I'm John...

An even guy for odd jobs. A "John of all trades," but a master of many. I like to work with my hands, stay busy, do a variety of things, and constantly be challenged. I don't like to cut corners. Jobs need to be done right, but they need to be done efficiently and within a budget. Oh, and I'm bonded and insured which protects you.

I live in western Watauga county in a passive solar home on 10 acres with my wife Jeanne, who is a design professor at App State, and two kids, Jianni and Jiada. We have dogs, chickens, ducks, blueberries and apples. We love to hike and be in or near the mountain streams.

I'm happy when a client is happy and proud that many clients have become repeat clients and friends. I am thankful for their referrals.

“I had called numerous people trying to find someone skilled to help us on our remodeling project - I couldn’t even get anyone to call me back, never mind actually showing up and getting to work. I felt like I won the lottery when I found John. He is reliable, full of great ideas, and went out of his way to save me money by helping me find materials for the project. He completely remodeled two extremely outdated bathrooms, installed lots of crown molding and tackled numerous painting, plumbing and electrical jobs, among other things. He was always easy to get in touch with and willing to take on just about any task we came up with when getting our house ready to put on the market. I would definitely use his services again and recommend him without reservation.:- Kim B.

“I have used John for a variety of jobs: blueberries bush maintenance, tree trimming, bush hogging, landscaping. He is EXCELLENT! Always on time, reasonable rates, and work of highest quality.” - Rita S.

“I first hired John to help me spruce up my property before it was listed for sale. He tackled everything from repairs to cleaning up the landscaping.  John was easy to contact and had a reasonable quote for me within the day.  The work was quality and completed quickly and on budget.  Soon after, a large tree fell and was blocking our driveway.  I called John (from out of town) and he had it cleared within the day.  Again, his work was of the highest standard, no trace of the tree was left behind, and his fees were affordable.  As an added bonus, John is easy-going and friendly.  I have recommended him to several friends in the area.” - Emily M.
