Why did you open a business in the Vail Valley?

I was tired of working for somebody else. I’d been the engineering supervisor at the Vail Cascade and deciced I wanted to work for myself.

What do you do?

I do pretty much anything around a home except paint and carpet work ” you can get those done better and cheaper by other people. But I do electrical and plumbing work, carpentry, framing, building decks, installing flooring… You name it.

How’s that working out for you?

Very well. I’m busy all the time and I love the work.

What concerns you most these days?

Right now there’s such a demand for work, but the economy may impact us sooner or later. I just did three estimates for projects in the last week ” and I’m not expensive ” but the homeowners turned me down. They said they just couldn’t afford it right now.

I’m worried about the next 12 months. The economy has everybody worried.

What would you like clients, or potential clients to know about your business?

I’ll do anything from the smallest job to a whole-house remodel. I’ll return your call and be out to your place the next day.
