“Last year David Stagner won this contest with the ‘Trigg County Barn Houses’ concept,” said Ronnie Sadler, talking about the Dream Big in Trigg entrepreneur contest. “He built an unfinished spec house out near Prizer Point, and it has been sold to an active duty military couple.”
Stagner owns the Trigg County Barn Houses business, and said last week that he has plans to build at least three other houses in the county. He says the idea started a little more than a year ago with the Dream Big in Trigg contest. Sadler helped come up with the idea for the contest.
“The idea was to try to generate jobs and to try and bring revenue, new dollars, into Trigg County,” Stagner said. “My father (Delbert Stagner) had been in the construction business for years, and I grew up pulling wires, swinging hammers. And my dream was to sort of re-fire, rekindle his business.”
Kevin Raber, a veteran who has served in a Special Forces group through Fort Campbell, is the one buying the home, and his wife is a psychologist on the base. He said Cadiz and Trigg County were rather unknown to them, called it “the best kept secret for everyone in Fort Campbell,” and said they’ve fallen in love with the area.
