Mission Creek Blog


At Mission Creek we like to build things and build them well. Nothing makes us happier than to see a finished project, built to exceed the customer's expectations at a reasonable price. We enjoy creating something people can enjoy for years to come.

Like Jack Nicholson in the Shining, we also know that "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." So, we all have hobbies beyond the worksite. Some of these include: history, science, technology, and nature. Many are related to enjoying living in this area with a harsh climate but with never-ending wonders.

In this blog we want to share some of these interests with you. The topics here can be just about anything. Sometimes the subjects are purely recreational and sometimes they may be related to our business and construction. Sometimes they are related to construction, approached from an unusual angle.

In these blogs we also hope to create something people can enjoy for years to come. We hope to give you something good to read.
