The Construction business is not new to Terry. His interest in this industry was sparked when he was only 7 years old. Terry assisted his dad, who was a Drywaller. Through on the job training, he began to love what he did. Terry built a large drywall business in Ohio, working on many large custom homes and commercial work in the area. When he bought his first home, a 1890’s Era Victorian house, it needed a complete overhaul. His pastor, who was a veteran carpenter and also remodeling his home, worked with him on the remodel. They enjoyed the remodeling experience and working together, so they started a partnership. Terry taught his partner drywall. His partner taught him framing and carpentry. They branched out, building houses and working on several types of remodels.
Later, Terry moved from Ohio to Oregon, and completed training and testing to become a General Contractor. He is certified in Trex Composite Decking Installation, Metal Roofing, WINTeQ Window Installation, and Lead Paint.
Terry’s proudest accomplishments have been building an honest business with 8-10 employees on average. He’s proud of the way he runs the business, keeping the promises that he makes to customers and employees. Meeting all the interesting people in this industry makes his job enjoyable, turning their “picture” or idea into a reality. The process of acquiring the job and planning and managing the crew to make it all happen gives him great pleasure. Terry is a Christian, a husband, dad, and business owner who loves tropical places like Puerto Rico, scuba diving and classic cars.
