Meet Scott has been working for SW Builders since 2016 and has been in the carpentry field for 36 years as of 2019. Scott is also a License Michigan Contractor. Scott has been married to “his bride” Julie for 30 years as of 2019. They have 4 adult children (3 daughters and a son) who all live in the West Michigan area.
If you ask Scott why he got into carpentry he’ll tell you, “My love for wood and carpentry started at a young age when I got to work along side my neighbor Grandpa Joe”. If you ask Scott what his favorite thing to do as a carpenter he’ll say, “Staircases…..well, really anything out of wood”. Scott also has another nickname around town to those that know him, and that’s the “candy man”. You’ll always find a handful of white and red stripped butter mints in his pocket that he hands out to anyone, or leaves them on your car windshield wipers, on your desk, everywhere. I asked what started him carrying all the mints? He said, “I used to work for an old grump when I was younger. One day I gave him a mint…..and he smiled. I’ve been carrying them around every day since then trying to bring a smile to someone”.
When Scott isn’t working you can find him tucked away inside his “post card room” at home (yes, I said room). Scott also enjoys collecting antiques or anything else that is unique to the West Michigan Area that is old or has a story. You can also find “his bride” and himself kayaking on a small lake or river during the Summer months together enjoying the outdoors.
