The RCH Custom Home Contractor Team
Owner, Director, and Licensed General Contractor of RCH Custom Homes
RCH Custom Homes was developed soon after, and rapidly grew into a successful home building company. Raymond prides himself on being a home contractor that provides attentive customer service, professional management, and quality project work. Hunting is also a passion of Raymond’s, and he loves to spend his summer evenings on the lake with his wife Lynn and their seven children.
RCH General Manager and RCH Home & Design Manager
Having grown up in West Fargo, ND, Shawn attended Mayville State University, attaining a degree in business education in 1998. Shawn then moved to San Antonio, Texas, where he served as a high school teacher for five years. In 2005, Shawn moved back to Minnesota with his family and settled in Hawley, MN, with Shawn entering the construction industry. After Shawn and his wife, Chastity, built their home with RCH Custom Homes in 2015, Raymond recognized in Shawn a strong work ethic, an intelligent problem solving ability, a keen eye for detail, and interpersonal strengths which match the predominant personality style of RCH Custom Homes staff. Raymond invited Shawn to join the RCH home contractor family, and Shawn accepted. We count Shawn as a welcome addition. Shawn and Chastity have three children. When not spending his free time with his family attending school and sports activities, Shawn can frequently be found golfing or watching Minnesota sports, being an avid Vikings, Timberwolves, Wild, and (especially) a Twins fan. Shawn and his family also enjoy relaxing in our lakes area with extended family.
Mike Byrne & Brendan Witt
Field Project Managers
Mike & Brendan work closely with Shawn and Liz to make sure all RCH projects are progressing forward. They are on-site monitoring and tracking the progress of each new build. Since they are out in the field, they handle a majority of communication between subcontractors and the RCH home contractor team to ensure quality in every project. Mike & Brendan possess a wide variety of construction skills that allow them to fix problems and complete tasks themselves as they arise.
Mike is originally from Grand Forks, ND and after some time in Washington, he and his wife found themselves back in the North Dakota/Minnesota area. Mike has 4 daughters and 6 grandchildren that keep him busy when he is not at work. He likes to fish, hunt, golf and read.
Brendan is originally from Sidney, Montana, he and his wife Shay reside in the Detroit Lakes area with their 3 children. Brendan enjoys hunting, fishing, camping, art, history, hockey, general carpentry, taxidermy, and all things mechanical.
Interior Designer, Elizabeth “Liz” Roerick, originally from Iowa, went to school for her Bachelors in Interior Design at Harrington College of Design in Chicago, IL. She moved to Detroit Lakes with her husband in 2016 and is passionate about designing in the lakes and surrounding areas. With almost 10 years of design experience, and 4 years of construction experience, she loves the feelings that come out of a great design project. The feeling of awe in an impressive space, the feeling of balance and comfort in a neatly designed home, the feeling of safety and belonging, and so forth. Design is way more than the eyes can see. She loves to help people create a space they’d love to spend time in – new and old. She finds it very fulfilling to watch a non-functional and without character house gradually transform into a vibrant and inspiring home.
