Design & Construction

Someone once told me, "do what you love, love what you do." I took these words to heart and wanted to get into a profession that I would enjoy and in return, people would enjoy what I did for them. This is the reason I decided to get into the design, construction and selling of residential homes. My background has extensive experience in the structural engineering, design and construction industry. This experience also includes building numerous relationships with peers, clients, subcontractors and suppliers. I feel this background is a great foundation for what I want to do and how I want to do it.
