Owner / Designer / Timber Framer / Sales

Stephen came from a broad background in woodworking that included furniture making, cabinetry, timber frame construction, and residential carpentry. With a passion for woodworking and experience working for others, Stephen went into business for himself. He wears many hats: boss, designer, timber framer, sawyer, errand boy, and self-promoter. Stephen was introduced to timber framing in a job working with a team of Belgian draft horses and a portable sawmill.

Being a business owner means Stephen is never really "off' work these days. But he does make time for enjoying the outdoors with his wife, Chanda, and three daughters, Katelynn, Marenn, and Lorinn. Spending time on the Chattooga River, hunting, and motorcycle riding are other favorite activities.

He considers this time honored craft to be the ultimate embodiment of beauty, strength, and tradition in woodworking.

A native of central Florida, Ethan moved to the Upstate in 2001 to begin raft guiding on the Chattooga River.  After 15 years of being broke, he joined the MoreSun team and said he can better afford things now!

Ethan enjoys fishing, boating, hiking and being at the river. He and his wife Kelly are having fun with their Golden Retriever, Milly, and are the proud parents of Owen, born in November, 2018.


Timber Framer

Jed joined the MoreSun team in May 2018. A native of Murfeesboro, TN, Jed worked for a general contractor and at a sawmill in high school. The Chattooga River lured him to Long Creek and he began raft guiding at Southeastern Expeditions where he met MoreSun team members Jeremy and Ethan.

Timber framing sounded interesting and Jed quickly picked up the necessary skills. He enjoys kayaking and spending time outdoors. Jed and his wife, Emily, welcomed their son in October of 2022. The family along with dogs, Dixie and Jasper, are happy to be making Long Creek their home.

Nick grew up in Maryland, then spent six years in the Navy working on submarines. He picked up woodworking as a hobby, and began working in construction after leaving the Navy.

Working at MoreSun was Nick's first introduction to timber framing, but he quickly became a valued member of the team. Nick lives across the river in Georgia, and enjoys getting on the river.



Timber Framer

Skyler grew up in Mississippi and worked mostly in restaurants. A friend of a friend worked at Wildwater and the Chattooga River enticed another future timber framer to Long Creek!

Driving by the MoreSun shop while working as a raft guide sparked Skyler's interest in timber framing. He then worked as a youth mentor at a local therapeutic boarding school and now he's an excellent addition to our team.

In his spare time, Skyler plays bass guitar, goes rafting, is picking up kayaking and enjoys hanging out with friends.

Sage is from nearby Toccoa, Georgia and grew up in her family's construction business. She picked up timber framing quickly and is a valuable member of the team.

When not working Sage likes to kayak and rock climb, and is currently building an addition on her cabin.

In his spare time Ethan enjoys slack lining and woodworking, and has an upcoming wedding in October 2023.

Frank is from Rabun Gap, Georgia. High school shop and architectural drafting classes (and a passion for snowboarding) led him to pursue a degree in Environmental Design at the University of Colorado. After college he gained experience working with 3D CAD, building science and various parts of the construction industry including utilities and residential construction. In summer 2022 he began helping with design work at MoreSun and has enjoyed learning about the precise and timeless craft of timber framing.

Frank is lucky enough to live with his wife, son and animals on a piece of land that has been in his family for four generations. He enjoys land stewardship, the outdoors, fishing, mountain biking, golf, and playing the drums.

Now she is our full-time Office & Marketing Manager; keeping the books, working on the MoreSun website, writing newsletters, and getting us into the world of social media.

Head Dog

Not afraid of tight spaces, Jasper goes where ever Jasper wants (as long as his lead is long enough.) In charge of all tail wagging duties, as well as crumb clean up, holding the position of head dog is not a responsibility to be taken lightly. Jasper's most important job though is bringing Jed to work.
