When I started in this business in 1980...

 ... Drafting for the firm that designed the Bay Pines V.A. Hospital, in St. Petersburg, Fl, I had no idea I'd one day be in the field swinging a hammer. But after 9 years of collar and tie, 9 to 5 work I burned out and decided to try the field for a change.

The first year out was tough.

I joined with a commercial, rough carpentry company company because I was impressed with the level of commitment and dedication they expected from their crews and gave in return.
The work was hot in the summer and cold in the winter and I suffered many a purple thumb and rain or shine, we had to show up.
I wasn't sure till the second year that I wanted to do it. But midway through the second year I reached a turning point and I never left this business for very long after that.

Now, with over 30 years of residential building experience and 5 years of Commercial construction management experience I'm here to help you in your next home project.
