About the Old Dog
Old Dog Timber & Millwork
The name came from the best old dog. Bandit. He is currently a 15 year old Senile Pit Mix with Arthritis, Alzheimer’s, Glaucoma and Deafness. Dogs have a way about teaching you patience and appreciating the simpler things in life. Like taking a walk, a midday nap or a simple little treat here and there.
I started this company in order to enter a way of life that will award me more free time to actually appreciate some of these simpler things. I, Brendan, am currently a full time Construction Superintendent at a VA based General Contracting firm. Our industry often requires 65 hours or more a week and many times the job sites are 2 to 3 hours each way. You are talking 45,000 miles a year, plus 80 hours a week after you include time spent in the truck.
I have been in the construction industry since about 2004. I have had the opportunity of building children’s playgrounds valued at $500,000, residential decks & fences as cheap as $500 and even built multi-family projects that exceeded $135 Million. I have done shopping centers that exceeded $200 million and was able to work on the Washington DC National Fish Market expansion, restoration and remodel. This industry has awarded me some amazing sites and an even better education. My passion and hobby has been custom millwork, wood craft and the beauty of natural wood grain. This hobby combined with my construction background and education will hopefully allow me to turn side work into a business that will become my full-time career.
