General construction firm specializing in interior/exterior trim (and other trades) sub-contracting to the N. Dallas custom home industry. Our emphasis was on site-built and installed stain-grade hardwood custom cabinetry and raised paneling, multi-tiered crown moldings and light boxes, bent-wood stair railings, custom fireplace mantels, wainscot/chair-railings, and general trim, closet and door packaging. Other significant contracts included multi-family framing/punch-out/decking/cornice and door/trim installations. When the housing bubble and savings & loan crisis of the mid 80's slowed down that sector, we transitioned into a two division (residential and commercial) general contracting and construction consulting firm. As a consultant, I wrote some very basic software which enabled me to rapidly and accurately define and quantify large scale estimates of functionally obsolete or damaged structures (homes, office buildings, condo/apartment complexes and shopping centers left vacant, unfinished or abandoned during the S&L crisis) for the real estate appraisal and property management industries. The residential division completed turnkey full home all trades remodeling, redwood deck and spa design/installation and fencing. The commercial division concentrated on retail/office and commercial finish-outs (i.e trim/cabinetry/fixture set packages for GC's doing Victoria's Secret, Corrigans, Zales, Gap stores, etc...), medium sized municipal contracts (i.e. the City of Plano Aquacenter and old municipal jail paint and remodels, RL Turner HS in Carrollton new wing addition finish out contract for all the metal doors, steel framing, acoustic ceilings, wall finishes, trim package and flooring, etc...) as well as a number of multi-family condo and apartment ceramic tile/marble and hardwood flooring retrofits.
