Site Superintendent Brian Hering | Meet the Team


Brian has been with Hammer & Hand off-and-on for a cumulative 7 yrs. A self-taught carpenter, Brian utilized to be a mold maker for historical and ornamental architecture with a local organization termed Architectural Castings (formerly Architectural Reproductions). He fell into remodeling throughout the 2008 economical collapse and uncovered that he was rather adept at it. He continued honing his abilities and creating knowledge over the next 10 years and a 50 percent, for the duration of which he learned Hammer & Hand by the friend of a neighbor.

Brian is at this time wrapping up a undertaking that has been his favourite of the final 7 many years. With a distinct fondness for revitalizing properties crafted in the 1920s by the 1950s, he thrived as Website Superintendent of this Historic Portland Remodel. Residences of the period present loads of exceptional issues but also have a ton to admire in the craftsmanship of their architecture. The job demanded substantial upgrades, which includes transferring a stairway, rerouting a challenging HVAC technique, and lifting a sagging flooring that had declined a entire 3 inches on a single side of the century-previous home.

“It’s an arduous and laborious career,” suggests the cordial and upbeat Hering, “That said, I tend to forget all that with all the appreciation acquired from clients, buddies, and family.”

Outside of work, Hering is an avid comic e-book collector and self-proclaimed “video recreation junky,” and perhaps unsurprisingly, a large LEGO fanatic.

Brian can be seen hosting our current Historic Portland Transform movie sequence on YouTube. Additional episodes are dropping weekly, so head about to see the outstanding diamond-in-the-rough transform into a magnificent, modernized household.
