Cory and his wife, Morgan, live in Belle Plaine with their daughters, Harper, and Kayleigh. Cory believes Busch Light should count as water, Morgan Wallen cannot make a bad song, and yellow M&Ms taste the best.
BEN KNIPP – BUILDING INSTALLER
Ben joined Freedom Buildings in 2020. He and his fiancé, Danielle, live in Elberon, Iowa.
“Yes, I like piña coladas
But not gettin’ caught in the rain.
I’m not into eating healthy,
I am into Busch Light.
I’ve got to meet you by tomorrow noon,
And cut through all this bs,
At a bar called The Office,
Where we’ll drink all night.”

Triston has been with Freedom Buildings for 2 years. A jack of all trades, I’ve been in the construction industry for 10 years. I live in Belle Plaine with my fiancé, Sadie, and our baby girl, Breya.
When I’m not hard at work, I like to go fishing, hunting, kayaking, and enjoy off-road powersports, and going fast. P.S. – Budweiser is better than Busch Light
