Why the name “Timber Mouse”? While growing up, The father of founder Kevin W. Burke would make up bed time stories on the fly for Kevin and his sister.  One of the reoccurring characters was a mouse that lived in the wood pile in their backyard named Timber Mouse.  In the spirit of oral history and storytelling, Kevin adopted that little guy’s name for this endeavor.
