#185 Michael Ferreira from Rose Gold Homes & Design a custom builder in his twenties
Carlito is back on the mic, it’s been over a year since he was last heard on the show, nice to have him back and sharing so much about The Construction Life. Carlito will be on future shows, and he will be part of an event happening in November, stay tuned to learn more.
On with the show, Michael from Rose Gold Homes & Design, 29 years old, a custom home builder since he was 22. He set out a plan to make his business a successful brand and it’s working. We open the show discussing delays, schedules and covid, Michael still tries to keep everything on schedule and he’s booking material months in advance, we must. Michael does have that thought, he thinks some clients might be thinking, what’s this kid think he’s doing building custom homes at 23 years old? It’s never been brought up and it has never discouraged Michael from building and building a brand.
Interesting that Michael has an older crew, older than himself, his youngest would be the electrician at 33 years old, while the rest of the trades are 40 and up, he’s having a hard time finding younger trades with the skills his clients are asking for. Michael is using a headhunting service to find more trades for his projects. He wants to expand and continue to grow but he needs the trades to do so. Once day he would love to renovate a resort home somewhere very warm.
The show format is back along with Carlito, we have Construction Bone To Pick, History with Manny, OBC Talk and Green Book with Carlito.
Carlito and Manny get right back into opinions shared about HGTV since Michael brings up the fact that he was asked to be on a show, Manny offers up a few of his thoughts. We discuss the possibility of 4-day weeks and having 3-day weekends and the conversation becomes very interesting. The guys discuss side hustles, helping with employees with side hustles, its important that all employees and employers have the conversations and make it work with both sides, no need to keep it a secret and let the GC have a bad day because the employee called in sick to handle a side hustle.
Towards the end of the show, we hammer some great talk over Tarion, home warranties, Houzz, and HGTV makes another visit with a 5-gallon pail of something.
