Here’s what I mean. I was building with building blocks and Lincoln Logs not long after I started walking. When I was 5-years old, I had a toy tool belt, workbench, and hammer to “help” my father with work around the house (“get in the way” might be more appropriate). As I grew into an adolescent, I graduated to more sophisticated construction toys like Erector Sets. And when I reached high school, I developed tremendous fervor for architectural design. So, yeah—to say remodeling and construction runs in my veins is the understatement of the year.
After I graduated high school, I gravitated to carpentry. I worked for other contractors and performed side jobs for years. As time went on, I married my beautiful wife Glenda and we had four wonderful children. As the years passed and our family grew, my wife and I decided we needed a bigger house. And that’s when I truly decided to put my passion for carpentry to use.
