Your Cart is Empty

Nate Boyd has been a carpenter for most of his life. It started as a summer job in college and grew into a career. After years of working for someone else, he decided it was time to go out on his own and establish Boyd Builders.

Like everything, it was a learning experience. “When you are working for yourself there is no one else to blame your mistakes on.” Boyd relishes the freedom and accountability that comes with running your own business.


 

One of the most important things has been finding the right people to work with. Boyd now works with his two brothers and a close family friend. “I trust them, and they trust me. When I’m not on site they act as an extension of me.”

Boyd enjoys working in the building industry and all the challenges and opportunities that it comes with. “There are a lot of things I love about carpentry. I like being able to start from nothing and have the vision to be able to build something from scratch. So you could start out with just a foundation at 8 in the morning and by 5 in the afternoon you could have something that you created with your own hands.”

One of the biggest challenges in the industry is that there are often no straightforward solutions. There are many ways to build a house, and each situation can be different. “I like the challenge of problem-solving. Building is just a series of problem-solving and I like having to figure something out. We have to be creative and adapt to every situation. And at the end of the day, you realize that you can achieve a lot more than you thought.”
