Austin Hauslohner


Born and raised in southwest Virginia, Austin Hauslohner has over 18 years of construction industry experience. Taking an interest in carpentry at an early age, Austin began learning the carpentry trade before graduating High School. He then went on to obtain two trade degrees in Construction Technology during his college years. After completion of college, Austin spent many years in construction material distribution in both sales and management. Austin also focused on construction design and drafting throughout his career. Having worked as a carpenter, project manager, and retail sales manager, Austin brings a diverse skill-set to the team at Setter Construction.

Nat Elliston


From an early age, Nat expressed a desire to “be a landscaper or a building builder.”  As the son of a landscaper, Nat grew up with a shovel in his hands. Early in his adult life he became interested in outdoor education but was reluctant to let go of the shovel.  He lead groups of young people building trails from Virginia to Alaska and many places in between. Growing tired of the seasonal lifestyle he moved to Blacksburg, got a dog, but never lost his love for physically demanding work and the pride that comes with a job well done. He is excited to be working with his hands again with Setter Construction, fulfilling his lifelong dream of being a “building builder.”

Wesley Smith


My name is Wesley Smith and I have been in the construction industry for the past 12 years. I have always found construction interesting and an ever-changing industry the poses challenges that truly engages the mind in real-life problem-solving. I studied Architecture in college and have found my true calling. I started Setter Construction because I wanted to bring back the true craftsmen mentality that carpenters/contractors used to be known for. I hope to have a positive impact in the contractor world by showing and teaching others that we have a responsibility to do the best work we can each and every day.

“In the Fall of 2019, Setter Construction attached a Trex deck with a clear poly roof to our 100+ year old house. Wes and Austin were professional, friendly, considerate and efficient. The processes of estimation, engineering, preparation, scheduling and construction were organized and transparent. We are currently in the process of scheduling two more projects with them. We look forward to a long and lasting relationship with Setter Construction. If you’re looking for quality work, the team at Setter will be your best choice.”
