Building is a dynamic, constantly-changing industry. The scope of possible designs and the tremendous variety of materials continues to grow every day; codes and regulations, safety and liability, and environmental concerns are just a few of the complications and pitfalls that can turn a building project into a financial disaster or an emotional nightmare.

A small investment of time and money spent with an experienced guide can repay big dividends.

My experience has given me familiarity with all aspects of the building industry. It's been my pleasure to work with scores of talented and dedicated craftspeople and suppliers, and my success has been partly thanks to them. I am happy to recommend them, as well as a select group of General Contractors who share my committment to quality and innovation.
