two major Civil Engineering companies for well over a decade. His extensive background in Construction has proven to be an indispensable part of our team.
