OWNER AND YOUR PERSONAL BUILDER
Let me tell you my story, before we begin to build your story. I grew up in the home building industry in the Midwest. It was a small farming community where many of my friends and relatives were in the building industry. My uncle was a builder, and another uncle was a roofer. My father, he wired houses and built buildings when farm work would allow.
In the mid 90’s, my wife, Amy and I moved to Georgia where she continued earning her early-childhood education degree. I began a remodeling and home repair company. We contracted home remodels, reroofs, and additions in the North Atlanta suburbs.
Upon Amy’s graduation, we moved back north to the Midwest, where I worked for a local home builder. In the Midwest, the builders I knew and worked for were more hands on. We would actually do all of the work, except the trades. I am proud to say that I am a multi-faceted builder from this exponential time in my life. I have dug basements, done grade work and excavation, poured concrete, framed, installed soffit, facia, doors and windows, roofed, installed sheetrock, installed trim doors and cabinets, painted and stained houses. I enjoyed working with my hands to craft quality homes. The comradery of the team and sense of accomplishment from a job well done were highlights of that time for me.
In the late 90’s, I had decided to go back to school for a master’s degree, which brought us down to Texas. We attended a local church and I became friends with a new home salesman that worked for a local builder. I also found part-time work as a superintendent and warranty serviceman for a local builder in Duncanville. Eventually, my friend and I began a small custom home building business and built a few homes together. It worked quite well for us, he had sales experience and I knew construction. It was different for me to call subcontractors to do most of the work and many were surprised that I had experience in their field. This was a great way for me to pay for my schooling.
In 2005, I began building custom homes in Ellis county full-time. We built many homes in one acre lot subdivisions and tried our hand at smaller homes as well. We even built a few commercial projects in Midlothian and Waxahachie.
