Get to know Brian and Heather Halliday
Hello my name is Brian Halliday and my wife of 17 years is Heather Halliday. Since I was a young boy I have been around construction sites. My father started as a cabinet maker then he opened his own small construction and architectural firm. He was also a licensed General Contractor in Southern California. My childhood is filled with memories of kitchen remodels, home renovations and complete additions. One very memorable job was the addition and kitchen/bath remodel for Barry White. What a house that was! Needless to say, I followed in my Dad's footsteps.
After the Navy I met my wife Heather and began working for my Dad. I began with demolition, digging footings and general jobsite clean up, essentailly being an all around general laborer. I didn't receive any preferential treatment because I was the Boss' son, I literally started from the bottom and worked my way up! Eventually I became the lead field superintendent and project manager for Edwin James and Associates. I was responsible for projects being built according to plans, ordering materials/take-offs, managing sub-contractors, working day to day with the home owners, quality control, meeting with building inspectors and making sure projects were completing in a timely manner. The trades that I perssonally excelled at were; rough/structural framing, drywall, finish carpentry and tile. I have also worked in several other trades throughout my career including; stucco, concrete (flatwork and foundations), window and door installation, flooring (hardwood and tile), cabinet installation, etc. I always enjoyed building and working with my hands and seeing the finished product always gave me a certain satisfaction, I guess the apple didn't fall far from the tree!
Several years later I obtained my General Contractors license and my wife and I started our own home improvement and home building company. We've worked well together running our Construction business and our family for the last 17 years.
