Favorite type of construction projects to work on:

  • I like to build things in general. From wood, metal or concrete I enjoy the hands on part of creating usable buildings. Historic renovations come with natural challenges and unknowns that peak my interest and challenge my problem solving skills.

What’s your favorite phase of construction:

  • The first day on the site. Move the job trailer into place, set the project sign and layout the building foot print.
