Joe and Lisa Hellvig purchased Hartford Building Center in June of 2008. Lisa is a lifelong resident of the Hartford area, growing up on a farm just six miles north of town. Joe grew up in Watertown, SD and after his marriage to Lisa in 1988, they planted their roots in Hartford where they have raised their family of 3 children. Joe grew up learning about the construction industry from his dad, who worked construction his entire life. After attending school for design and drafting, he was always involved in the building industry; from designing and estimating, contracting, to retail and wholesale sales, he has worked pretty much every facet of the industry. He realized his dreams of owning his own home center when he and Lisa purchased Hartford Building Center in 2008. Unfortunately, in 2013, Joe began having some medical issues when he suffered his first stroke. In 2014 he suffered another major, permanently disabling stroke. Lisa and her oldest son Travis made the decision to continue the dream Joe had started and together continue to manage & grow the business. The Hellvig family feels blessed to be living in the wonderful community of Hartford and looks forward to growing the business to meet the needs of the community.
