My name is Paul Harms & everything I have learned about the trades, I learned from people smarter than myself. I received my baptism by fire in the strictest construction market in the country (Calfornia) where painting requires a license (seriously) and it seemed like a permit was required to put up masking (joking, but you get the idea). I worked my way through college in the mid-80s doing drywall, tape & float & texture. Over the years I picked up other skills by generally making a nuisance of myself and working for free in trades I wanted to learn. In 1989, I hired on with a commercial construction company where I eventually worked up to project manager. It probably helped that I was married to the daughter of the owner. In 1993, it got awkward with divorce pending & I went to work at another company. In 2001, I took on a partner and we started our own company. In 2016, I had had enough of the California beauracracy and moved to the Austin area. I also brought 15 relatives with me and our family alone raised the property values in Central Texas.
