J & L Home Center hosted the class for a business visit on Thursday, February 7. J&L Home Center is a customer home and custom cabinet builder in Daviess County. The business was founded in 1976 by John, LeRoy and their late father Noah Knepp. John's sons Jason and Jordan are now partners in the business making J&L a 3rd generation company. John opened up the visit with a historical background review of the business. In the beginning J&L was basically and building company. Today, it is considered a premier builder of custom homes in Daviess, Knox, Martin and Dubois counties. J&L opened up a showroom in 1993 that sells a variety of Amish furniture along with an area to look at their custom cabinets.

Mike James and Jordan Knepp are involved in the development of architectural drawings for both homes and cabinets. Both gentlemen explained the process of designing a home from the initial computer designs to the final installation of cabinets, plumbing and electrical work. The class was also treated to a tour of the cabinet shop, where custom cabinets are made from the ground up, painted and prepared to install.

The class would like to thank Jason Knepp, Mike James and Jordan Knepp for an eye opening experience and also for the doughnuts and drinks.
