Chris started work in remodeling, helping a family friend at age 16. Learning the value of hard work early in life, and being disenchanted with the prospects of living an educated life working at a desk, he lost interest in college and continued refining his construction, and woodworking skills by learning to build and repair violin family instruments. Finally after tiring of being confined to a shop all day he decided to start a business dedicated to raising the status of craftsmen. “East Austin Carpenters, is about creating the kind of place I wanted to work growing up. I didn’t want someone else’s name on my shirt, I wanted everyone to feel like it was their business. Where people really had respect for our trade, and we could make a good living like everyone else”
