Every residential construction crew has its types -- the quick-and-dirty rough carpenters, the jack-of-all trades-master-of-none generalists, and the no-detail-too-small-to-matter finish guys.
I first met John Bettman as a crew member on a house remodel, and it didn't take long to figure out he fell into the third category. No matter what he was working on -- from framing to trim carpentry -- he always took the time to get it right. All the interior detailing on that job was designed on site, and John was my go-to guy for the details that mattered: stair railings and newel posts, wood wainscoting, crown molding, etc.
Turns out, John was trained as an architect, but decided he'd rather see his designs through to completion than hand them off for others to build. He's worked for a series of high-end local construction firms, but recently hung out his shingle as an independent design/build professional. If you appreciate quality detailing -- and are willing to pay a small premium for the extra time and thought it requires -- I strongly recommend you give John a call for your next home remodel.
