Valle Group Carpenter, Al Ouellette was born in Great Lakes Illinois but moved to East Falmouth with his family when he was still in grade school. He started in carpentry immediately after graduating from Falmouth High School. Though he considered pursuing a career in environmental work (after having fallen in love with the outdoors while doing Appalachian Trail maintenance with the Youth Conservation Corps), Al soon decided that carpentry was the right path for him.
Over the past 30+ years in the Trade, Al has mastered all aspects of carpentry from frame to finish. He spent a number of years working on the road for a construction firm that handled restaurant re-brandings for national family restaurant chains. Al spent 8 years as a Navy Reservist and achieved the rank of Builder 3rd Class. When not at work, Al enjoys spending time hiking and camping on The Appalachian Trail. So far he has covered Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. Al resides year-round in East Falmouth with his wife and has one adult son.
