A Venture into home building


Chad Glasser is as busy as a 28-year-old man can get.

During work hours, he’s the owner and general contractor of a growing home building company, as well as a real estate agent. He also makes sure the truck stop diner he and his wife, Brittni, own in east Dickinson runs smoothly. The rest of the time, he’s a husband and father of three children ages 4 and under — the youngest of whom is less than 2 weeks old.
