I can do just about anything. No Job is too small for me.
I pay meticulous attention to detail and I make sure all jobs are done right the first time.
Since the 1970's I have worked in fine homes, rental properties, businesses and the entertainment industry. I have worked for residential and government contractors, designers and individuals on projects, large and small.
When applicable or necessary, I create and work from 3 dimensional computer concept drawings and CAD (Computer Assisted Drafting) to get a project started and for approvals before beginning work. 3D Conceptual renderings help a client visualize what the design will look like before it is actually built.
I can show you some samples of my 3D concept rendering and the finished product.
Contact me to discuss your project!

Questions and Answers
What kind of questions do customers ask you?
How much will It cost?How long will it take?
What is important to know about your profession?
Often, people do not realize the amount of labor that goes into a project that is unseen.Planning is as much an integral part of preparation for a successful outcome as the production process itself.Higher quality results often take a little more time to achieve but that time is more than worth the investment. In addition, higher quality materials combined with the time in the workmanship and techniques used for the outcome will always result in a better product that often lasts for years and generations.
I have always been interested in design, art, building and how things work and how to make things better. During the 1960's and 1970's, I was fortunate to make my living in the field of commercial art. I later wanted to expand to real world projects and was able to learn the crafts of the building trades.I also had the opportunity to become involved in the entertainment industry in the 1980's and 1990's where I was able to integrate real world and fantasy concepts into objects from scenery and props to trade shows, theme parks, exhibits, attractions and events.Working for myself now, I integrate all that I have learned and continue to learn from every job.
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
Is there "more than meets the eye" involved in the job?In other words something that cannot be determined until work commences?
Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
In some cases ongoing maintenance for things like seasonal finishing of decks is an important part of preserving and extending the life and beauty of the wood.Also, I will be happy to provide a schedule for any other kind of maintenance.
What types of jobs are the most common?
These days and in general, repairs. People are trying to save money and get the most out of things. This is a good thing, as many items manufactured today are of poorer quality and end up costing more over time.
What we may not know about you?
I treat every job as if I were doing it for myself or someone that I love. Therefore I want things to be right the first time and to last. My job is to work myself out of a job.
How can we save money hiring you?
I always advise these things:Plan. If you make the major decisions that affect the direction of any job, large or small, before work starts you can avoid costly mistakes and buyers regret.Quality. Materials, products and workmanship with the highest quality available will always outlast and perform better over time than cheap imitations and knockoffs. This is true for everything that you buy or make or build. The reason is simple: when something lasts over time, you save repair and replacement costs.
