Lori Olafson

After graduating with a business degree,  Lori spent 17 years working in the pharmaceutical industry while doing renovations and decorating on the side. When she left the pharmaceutical industry 16 years ago,  she was able to pursue her life’s passion and studied Residential Interior Design at the University of Alberta.  She established Poetry Homes in 2011 and has been able to work for great people as she builds and decorates homes.


After graduating from NAIT with Construction Engineering Technology, Steen gained experience working for three years with a commercial general contractor in Edmonton specializing in the multi-family division. During this time he received his C.E.T. designation through the ASET program. With all the experience he gained developing condos, townhomes and hotels, he wanted to take that knowledge into the home building industry. He joined Poetry Homes alongside his mom and with his knowledge has become a integral part of the home building process.
