What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Graduated University of Kentucky in 1977. I have owned multiple Real Estate and Construction companies in Central Kentucky over the last 45 years... completing 1,000s of residential and commercial projects.

I am certified in Green Building, Lead Paint Removal, Mold Remediation, Asbestos removal and am versed in most all areas of construction.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.
We will review in detail our consulting and project management building options and costs in our first meeting.

If you want us to handle the total project we have programs for that also.
Bottom line if you want to build a home and save money and have instant equity once completed, give us a call 859-338-0191

How did you get started in this business?

I started working in residential concrete construction in between class work at U of K. After graduating.. instead of going to Law School (Took 1 course...not for me) I decided to further my building career.

Over the last 45 years I have launched and developed successful real estate and construction companies on 3 continents... in addition to owning UBuildIt, a construction consulting franchise for over 20 years.

What types of customers have you worked with?

We value clients that want the most bang for the buck in their build, a healthy home enviroment as well as a low operating cost after the house is built. “Green Building” is more that a check list with us…it’s the use of quality building practices that promote sustainability to make a home healthier and more energy efficient. Interested in Superior Walls, ICF, SIPS, Icynene, Spider Fiberglass, tankless hot water, high efficiency heat pumps or Geothermal heating and cooling?…we build with these products everyday. We endeavor to assist all of our clients to secure energy efficient, clean and environmentally friendly homes. Our efforts have been recognized across the community by building homes that are compliant with “Energy Star” and “LEEDS” quality standards.

When it comes down to deciding design criteria or making specific product selections, we will give you the facts to make qualified decisions. For example, when we bring in hard cost numbers on various HVAC systems we will quantify the price differential with the ENERGY EFFICIENCY increase or decrease. That way you can see the clear picture on the potential payback. We will do heat load calculations on your home (and specific building envelope design) such that you will know your total annual utility costs BEFORE we even start building!

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

In evaluating a builder you need to first find out his experience. You don't want to hire a novice and pay for his mistakes. Also ask for a ballpark cost for your project. You also don't want to waste time on a builder that will not fit in your budget. Third ask how competitive the builder is and what his network of subcontractors and suppliers looks like. Long term relationships that the builder has built with his team will foster your projects success.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

For our first meeting please bring any home plans, pictures or floor plan ideas so that we can discuss your project parameters and then I can give you a ballpark cost estimate. We will also review the various build programs and costs we have for those services. It is also helpful if you have a copy of the property plat and subdivision covenant and restrictions.
