In 1994 Cooper Wade began working for Hutchins and Wade Builders in Big Sky Montana. The company had been started by his father Larry, and his business partner Jim Hutchins. Larry Wade began working in construction in 1974 and began building in Big Sky soon after graduating from Montana State University in 1979. After working at all aspects of carpentry, he began concentrating on interior trim work over the next several years. Larry then started a full service cabinet shop in 1990 which has grown to produce the cabinetry, entry doors, and interior trim, which compliments many of the homes, built by Wade & Associates Builders, Inc. During the winter of 1991 Larry teamed up with Jim Hutchins to build homes as Hutchins & Wade Builders.

Starting as a laborer, Cooper worked through all aspects of residential construction from framing to finish carpentry as well as several years in the cabinet shop. In 2001 Cooper became a project manager for the company and soon after Larry and Cooper had the opportunity to reform the company as the family owned business now known as Wade & Associates Builders Inc.

Cooper lives within 10 miles of his childhood home near Gallatin Gateway with his wife, 2 kids, and 3 English Setters. While building a family as well as custom homes, Cooper has been an active member of the Gallatin Gateway Rural Fire District since 1993 and served as the Fire Chief from 1997 until the spring of 2014. At this time Larry retired from the trade and Cooper assumed the full responsibility of running a custom home building business.
