Like so many other entrepreneurs, Bobby Wiegman started his dream business in the garage. In 1999, after leaving his corporate job and with skills learned as a pipefitter and firefighter in the U.S. Navy, he began building projects. Then he started selling and servicing fireplaces. By 2007, the multi-dimensional family business, Wiegmann Woodworking & Fireplaces, had outgrown its space and moved into its own building in Damiansville, Illinois.
Today Wiegmann’s is the go-to place for fireplaces, which they install from start to finish. A visit to the large showroom offers a world of ideas, and illustrates just what a wide range of options there are, including fireplaces, logsets, inserts, and stoves. There is a vast array of styles available, from elegant to contemporary, country to sleek and everything in between. Because fireplaces are a specialty, the experienced staff can help you find the designs that fit the feeling you want to achieve. In addition, the company has gas specialists and a certified chimney sweep on staff to help ensure the fireplaces will always be safe and work properly.
At the showroom, you’ll also find design elements—doors, mantels, stairs and stonework—plus outdoor living products. Customers are welcome to come and browse, but for specific needs and consultations, appointments are suggested.
On the woodworking side—which is now the smaller part of the business—Wiegmann’s operates an in-house finishing shop that allows them to custom stain anything, and with the ability to match different types of woods, such as fir windows and pine doors. That’s a boon for anyone who’s ever bought an old house to redo!
