Hi Carl, I really enjoyed reading your post/thread. What do you contribute to the fact that most of your clients/customers are not local? How do you get to that point as a builder living in small town America? Do you have to build for someone bigger like Ibis to get the noteraity? Most "successful" artists/craftspeople get their big break somehow. What do you consider your big break or has it just been perserverance over the years?
I also read that sometimes you take on a builder for a seminar. I have been thinking about contacting you for something like this this before I read this. I will send you an e-mail to discuss this. Thanks for what you do.
