About this pro

I truly enjoy working with people to create their vision and their perfect personal space. A home is a haven and a place to disconnect from the external pressures of our daily lives. We can help you achieve this by listening to your preferences and observing the styles you love. Let us help you discover peace of mind. 

I enjoy the creative problem solving that this industry provides through its unique puzzles, and the variety of interesting people I work with. No two days are alike and every project is a new challenge.

How did you get started in this business?

I was apprenticed to a Master Builder when I was 22 years old after flipping homes for a few years. My Realestate Agent introduced us and we worked together for more then 5yrs.  I built my first spec home, on my own,  when I was 28yrs old and my first custom home when I was 32yrs old.  Now at 44, I have been building and remodeling for years.   I truly love this industry and working with home owners, and designers to create someones perfect vision. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We recently took over building a vacation house in Manson, for a past client.   The contractor they chose originally,  was a local GC but they didn't connect well, which translated into a failure in communication.   This led to some unprofessional behavior on the Contractors part and they ended up having to let him go.  We stepped in and were able to give them peace of mind thru a  committed schedule and controlled budget.  We believe that attention to detail and communication are essential to any success.  


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

The best advice I could give would be to make sure you feel comfortable talking to your General Contractor.   There are no silly questions. Ignorance at any stage can be expensive and being able to discuss things openly will make the experience more successful, and less stressful. 


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

I suggest making a binder or file of styles or designs, even finish work you like. Hardware or colors,  cabinet stains or floorplans which you want to incorporate into your dream home.  It can be an inspiring selection, or a detailed element you want to incorporate.  This can facilitate a more thorough understanding of your desires. And the better it can be explained,  the easier it can be created.
