Rick Carbaugh, our company's founder, got his start in the construction trade in 1976 when he began as a laborer for a contractor engaged in home building. He worked his way up through the ranks as an estimator, then made a lateral move to go to work as a truss designer in a manufacturing plant.
Rick then spent eight years developing software designed to give home builders the tools they needed to better plan and manage their projects. An engineering background afforded him the ability to learn about the practical aspects of working with load-bearing structures. He also explored the practicalities of kitchen design in terms of ergonomics: why things should go where they do in a functional workspace.
The construction site workplace kept drawing Rick back to hands-on work: he did some light commercial projects in strip mall properties before finally deciding to start his own general contracting firm in 2002. Since then, he has expanded his company's capabilities from subcontracting and project management to full-scale home building contractor services.
Rick considers himself fortunate to be doing exactly what he wants to do in life, and he looks forward to working with you. Call Rick L. Carbaugh Builders today at 717-729-5573, and let's get started on your construction project.
