"I was 16 years old when I first started lifting homes. I met Duffy Fisher in my back yard in the Highlands, and he gave me a chance. I knew from the time I saw that first house going up that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. We did it one jack at a time. Even though the technology has changed and advanced over the years, I still put my heart into every job." - Pete Sommer, House Lifter
