History

Our family roots stem from a long line of builders, craftsman and industry professionals that date back to the early 1950s.

John Woolsey, grandfather, was a building professional involved in the construction management of the California Aqueduct project, which stretches over 700+ miles to provide fresh water to the dense populations in arid southern California.

John Woolsey later moved back to Missouri where he was involved in Woolsey Surveying Co. for several years with his father Leon John Woolsey.  After his father’s retirement from the surveying business, he took a position with a commercial construction company. John Woolsey had a career in the building industry that spanned nearly 50 years and he earned a reputation for excellence in his work.

Rod Woolsey, father, was a builder and hands-on craftsman, he founded Integrity Builders in the early 1980s. Integrity Builders later included his sons, Eli and Leon Woolsey. The father-son team worked together on many projects in the 1990s until 2001.  The homeschool curriculum for Eli and Leon primarily included responsibilities of mastering skilled trades and learning the building business from their father.
