He is a certified Building Analyst and Envelope Professional through the Building Performance Institute.

George developed his knowledge of older homes and construction solutions from practical, hands-on experience as a carpenter and research into current building science. At an early age he was introduced to renovation and construction by working as a carpenter’s helper during the summer for his family’s business. His woodworking experience and attention to detail came from his time working for a historic pipe organ builder in the Pacific Northwest. He has also trained as a carpenter with various contractors in the Baltimore area.
