The builder is responsible for both the integrity of the construction and the integrity of the attitudes of the job. My personal preference is to act as a team comprised of the client, designer, and builder. I look at drawings and the concept and imagine it in my mind’s eye, so when I’m actually going in to build something, I already see it finished and I’m just reeling it in. Being able to communicate well, having a level of diplomacy, being able to present many different types of information, and being able to work well with people, which involves practicing patience and compassion. This is how I approach projects.
