What is our origin story?

Brad's background is rooted in home-building. After completing his education and trying out a few different jobs, he was offered a job in construction. With no prior knowledge of the industry, Brad quickly learned on the job through hands-on training from experienced subcontractors.

These skilled professionals proved to be a wealth of knowledge and helped shape Brad's understanding of the construction process and all its moving parts. This education, along with his experience in operating a sawmill and working with metal, gave Brad a comprehensive view of the entire building process and the impact of each step.

Brad's background in sawmill operation, in particular, has proven invaluable in his current work. Understanding the importance of the sawmill operator in determining the final product and its overall quality, Brad saw the value in being involved in this process from the start. His two to three years of experience in sawmill operation helped Brad understand the bigger picture and how every aspect of the process affects the end result.

Overall, Brad's background and hands-on experience have equipped him with the knowledge and understanding needed to create high-quality products, from start to finish.
