Not to be Forgotten
I shouldn't forget to mention that we did a lot more than preservation
work. We took on an increasing number of new construction projects as
well. It's hard to be challenged in this arena because everything is
so predictable. But we accepted some unusual jobs, and they kept us
interested. We hired supervisors to manage the more routine aspects.
This is a "play-house" for millionaire Jeff Kerr, owner of Horizon
Corporation. (Actually, I've never seen the guy play - even on Sunday
afternoons when I'd stop in to work on his suite of offices he'd be there
with a team of businessmen.. enjoying themselves - but certainly not
playing. Work-a-holics, no doubt, but I've never seen that he suffers
because of this hypothetical affliction.) We also restored the mansion
up the hill from here (not seen in this photo) and installed a huge
outdoor pool and 2 story bath-house.
After going on my own I worked for one of Jeff's partners on his new
mansion - a log home with indoor waterfall and 18 hole golf course. All I
did was provide the cedar shake roof - about 4 acres of it.
