JOHN HOURIHAN  Owner of @VintageBuilders ▪️Documenting the WHY&HOW on what I❤️ to do ▪️@Finehomebuilding Ambassador ▪️Co-Host @The.ModernCraftsman Podcast

“what’s it like starting a new company?” This is a common question through DM and at the last @jlclive w/ @finehomebuilding..... The question at @jlconline Live had “successful” in front of new company.... First, I don’t think I’ll call anything successful until 10-15yrs in.... I feel like it’s always going to be a struggle and until I’m 100% confident & established w/ systems, culture and project pipeline; “successful” is just a word.....
But, my answer to @finehomebuilding and the crowd @jlclive was “ok” at best. It wasn’t my true feelings & at the time I didn’t know how to express my thoughts & emotions about our new company venture/ adventure.
So, we have turned to video to help answer this question along w/ a lot of other questions that have been asked over the yrs. This is a sneak peak from @puffinmedia. Dude, did he capture me in my natural state.... I know I love what I do and will take any aggravation, adversity and growing pains over any other occupation!!! But, you never know what you look like while on-site, boots on the ground. This image isn’t staged. I went about my day and @puffinmedia bounced around..... I love that my energy isn’t just internal, it’s screaming to be passed along to everyone on-site. I LOVE this stuff and want the crews, designer and clients to share this same feeling. Can’t wait to bring you our new series of videos!!! Stay tuned!!!! •

And just like that we have a blank slate. Concrete & brick was removed during the week and trucked off-site w/ Tri-axle dump trucks. The hole remaining was slopped smooth for DEMO inspection.
Next we will submit plans for new HOME and stake the new home on the lot for placement and elevation. •

It takes us 8-14months to build a HOME. But, it takes 2-4hours to turn it into this...... I’m sure there was an era of tears downs prior to this era, but man everyone is knocking a house down..... Problem is, not enough guys respect the neighborhood to care about the design they replace it w/. It’s all about the PROFIT. I want to prove that you can do BOTH!

This build should be call #legendary or #perfection!!!! I’ve built a ton over the past 22 years.... A bunch have hit 60-80% of a match to my style & feel. But, this one nails it 100%. Love documenting this build and can’t wait to get into the rough mech stage and exterior finishes. •
The trick is to harness this feeling and reproduce it on every build!!!!

Everyone is going to say they are the “make it happen” in this quote. I’m all three... I WANT it, WISH it and drive to MAKE it happen!!! The only time I leave it to faith is when it’s doesn’t fall into place. That’s another quote....😉 •

You never know what part of your job will be someone’s first impression. This is a brand new neighborhood to me and obviously @vintagebuilders. Everyone will have eyes on us and probably until they get to know us it will be negative. The goal is the change their initial thoughts of us because we respect the neighborhood and it’s not just a transaction for us. We need to build here but our client needs to live here. •
This took 30mins and cost $75.... why not do it?

Couple of killer little details!! We cover all our HVAC/R vents a/ @gafroofing roof venting!!! Stops trades from using them as dust pans and we can kick the system on when we are ready.
Electrical plugs are raised up to be centered in our baseboard!! We also center all the outlets on windows for Christmas lighting.....

Loving this pic from yesterday!!!! Ridge is dead straight!!!! Couple questions from @vintagebuilders story:
How long is the ridge line: 50’+
Did you tell the crew it needs to be perfect??
This is the biggest home I’ve built. This is a statement!! It needs to be dead on. Every day I say this. This project and every step that goes into it needs to be a representation of me and my crew. Mission accomplished!!!
Roof pitch: 12/12

Let’s get @beachandbarn to 10k. Are you following Rusty and his story?!
