I began in the tile trade in 1976 as a Union helper in Hawaii. In eight years, I worked my way from apprentice to foreman, and then got my own license. I opened my own non-union Tile contracting business in 1984. With as many as six employees, we did residential and commercial jobs up to 20,000 square feet of Porcelain tile flooring. We were the exclusive tile contractor for Liberty House of Hawaii for over ten years, until they were bought out by Macy’s. We were on the Recommended Contractors Lists from Daltile and four other tile suppliers and had several General Contractors who used us exclusively. After 25 successful years, we tired of the rat race and moved to beautiful downtown Kasilof. I have no employees in Alaska, and like it that way.
My primary specialty is Custom Tile Showers, although I thoroughly enjoy any installation. I completed a residential installation in July that had 4800 sf of 6×36 plank flooring, a six foot square shower (with ceiling0 and two tub surrounds.
I anticipate continuing my business until 2023- Good Lord willing, and the creeks don’t rise.
