where he as built five of his own cabins, along with eleven personal ponds. He lives on his property with a wife, two children, three excavators, five or six tractors, three bulldozers, 3 Bobcats, and several ATVS and snowmobiles ... If it's got an engine, he probably owns at least two. Oh, yeah — and he's got a beautiful woodshop that he loves working in along with a herd of cows and two dogs.

Bakaitis grew up on a farm where he learned the skills that he's known for today, that of a master fabricator. He can fabricate anything from scraps. In fact, he doesn't believe in dumpsters and throws nothing away, knowing someday he'll likely need it for a repair or a future invention.

The hardest-working man in the dirt business, Bakaitis hasn't taken three days off in a row in over thirteen years. He believes in building things for yourself, developing character through hard work, and incorporating bacon into every meal.
