Default Independent Contractor for Hire

Hey guys
My brother owns his own business. He was a union carpenter for 17 years and decided to branch off on his own. Working for a subcontractor, I see how slow the field is, so he made the right decision.

Anyways, if anyone needs work done on their house he's the guy for you.
From a simple bathroom update to a full basement, he can do it all.

He has built bars, decks, theater rooms, kitchens, you name it. Need new windows on your house ? No problem ! Want to hang new doors and trim ? I think he likes that the best !
And if you think I'm just pushing it because he is my brother just check his website.

www.qualitydesignconcepts.com

he offers free estimates and is competitively priced.
If you have any questions, let me know or his contact information is available on the website.

Thanks !!

I read that too fast and was worried. I read it again more slowly and I felt better.

If you search for quality design concepts on Facebook, my brother has uploaded pictures of the "basement" that he did in South Barrington.

If you call 4500 sq ft a "basement"

Yeah you need to do that because it supports the weight of the door. Otherwise metal all the way as the walls of a basement are not holding up the floor above.
