"We've had people come out to our job sites and try to court our rough carpenters," said Tom Hignite, owner of Miracle Home Builders, in Richfield. "I'll drive up to the site now and it's not unusual for me to see one of my competitor's vans parked out in front. Short of putting up a chain-link fence, there's no way to keep that out."

But Hignite said he himself isn't averse to taking down the name of a subcontracting company if he drives by a competitor's home-construction site and sees a crew whose work he likes.
Hignite said rough carpenters - those who build the framing of a house - are tougher to find because they labor outside in cold weather and sometimes work in high places.

The good news is that Tom Hignite has gathered a small group of animators in his new studio and they're working on a hand-drawn animation theatrical feature about a character called Miracle Mouse. From Tom Hignite after a tour of the Disney studios as reported in The Times:

...
Dimples would be remiss if we didn't include a section in this story about Tom Hignite. Who is Tom Hignite? The publicity photo at the top of this story would lead you to believe that he's an animator. He's not. He is the owner of "Miracle Homes". He's a housing contractor and, apparently, an over-the-top Christian. Dimples assumes that's why he names everything "miracle". From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Hignite acknowledges he had relatively little experience in animation when he began planning a studio. It took about a year of research before he could start looking for artists, he said.
His home-building business, which he also began with little experience, started in 1993 with two home sales. Last year, it sold 220 houses with a total value of about $42 million.
Hignite said he got into the business by selling a home he built on a lot that had been given as barter to his father. Hignite then quit his job as advertising manager for a boat dealer and started building houses full time.
Hignite said he drew the Miracle Mouse character, which has appeared in promotions for his home-building business for several years.
Some observers say the hard hat-donning Miracle Mouse looks a lot like Mickey Mouse, but Hignite said the character is unique, and he doesn't think it infringes on any Disney copyright.
Miracle Mouse looks like Mickey Mouse and the opening page on Miracle Studios' web page looks like the opening to Disney. This is not a good thing. Mr. Hignite may have carried too much baggage from the world of suburban sprawl into the world of theatrical animation.
