They say if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life. Growing up with my father being a general contractor, I have been around all aspects of construction nearly all my life and truly enjoy working with my hands and wood. My specialty for many years was 75% rough construction and 25% finish work, and my company's main focus was framing with over 30 employees. At our peak, we framed five spec homes every week, including occasional 8-10,000 sqft homes, which could take months. Having hands-on experience in constructing nearly 1000 homes and virtually every aspect at one time or another, I have gained a vast amount of knowledge.
During the housing bubble of 2008 in AZ, the residential construction in my area came to a halt as most of the homes were second homes (vacation homes), and the nearby towns reported unemployment rates as high as 31.3%. Fortunately, I fell into a project at the beginning stages of building a resort on the Colorado River near Needles, CA, and upon completion, I stayed with the company and oversaw all construction and maintenance. The resort grew to include two full kitchens, three bars, a general store, a marina, and an RV park. I learned a lot about HVAC and even became certified in specific tasks. I did a lot of preventive maintenance, repairs, and replacement of heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems. Working with electrical contractors and engineers over many years, I am only 1000 hours away from obtaining my journeyman electrician's license.
Eventually, the heat became too much, and I moved to Montana. Over the last five years, I have honed in on my finished work skills and taken on new projects, from complete sets of cabinets to milling my lumber for countertops, window casings, and doors. Now, I work solo on projects and am much happier this way. I am very organized and efficient in my workflow, and I genuinely enjoy starting a project and seeing it through to completion. If you've made it this far, thank you. Please contact us, and I'd love to turn your ideas into reality!
