I took the project for some reasons that were clear to me and others not so clear. I’m sure a phycologist would have a field day theorizing why a person would put themselves in this position by choice. Hero complex? Superiority complex? Still trying to prove I’m better than the other guy? What better way to prove my brilliance than fixing “their” shoddy work, right? Damn that ego! Even the call from the building inspector warning me that this was a “very problematic” project wasn’t enough to deter or scare me off, although it did raise a red flag. The fact...

Patience is the word this week So I have 2 clients I'm doing too pretty good size projects for. One is living in the house and one is living off site. The one living in the house is pressing me because they want me to get finished because I'm making a huge mess and I've only just started literally within the last few weeks. And they want to celebrate T-DAY in their new kitchen. The one living off site is pressing me because they want to get back in their house because it's taken so long to do the project not...

Q. Is it hard coming into a new country and starting a new business? Not if you have a great plan! RG I came upon Pink Belts Roofing and Robyne Garten from a referral from my friend Gary Neidert when I was pitching the idea of this podcast series to him. A quick google search and email to Robyne and much to my delight a quick response. She was in fact going to be coming through my neck of the woods in a few weeks and could stop by the radio station and do a live interview. How much more lucky...

30 years ago while sitting at a desk as a phone receptionist Lisa Dritschler never thought she would be the President of a home building company in 2018. After all, everyone around her was very male and very dominating. The building industry in Texas was the wild wild west of the business world, smoky back room deals, good ol boy networks, and shady bankers made the headlines, but there was light at the end of the long twisted tunnel. Lisa was lucky, she worked for men she admired and respected, men that were willing to teach her and mentor her....

WHEN EVERYBODY IS IN CHARGE NOBODY IS IN CHARGE My friend is building a house for a couple when he notices the brick mason he's hired isn't doing a good job. He tells the owner that he's going to fire the mason and replace him and that it will cause a delay. The owner insists that the builder not fire the mason, that somehow he (the builder) can force a not very talented mason to learn to be a better mason and not cause a delay. My friend has over 40 years experience in the home building business, he is a...

Today was the start of a dream for me. I finally have a professionally designed and managed show that I can call my own. Although I have been on air for several months and have really enjoyed it, there was something definitely missing. AM Radio is fun but the audience is small and shrinking, the real audience in my opinion is social media but that is a big broad medium. I had lots of pieces started non of the pieces were tied together, the dots didn't connect, there was too much potential that wasn't being utilized. The beautiful thing about...

Tariffs on lumber, steel and aluminum have increased costs for single-family homes and larger projects By Ben Russell Published at 6:17 AM CDT on May 16, 2018 | Updated at 6:46 AM CDT on May 16, 2018 TRENDING STORIES Tariffs, Worker Shortage Raising Construction Co The cost to build a new home in North Texas continues to rise for a multitude of reasons: chief among them are a tariff on imported Canadian lumber and an ongoing construction worker shortage in the region. The National Association of Homebuilders estimates that the 20 percent tariff on Canadian lumber, which was instituted late last year, has added approximately $6,000...
