It might have taken some doing back in 2010 for the McKee brothers, Patrick and Michael, to start the home building company that bears their surname in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

He’s manned the night shift at some of New Jersey’s biggest casinos, saving patrons from the occasional jammed elevator. He once oversaw operations for an iconic theme park, where he maintained roller coasters and made sure the lions and rhinos had a warm place to sleep.

It seemed a risky move back in late 2011 when Gary Wood, all of 30 years old and tired of toiling for others, went forth with his own construction company at a time when builders in the greater St. Louis area were having trouble finding work. “I had a lot of people tell me it […]

True custom homes are as much art as abode, but building them isn’t without stress for contractors and clients alike.

The clubhouse at “The Warwick” was like a ‘70s dream and a 21st-century nightmare: a round room, sunken floors, gaudy furnishings and wall-to-wall, out-of-date décor.

Brackish waters, tidal creeks and marshy banks are staples to coastal Charleston, South Carolina. Without the famous waterways that flow along its banks, this historic city would not have risen and flourished to the charming destination it is today.

Few things can deteriorate like a big unmaintained building, and the folks of Greensboro, North Carolina, were constantly so reminded when they ventured just north of the downtown. For it was there where much of a sprawling, once-teeming mill complex had been crumbling since its looms ceased operating in 1982, there being little need in […]

When Perry Rittiner defers credit to his employees, the founder of New Orleans-based Rittiner Equipment Co. isn’t merely being modest; he’s being practical about an industry that requires a lot of training just to get by. “You don’t find these people everywhere,” Rittiner says of the more than 100 men and women in his employ, who […]
