    Everett Andrews- getting to know your millworker- Part 1

    Everett Andrews- getting to know your millworker- Part 1

    Everett Andrews is a lifelong craftsman. In grade school, he helped his grandfather, an
    architect and building inspector, build a working gristmill. High school days were
    focused on learning the basics of cabinetmaking. A strong work ethic developed as
    logging, landscaping, and timber-framing jobs filled the days following school. While
    building furniture, turning wood, and learning about building science, a love for working
    with his hands grew into a full time vocation.
    The next ten years were spent building and remodeling many fine homes and
    commercial properties in the Blackstone valley.
     
    As interests shifted, and his family grew, Everett moved into furniture making at a local
    shop and then architectural millwork at a growing Worcester based company. As the
    company grew, as did his skills and responsibilities. Problem solving and
    communication skills were developed through more complex and detailed projects. He
    became the site supervisor and project manager customers sought out for their high-end
    residential and commercial projects from Maine to New Jersey, and Cape Cod to
    Vermont.
     
    In 2012, EA Custom Millwork was established, opening the latest chapter in Everett’s
    career. He endeavors to provide every customer with an enjoyable experience by
    personally overseeing all aspects of the project at hand.
    When he is not making sawdust or working with clients, Everett can be found spending
    time with his grown children, hiking, flyfishing, and sailing the coast of New England.

    Fred Gutierrez is the host of "Home Owner's Institute" , podcast, and runs the company ShepherdPMC with his partner Mike McHugh. Fred is a licensed architect who worked as a custom home builder in Boston MA. ShepherdPMC has dedicated their unique experience to help engaged owners lead the realization of their dream homes confidently and with purpose.

Is what you’ve seen what you’ll get?

I’ve been in the industry for over 35 years and find these conversations very honest and accurate.

Fred you mentioned in one of the episodes the home shows, some specifically around Austin, that show a wonderful side of remodeling. The problems I have is they don’t show accurate costs and schedules. I feel homeowners watching these programs are lead to believe, and therefore expect, similar costs and timing. A great show premise for me would be to go back to these homes, and specifically shows like Extreme Home Makeover homes, and see what those projects look like now. In short those shows are entertaining but not educational.

Looking forward to more episodes from Shepherd PMC.
