If your building or renovating a home in the Bay Area and are installing walls in your home, you might think “can’t be that hard to do right?” You’ve seen it in the movies or on TV, maybe even in real life. You nail in some studs, put up some drywall and you’re done. Right? What can be so hard about a vertical structure that supports weight and keeps out the rain? I hate to burst your bubble if you wanted to try DIY home walls, but there is much for a Construction Manager to consider if you want walls that will last and prevent things like leakage and mold.Read More
About Richard Wodehouse
In the fall of 2018, we encountered serious issues with our GC who was overcharging and submitting illegal change orders on the big home remodel project in San Francisco. Luckily, we found Richard Wodehouse who brought his extensive expertise in the construction business and a spark of humor to this process. We ended up terminating our relationship with the GC in the middle of the framing stage when no other GCs wanted to take responsibility for other contractor’s mistakes.
However, with Richard’s help and under his supervision we were able to hire a crew to finish framing and streamline the process of subcontracting for the interior work. Additionally, he gave us guidance on structural issues, framing, and waterproofing. Without doubt, Richard’s role in getting our project back on track can not be overstated. He even helped us to restore our faith in the profession.
