Jason Harris Chosen as Vice-President for Pioneer Valley BNI Chapter

Jason was recently elected to the position of Vice-President for the Pioneer Valley Chapter of BNI (Business Network International), the largest referral organization in the world!

Safe at Home

“Accidents happen all the time,” Jason Harris said. And sometimes, they cause life changes that echo far beyond the injury itself.

Jason Harris Earns Certified Aging In Place (CAPS) Designation

What is CAPS you ask?  Well it’s not what you wear on your head, at least not what I am talking about here.

We are proud to be one of the very few carpentry remodeling companies in Western Massachusetts that has one or more Certified Aging in Place Specialists working within our company.

This certification involves three classes that go into great detail about the aging in place process and how we can accomodate our customers that would like to age in place. In order to stay certified, one must also attain C.E.U. or continuing education credits every two years.

To learn more about the Certified Aging In Place Specialist designation, head over to the National Association of Home Builders' website, where it explains the CAPS program.
