Joined 8 years ago from Fort Madison, IA, USA
My name is Jim Patrick, and for over 35 years now, I have had a passion for helping my clients create and build their dream homes and remodeling projects to the extent that I have created my own unique job description.
I am an accomplished residential designer with hundreds of families enjoying the fruits of our mutual labor, but I also spend every day selling every aspect of building product to my clients. On top of that, I have gone through the same process some of you might be undertaking by building my own home.
In my younger days I was also trained in the mechanical trades, electrical wiring, plumbing, HVAC, and yes I even installed floor covering products. I am embarking on a journey to record for the benefit of all a series of articles on every subject of the homebuilding as well as home remodeling process.
I am also a husband, father, and grandpa who enjoys spending time with my family and friends enjoying all kinds of out door activities. I’m an avid Harley Davidson rider and also enjoy camping, hiking, boating, and downhill skiing.
PS…I hate home repairs myself because I spend every day helping others with their home repairs. So I am constantly looking for the fastest most efficient way to correctly accomplish any project around the home.
