Fostering Effective Relationships:
The building process is all about relationships: Trust. Integrity. Accountability.
First and foremost, the success of a building project is greatly enhanced by the quality of the relationship between builder and homeowner. A well-developed report, a sense of trust, and effective communication promote focused energy and creativity for the project. Integral to this trust are the qualities of integrity and accountability. When the right relationship is developed, the outcome of the project is invariably greater than initially envisioned or anticipated.
Relationships also exist between builder, supplier, and labor. Building trust and ensuring a sense of value help to bring a group of professionals together as a team, each valuing their role in the greater process as well as the project outcome as a whole. This allows for a harmonious interaction and interface between the different aspects of the project, fostering effective solutions to project challenges and ensuring efficiency, continuity, and craftsmanship.
Finally, a keen understanding of how different materials and the systems in the home (structural, insulation/building envelope, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, etc.) relate to one another, is essential in building a project that has a very high level of quality in efficiency, durability, and comfort.
In My Bones: For me, building things is second nature. I have always been drawn to the physical world of structure, sculpture, joinery, and design. I derive a keen sense of satisfaction in building, particularly when the finished product is useful and enjoyable.
My early professional career benefitted greatly from the mentorship and culture fostered by my family’s residential building company. What set us apart at Randhsire Bldg. Corp., was a culture of building with integrity, and caring as much about the "bones" and mechanical systems of the house as the observable finishes.
Quality craftsmanship is the skilled and artful execution of a building trade that stands the test of time both in design and longevity. Further, craftsmanship imbues honesty in building: workmanship from the foundation, to the framing, to the trim and finishes. Beautiful finishes imply that the structure underneath is of the same high quality.
The Right Skillset:
Renovation and addition work require a specialized skillset: Acute problem solving skills and a keener understanding of structure, the way systems in a home work together, and finishing skills to bring about seamless continuity between new and old. This same skillset provides for new building of exceptional craftsmanship and quality, applying best practices developed out of an understanding of problem areas in older, existing homes.
