Every home our clients build has a story. Every two-by-four and every load of concrete has an impact on someone’s life. Every brick has meaning. I smile every time I look at the drywall in my house.

OK, let me back up and explain the whole drywall thing. I am married to my high school sweetheart. After we had been dating for about eight years, I was pretty sure it was going to happen. We were engaged, but we hadn’t set a date. I was getting tired of the delays.

Along the way I had earned my bachelor’s and master’s degrees. I was on my way to becoming what I am today — a Certified Public Accountant and Chartered Global Management Accountant. Anyway, we had agreed we wouldn’t set a date until we had all of the drywall up in our soon-to-be house. My husband was the general contractor. I came home from work one day and was thrilled to see that stacks of drywall had been delivered. The wind went out of my sails when he told me it would take about 60 days to hang it all.

After a long weekend of worrying about yet another delay, I went to work. When I came home Monday, my husband was in the yard working in an excavator. He asked me to run inside and grab a tool for him. When I did, I saw he had hired a crew and all the drywall was up!

I know every windowpane, every floorboard and every piece of furniture matters to the families you serve. That is why I want to do everything I can to keep these assets we manage together as strong as possible. Contact Travois today if there is anything I can do to help you take care of your drywall and all the other precious assets under your care.
