How it all began…..

Ola Ropponen migrated with his family from Sweden in 1983. In 1986, Ola started an apprenticeship with his father Rauno.

Rauno was a master at his craft – designing and building beautiful homes. Ola soon discovered his fathers’ strict work ethics – “work hard, never compromise on quality and always be honest and respectful in your business relations.” Rauno’s valuable instruction put Ola in good stead to start his own business in 1993. Since that time, both Summer Homes and Summer Pools have become well known on the Mornington Peninsula for their high quality work.
