"During my time as an apprentice it's really opened my eyes to the hard work that goes into building and renovating, from the framing to putting in doors, it's all been a great experience and I'm still excited to learn more."

— Brady, 2nd Year Apprentice

"I feel like I've gained strong work ethic in my first year and appreciation of all the work it takes to build houses, learning how to frame and drywall will definitely benefit me outside of work and I'm happy to continue learning"
