About Us
Karl began setting tiles as a teenager helping his dad, Larry, on the job. His dad was a Fireman who did tile work on the side in San Diego. Karl grew up in Del Mar, graduated from UC Berkeley in 1991 followed by a two and half year around the world surfing adventure.

After completing a year of graduate school at HSU in Arcata, he decided that he wanted to become a contractor and work for himself instead.

He began purchasing fixer-uppers in 1994, everything from single-family homes and multi family properties to a commercial historic building in Old Town Eureka.
