I started my venture into the construction industry in 1978. Over the years, I have developed what I call the "Artisan Philosophy," which is basically a set of best practices for the construction industry. If you would like to become one of our valued customers, contact me here. The photograph below is of me at the age of 19, and I still have that Estwing hammer.
I always knew I wanted to design and build things. My mother bought me Tonka trucks and Lincoln Logs to build
with as a child. It was and is always on my mind. I dream almost every night of ways to make projects better and more interesting for those who use them.
I started in 1978 when I was chosen from a handful of students to attend a new vocational high school. There were limited seats from 5 or 6 schools but I knew I would be chosen. It was my destiny you see :) I went on to be my building trades teacher's favorite student! Ha! He even entered me into a brick laying competition where I finished last because I was leveling each brick and was too slow. This level of attention to detail has served me well I think. I turned out to be a much better carpenter than brick layer. Now I just hire the brick layers!
Since then I have spent most of my career learning all that I could about my industry. I even spent 7 years in architecture and made my way up to an associate level in a local architecture firm. This experience gave me valuable insight into the world of design-build and today I am enjoying providing these services to my customers.
I offer unique experience to my customers and I hope that you will become one of them.
We had to move our website to a new server so we are currently rebuilding the website. Sadly most of the data was lost and our backups will not work. We will be working on it slowly but please contact me if you have questions about current or past projects.
