Love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life, right?
I’m not so sure that is true in the construction business; though I definitely love my craft. When I was studying as a pre med student in college I had to force myself to do the work. Now I have to force myself to quit for the day. After graduation (and realizing that being a ski bum requires income) I went to work as a carpenter in Truckee, working on multi-million dollar homes in Lahontan, Martis, and Northstar. This is where I fell in love with what homebuilding can and should be. From there I moved to the Bay Area, North of San Francisco where I worked for my uncle doing half million dollar remodels on multi-million dollar homes. My uncle taught me that the only corners a craftsman should cut are miters and copes. I learned that the patience to do something right the first time pays in the end. These valuable lessons, along with my passion for design and craftsmanship, are like the cement, sand and aggregate that form the foundation of my business.
