“Mike is a family tradition in our home”.
“All four of my children were raised in this wonderful old house built shortly after the San Francisco earthquake and fire. As they grew up, so, too, did our living requirements, a basic necessity that made me expand my role as a mother…and gave a whole new meaning to the term, ‘home maker’. I had to become the resident remodeler.
Which is how we started a family tradition with Mike.
It went like this…I’d get an idea maybe about converting part of the garage into a study room for the kids and I’d call Mike. He would come over, listen to my vision and tell me how ‘doable’ it was. Then we’d discuss the options on how to ‘do it’. That’s when he would be very clear with me and verbalize a realistic picture of my idea. I absolutely knew whether I wanted to proceed or not and what it would take if I did.
This has been going on for about 20 – 25 years through about seven satisfying projects. So now at dinner when I casually mention a new idea to the kids, their traditional come back is: ‘Oh, call Mike’.
Of course, I will.”
