"When I was 18, I had my first taste of building and over the years my love of carpentry has grown. Now, with 25 years of carpentry experience, I truly believe that anyone can learn to become a builder. It just takes a nurturing place to learn, a safe place to ask questions, and a mentor to give you the tricks of the trade. We are here to be all those things for you, so put on a tool belt, sharpen your pencil, and let's get building!" Lara
