Signature Homes

The good news just keeps on coming, the aptly named Chris Carpenter muses from the Nashville satellite of Alabama-based Signature Homes. For while the capital of Tennessee still may go by the moniker of Music City, far more than records are being made in this thriving southern metropolis with a climate largely spared extremes and […]

Custom Remodelers

Craig Carpenter says he is not the jack-of-all-trades, he’s the master of one—and that suits him just fine. On the cusp of celebrating a 30-year anniversary in the home remodeling business, Carpenter remembers starting up Custom Remodelers in Lino Lakes with brothers Kevin and Chad and older sister Corinne. Back in the early days, growing […]

Self Serve Lumber & Home Center

There aren’t many such enterprises still in existence, not when the competition is the big-box store. But here in and around central Michigan, the Self Serve Lumber & Home Center chain isn’t just surviving, it’s thriving—seemingly unfazed by the ubiquitous Home Depots and Walmarts. Then again, it preceded the gargantuan retailers by decades. It also […]

Porter Contracting

Eli Porter, owner of the Florida-based company Porter Contracting, has decades of experience to draw from to help him hold tight to his standards in the booming Florida real estate market. Still, his youth spent playing sports sticks with him. The importance of being a team player, for instance, has left a lasting impression and […]

PF Custom Countertops

When a company’s stock in trade is designing, supplying and installing countertops and assorted fixtures, it helps to know more than just materials and methods. Staying ahead, or at least keeping pace with consumer trends, is just as important in this very competitive end of the residential and commercial construction industry. That has summed up […]

Countryside Construction Inc.

The grass is only greener over the septic system if it’s been designed and installed properly, which is why a lot of lawns are lush in and around the community of Canyon Lake in the foothills of Texas Hill Country. Since 1981, many homeowners and small businesses in the area have come to rely upon […]

Mike Dolbec – Windsong Custom Homes

It was a mild, mid-autumn day in Williston, North Dakota, when Mike Dolbec answered a call from Blueprint, but the friendly president of Windsong Custom Homes couldn’t talk long. For winter comes early in this northwest corner of what’s sometimes known as the Roughrider State. The mercury still in the 60s, there were foundations to […]

Carol A. De Young – Countryside Plumbing and Heating Inc.

Just business as usual, Carol A. De Young tells Blueprint in late October, and for customers of Countryside Plumbing and Heating Inc. in western Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota, that’s cause for comfort. Though she anticipates retiring as president, likely in 2019, De Young assures that family-owned Countryside will keep on keeping on. It’s been six […]

Jason Schlunt – Bellows Plumbing, Heating & Air

Patience is both a virtue and a sound business practice, especially in the residential HVAC and plumbing construction industry. Building solid customer relationships takes time and requires providing honest, prompt and professional service, time and time again. It doesn’t matter how small the job, every customer and every home matters. It is a tenet that […]

Testerman Restoration

Heavy snow is a rarity in and around Knoxville, Tennessee, but that doesn’t mean the skies there are always forgiving. Indeed, Amanda Moore remembers a spring storm of not too many years ago, when golf-ball sized hail hurled from the heavens like rocks from an angry God. For many homeowners, a blizzard would have been […]
