MCL Construction, originally founded by homebuilder Matt Lovell, seemingly had overnight success. However, Lovell is convinced that his custom home-building company wouldn’t be where it is today without his background, expertise, and a few good Deere machines.
When starting out in the home-building business about seven years ago, Lovell he knew what it meant to operate a company, thanks to his experience in the bricklaying industry. At 25, he was already bricklaying for a contractor who worked on 40 to 60 houses a year. Once this business took off, Lovell started acquiring compact machines to dig footings and do other underground work. First, he built a home for himself, then he built and sold another. It was the beginning of a new business.
