Peter settled in Grand Marais after a transient career of log building, basket making, timber bridge building, and teaching timber skills on public lands. He is now a professional timber framer and designer and has been teaching timber framing at North House since 1998. Peter has taught black ash basketry and paddle making courses, but now focuses on timber framing and spending time with his family (he's a man who's rich in daughters).
