About Forness Construction

Just a year into my career as a Carpenter, building houses, I broke my back on a motorcycle and was left paralyzed from the waist down in a wheelchair. Not the best way to start out a career in Construction. However after 6 months in the hospital and 5 operations, I was able to learn to walk again.

A few years later after obtaining a Certification and a job in the Computer repair field (Assuming I could no longer work in construction because of my injury), I quit the job and took a job picking up scraps of wood around framed houses for $4 an hour. I wanted to be working outside and using my body, I decided not to live my life based on fears of ‘what if my back can’t handle it?’ The pain in my back eventually subsided.

Eventually I became a full fledged journeyman carpenter, I spent years framing Houses, Schools, and Commercial buildings, as well as setting forms and finishing  concrete. I was never given special treatment and I worked the same as all the able bodied men in the field. I did all the heavy lifting and working ‘up high’ the same as anyone else. I realized it’s not as much about the strength of the back as the strength of the heart.

Later I learned that the Construction Industry needs professionals that are able to manage a company in an organized way and operate with integrity in order to serve their customers well. Again the back does not come into play as much as the heart and the mind. Having the courage to go above and beyond the status quo in the Contracting field, to overcome the accepted levels of quality, service and management, and give the customer a higher level of professionalism is what our company is all about.
