ONCE UPON A TIME
in the year 1974, there was a happy homemaker and stay-at-home Mom named Bobbie whose children had reached their teenage years. Her husband, who was a subcontractor, decided that she needed a career. Over the years, he had seen firemen become home builders during their 48 hours off, and school teachers build houses on their summer breaks. Therefore, think of what an empty nester mom could do with the chicks out of the nest for most of the time. Thus, a new career was opened up for me, and I became a home builder.
I thought it was fun picking out plans, choosing colors, and all the good stuff that goes into designing the interior of the home. I wasn't nearly as fond of going out to meet subcontractors and getting bids. Being assertive was not my comfort zone, and being only one of two female home builders, there were not many ladies whom I could exchange ideas with, but you learn to do what you have to do.
My goals were always to build a "home" that would be unique, well-built, and affordable. That continues to be our goal as a company today.
