Blue Collar Project

About Blue Collar Project

Our maternal Grandfather grew up in the hills of West Virginia in the 1920s. He was one of six children being raised by a single father. Times were tough and money was tight, so he was sent to C.C. Camp. In short, The Civilian Conservation Corp was set up by the government to provide jobs building parks (if you’re not familiar with this I recommend you look it up; it’s pretty interesting). Here our grandfather learned how to operate heavy equipment among other things. He went on to own his own excavation company, which our uncles later took over.

Our father got into construction in the late 1950s at a very young age in order to help support his family. He went on to own, with a couple of partners, his own company installing infrastructure utilities until his passing in the 1970s.

Our stepfather (whose father was also in C.C. Camp) and his brothers had a home building company for years. Eventually he split off on his own doing home improvements. Today, my brother and I run that company, and both of our children have worked with us at times.

My father-in law spent many years as a carpenter and owned his own construction company. His daughter made her career in the horticulture industry.
