At one of the MANY local groups that gather to talk about the trades, we met Rochelle Gray, a teacher at Eastway Middle who wanted to start a “DIY Builders Club” at her school. She was tired of people saying that they wanted to participate and nothing happening, so she decided to go rogue and just bring in some of her own tools! 

We heard the call.

We reached out to some of our About Your House Family Businesses, all reliable and vetted tradespeople, to find out who had the time and energy to give right now and we had our first team: Nick Miczkowski, general contractor, owner of Adirondack Group LLC. Juan Carlos Castillo, supervisor for custom home builds, Mike Palmer Homes. Tony Long, owner, and operator (and teacher and mentor), Mint Hill Tool Rental And of course, our crew at About Your House Radio, Ray Terry and Walker Spruill.
