Learn a little more About Us
We are Steve and Beth Sharp, and our three sons, Ryan, Andy, and Josh. Beth and I grew up in Stoughton, Wisconsin, a small town in south central Wisconsin. It is well known for its Norwegian heritage and celebrations.
Leisure and vacation time have always been a big part of our lives. We have made vacation excursions on many occasions to the Wisconsin Dells, and the Gatlinburg - Pigeon Forge - Smoky Mountain area. We now have several websites including:
which discuss our travels to these areas. We hope you enjoy your vacation as much as we have.
We also have many other interests and have only begun to explore them. You can read and view some of those interests on our websites:
Our most recent challenge offers brand name home improvement products on Amazon, eBay, and our new site:
We hope you find the information you need and share with your friends.
I grew up in the home building and lumber business, being mentored by my very patient father. I was on the jobsite pounding nails at age five (mostly bent nails), and drafting home plans by the age of fourteen. Most recently, I have been a long-term employee of Amerhart, a wholesale building material company based in Wisconsin. The company is family owned and has been very successful in the Midwest.
Beth has been employed and involved with children’s education in private and public schools for many years. And of course Beth has had more than a full time position raising anywhere from 1-4 boys since we married in 1978, and to this day continues to say she still loves us! She is a very patient and loving young woman.
We were both blessed to have parents who raise us with basic traditional family values. We in turn were blessed with three healthy baby boys, and are doing our best to pass on those same values and traditions. Boys grow up fast, as Ryan, Andy and Josh have all graduated from college.
Ryan graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 2003, and is now married to a beautiful young woman, Jasmine Sharp. They recently made us the proud grandparents of two beautiful little girls. Andy graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 2006 and is married to a beautiful young woman, Kristy Sharp. They recently made us the proud grandparents of a handsome young baby boy.
Andy has been instrumental in bringing his parents into the 21st century with regards to computers and had been busy assisting us with our websites. Andy now works full time in our family business. We now operate a new business that offers brand name home improvement products on our website www.homeproshops.com.
Josh is the most recent to have graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 2010 and is now working in Madison. All three boys are assisting us with the building and operation of the websites.
We have been actively involved in community, youth sports, coaching, church, and family activities over the years. I was totally involved with a group of young soccer players for just about 20 years. I coached Josh’s team since the boys were just 5 years old, and recently retired from coaching. The boys were very successful over the years as regional champions and ended a great and final high school season as conference champions.
