  • Description

    I'm a general contractor in the process of trying to slow down a bit, move into a partial retirement, and travel more. I have built and remodeled homes all around the north side of Atlanta. I became a contractor because my passion is woodworking and architecture. Since I also love travel and meeting new friends, I seek opportunities to practice my work in new and interesting locations while making new friendships and learning new skills. I also love sailing and anything related to boats or water as well as kayaking, hiking, cooking, and listening to live (or great recorded) music of all kinds. You can verify my state license in good standing at verify.sos.ga.gov .

Work that I have done.
I built all of the cabinetry in this project. The mirrors as well. In this project we took the roof off the house and built the new bedrooms and bathrooms in the old attic space.
Homeowner hound a picture of this door detail online and I copied it for her.
