Meet Zook & Pepper
”Your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love.”
-Nate Burkus …
The name Zook & Pepper came from marrying Zack’s (“Zook”) & Stephanie’s (“Pepper”) childhood nicknames together into one, just as they’ve done in life and with their respective trades.
Licensed and insured contractor, 2nd generation builder and recent real estate graduate, Zack Smith has been on a jobsite with his dad since before he can remember. In kindergarten, when asked what he wanted to do when he grew up, he always said, “I want to build houses!” Zack has hands-on experience in almost all the trades and loves creating things (including children- the couple has 4).
Stephanie’s grandmother instilled a love in her for creating beautiful spaces from a young age. She would rearrange and redecorate her room and dollhouses on a regular basis and remembers studying blueprints and visioning what the rooms would be like in reality. As she got older she took classes in drafting and architectural design.
When Zack & Stephanie married and built their first house together in 2002 they decided then that this is what they love to do and have been building for themselves and others ever since.
Their ultimate goal is to see their client’s happy with the finished project and know that they helped fulfill a need & (more importantly) a dream.
