When it comes to laying the groundwork for his Merit Homes building projects, the buck stops with Chris. For more than 11 years, he’s been doing whatever it takes to prep for tradesmen and complete each house to specifications—from supervising subcontractors to performing hands-on tasks. Prior to joining Merit, Chris learned to multi-task and solve problems on the fly while working as a restaurant kitchen manager.
Chris loves learning new skills, and helps the field operations manager with research and development, such as field testing new, greener building materials and technology. At home, Chris and his wife keep busy raising two energetic boys, six and four. On occasion, he also finds time to hike and fish the Northwest’s bountiful trails and lakes.
