About Us

As a small-town boy from Yale, Oklahoma, Byrum Strader grew up building things with his Grandpa “Bampy” Strader.  Grandpa was a handyman and taught Byrum to utilize his time and tools wisely.  As a member of FFA, raising and showing cattle and participating in youth rodeos, Byrum realized how hard work and dedication could pay off so he continued to work hard for others.  With the support of his father, Rusty, he graduated with an Associate of Science degree from Northern Oklahoma College.  Being the first in his family to graduate college, Strader transferred to Oklahoma State University where he pursued becoming an Agriculture Teacher, but with the lessons learned during his part-time employment, Byrum decided his life’s journey would take a different path.  As an employee of a local construction company, Strader experienced first-hand the nuts and bolts of just what went into large structural projects.  He dreamed of running his own company and someday building projects himself on a smaller scale.

In 2004, Byrum established his own business, Strader Building LLC, and started making his dreams a reality.  With some of Grandpa’s old tools and his own small collection, Strader hired a couple of buddies, advertised in local papers, and soon built his first production, which was a wood-framed 20×30 storage building.  Business continued slowly but surely and projects eventually grew bigger and stronger. Soon it evolved into an all-steel building company.  The company performs as a subcontractor under many respected businesses around Oklahoma and the surrounding states, as well as a general contractor on many local projects.

Byrum’s wife and business partner, Lyndee Strader, is also a small-town kid who grew up outside of Perry, OK, raising and showing sheep with her family.  She was an active 4-H member and served in many leadership roles in high school.  She attended Northern Oklahoma College in Tonkawa, OK, where she met her husband, Byrum.  Lyndee continued her education at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, OK, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Agriculture Leadership. She then returned to the University for employment until it was soon time for her full attention and administration at Strader Building, Inc.

Today both Byrum and his wife, Lyndee, operate Strader Building, Inc. and are very blessed with their opportunities and success.
