Hobby / Fun Fact:

I run 3+ miles every day and enjoy kayaking.

I designed my last house and built the stairs, installed the radiant floor heating, put in all of the plumbing, built the kitchen, installed the hardwood floors, and trimmed the entire house. I have ripped the electric out of a house and rewired the entire house. I have remodeled several kitchens, and have installed so many toilets that I don’t want to count.
