Robert Paxton


Rob started construction at the age of 18. As he was raised on a farm as a kid, he always was taught to build and fix things, but at 18 he started to actually learn trade work. He began first as a window installer, and then went on to begin learning different trade work from carpentry to drywall, plumbing, tiling, taping of drywall, trim carpentry, and finish carpentry. He soon realized that a lot of people rush to get things done quickly, but miss out on some very important aspects of the job, and would always have to go back to repair. He found if you just slow it down, pay attention, and focus on the work that you would achieve, great workmanship can occur. He also realized that technologies and products are always changing and you always have to learn and keep up with the current times. And depending what it is on the project, the older ways are better, but there are times when new methods and products are superior.
