After 25 years of building homes in and around Arcata it is time to step back and let the younger carpenters take over. A construction company needs the energy of youth. These days when I see a building going up I no longer wonder why I didn’t get the job. I am glad I didn’t get the job!

My plan now is to specialize in design, project management, and consulting on smaller jobs. I am good at coming up with ideas for re-modeling projects, and pricing them realistically. I continue to do carpentry myself, which is good since I am the only carpenter left at Small World Construction! I will hang a new door, build a cabinet, install windows and trim, or take on other lighter construction tasks as required by the job. I maintain my contacts with the many subcontractors with whom I have had a long, mutually beneficial relationship over the years. Small World Construction is the same building company as ever, just lighter.

As owner, I a proud of the work my company has done in this community, and I thank all my customers for your support. I remain at the same location, answer my calls daily, and will try to help you with your construction needs. I describe my situation as “almost retired.” That means my contractor’s license remains valid, my truck is parked outside and ready to go, and my tool belt is handy.
