So You Can Enjoy the Simple Moments

Just about everyone dreams of having their perfect porch. Maybe yours is screened. Maybe it’s open. Maybe it’s supported with beautiful columns.

Whatever the design, a porch is a place of leisure, of comfort. They beckon you to slow down and enjoy the simple moments in life. They give you shade from the hot sun and offer you a space to sip on a refreshing glass of iced tea, read a book, and watch your children play.  Of course, you can also mount a flat screen on the wall and watch your favorite team play on Saturday.

That’s the beauty of a porch. It’s a place to relax and share time with loved ones.

What I do is simple. You give me napkin sketches and magazine clippings. I ask a lot of questions. You ask a lot of questions. We establish your wants, needs, expectations and budget. I guide you through the process. And then I build what you want.

I’ve been doing this for over thirty years. I’ve built enormous homes in some of the best neighborhoods in Alabama. And I’ve built and restored country homes way out in the middle of nowhere. The job description doesn’t change with the zip code or the budget. Nope. No matter where you live or how much you have to spend on this project, it’s my job to listen to you and deliver a quality porch that’ll make your friends envious.

Here’s a glimpse of what I can build for you:

  Open Porches

Don’t hire just anyone to build your porch.

Hire me.

Because I’m —

Look, I get it. Sometimes you don’t always know what you want. What you do know is that you don’t want to overspend, you don’t want to be stressed about the project, and you want the porch to last. Done, done, and done. I’m here to respond to your questions, guide your vision, diagnose any issues, and do good work.

With over three decades of framing and building experience, I understand the planning, the expectations and the emotions that come with home building projects. Which is why my approach is more collaborative. We’ll review all your sketches and magazine clippings, discuss your lifestyle and needs, I’ll answer your questions, offer my professional opinion — with respect to your budget — and then build the porch you need.

  On Schedule
I show up on time every day, work hard, and finish the porch on schedule. My crew is efficient, diligent, and timely.

  Budget Conscious
If you’ve saved up, great. If you didn’t quite expect to make this a big purchase for the year, that’s completely okay. We can work together to build something that will last you for a very long time — no matter if the budget is big or small.

We clean up after ourselves and leave your house in order. It’s our goal to be as low impact as possible, and to deliver you a quality product as quickly as possible so that we’re out of your way.

  Detail Oriented
I care about the small things because I know the small things matter. They matter to anyone concerned with delivering quality workmanship. Which I am. I care about my craft very much. I care about how much you love your porch and what you say to your friends when you have them over for dinner.

I want your porch to lasts for decades. For it to be where you relax with a good book. Where you share iced tea with loved ones. Where you celebrate your team’s win.

I take my work seriously. I know which issues are often overlooked. I know how to diagnose problems and quickly solve unforeseen circumstances as they arise. And I know how to pivot and compromise when life gets in the way of your perfect planning.

I couldn’t do those things without tons of experience. Of course, pride in my work and obsessive focus help too.

The right porch at the right price.
