Since August 2019. Dean and Donna Lange, owners of Stoney Ridge in Burtrum, have worked hard on building the latest accommodation guests can rent through vacation rentals by owner (VRBO) — a lighthouse.
The couple’s daughter, Kendra Lange, has also been instrumental in the amount of work that has been completed. Working side-by-side with her father nearly every day, it has given them an opportunity to spend more time together.
Kendra said that before COVID-19 restrictions were put into place, she had worked with event planning at a hotel, but lost her job when the pandemic hit. However, the job loss allowed her to work with her dad on the lighthouse. It is something both Dean and Donna are very thankful for.
“We didn’t know she was going to stick with us this long, but we’re glad she did because we would have been in a world of hurt,” Donna said.
Since then, Kendra said she has learned a lot from her dad when it comes to construction, such as running saws, laying floors, measuring, and more.
Dean and Donna are very thankful for the work their son, Sam Lange, the owner of Rolling Rock Trucking and Dozer Excavating, has done, as well. Sam built the road to the lighthouse, helped with all of the foundation work, pouring of the concrete, landscaping, and more.
