Q: What sort of work do you do on an average day?
On a typical day, I follow up on leads and prioritize projects. I often go out and speak with clients and gather information about what they want to do. I also spend time setting up preliminary designs, laying out a plan for how we should proceed and working with the estimator to put a proposal together.
I work mainly with residential clients, although I do some work with commercial clients, too. I do a lot of renovations and additions as well as new homes.
Q: What was your favorite project to date?
It’s not so much the projects as the people. For example, we recently did a renovation for a couple whose sons had contracted with us for some other projects. They had an old 1800s stone farmhouse with exposed stone walls, and we did an in-law addition with two kitchens, a large master bedroom and bath and a new two-car garage. We almost doubled the size of the home. But for me, the relationships are even greater than the work you end up doing. You create friendships with people. That makes the work enjoyable.
Q: What other aspects of your job do you enjoy?
It’s also fun to see the end result of a project and how everything comes together. We recently did a kitchen renovation and breakfast nook addition, and I enjoyed working with the clients to design something to fit in with the aesthetic of the home, to give the kitchen a better flow and layout. I like the design side of it, the creative aspects.
Another favorite part of my job is the collaboration between our team members. We bounce things off of people all the time to see if anybody else has had a similar experience. It’s a huge benefit and something I enjoy.
I also appreciate the flexibility I have in my job, the ability to learn and grow and make decisions knowing I have the backing of Ken and Randy and the Weaver team. It’s a very freeing and comforting place to work, a place where you feel like you can grow.
What do you like to do outside of work?
Outside of work I like spending time with my family. I have four sons and two daughters. I also like to play and watch sports, especially lacrosse and football. I have a son and a daughter who play lacrosse, so I enjoy watching their games. We also really like watching movies together.
