Historical Renovation

Historic Restoration is a process to repair structural, cosmetic, or other damage to a building while preserving the original character and design integrity of that building. Limberlost Construction enjoys the restoration of historical buildings to their original stature and glory. Our attention to detail and quality of work helped us build our reputation as in the Historical Restoration industry.

We see positive reminders of Limberlost Construction every day. Geneva Town Hall Historic Renovation

Our office, as clerk-treasurer of the Town of Geneva, Indiana, is located in the historic Pyle Building in downtown Geneva. A building completely renovated by Limberlost Construction in 2003, the “new” Pyle Building includes town hall, police department and a community center. After more than three years occupying the building, we couldn’t be more pleased with every aspect of the renovated facility.

After work, we go to our new home on Rainbow Lake, also built by Limberlost Construction. During construction in 2005, we were impressed with the attention to detail and the positive, and constant, communication with Limberlost Construction.

History of Limberlost Construction

Limberlost Construction was formed in the spring of 1982 by three brothers, Marvin, Kenny and Mike Schwartz. In 1985 Mike sold his shares of the corporation to his two brothers and moved his family to southern California where he started another construction company building new homes and apartment complexes. In 1987 Kenny decided to seek other career choices and sold his shares to the last remaining partner, Marvin. In 1990 Mike, along with his family, moved back to Indiana to enjoy Hoosier living and bought back into Limberlost Construction. In 2003 Marvin left the business to pursue his calling in ministry.

Mike and Dayon Schwartz now run this family business. Although there have been some obvious changes in the business since 1982, the one thing that has not changed is the basic belief in upholding high quality in all our building projects and the importance of meeting schedules that are in budget.
