Since early childhood I have loved architecture, design and building. I began with millwork and moved onto bigger projects from full home builds to major luxury home renovation projects. My carpentry apprenticeship was very dear to me. I loved every part of it, well except form work in the cold rain. I did my training for Home Inspection and joined a large Inspection firm. I then went onto to get additional training and enjoyed almost 5 years working with them as their lead home inspector. Now, here I am, loving what I do! Helping people, educating clients / agents, building relationships and feeling blessed to have the knowledge and training to do such work.
Andy got his start in the building industry in his teens, working for his family's construction company. His passion for heritage design, construction techniques (both new and old) and fine craftsmanship developed over the years as he worked under several master craftsmen and then on his own as a restoration carpenter and general contractor. He has received various awards, including a Preservation Award given by the National Park Service (US). Andy is inquisitive, passionate about fine homebuilding and is always interested in learning about the both traditional and modern building methods. Joining The Inspector, Andy is excited to share his enthusiasm for building technology and to help others understand their home.
