Our clients, Kristian & Jaenette Coyne, along with Andy, were interviewed by the Colorado Springs Business Journal about the new home we’re building for the Coynes. This is also the home we’ve entered in the 2014 Parade of Homes. Here’s an excerpt:
“This is the busiest we’ve been in a decade,” Stauffer said. “Smart subcontractors and tradespeople have hired new people. The economy had a lot of subcontractors in incubation mode. A lot of businesses scaled down to just the boss and a few key guys. Now there are new faces on every job site.” Stauffer said one unintended benefit of the Black Forest fire is that many of those working in the community also live there. “There are young people who’ve grown up in Black Forest who are getting into the construction trade,” he said. “Workers are tight. Gone are the days when you could call a subcontractor and say ‘I have work, can you start next week?’ I have to be sensitive in scheduling workloads. The important thing is developing relationships over the years. My loyal subcontractors are coming through.” Stauffer said he expects the current pace to continue for at least the next year.
