In his 25-year career with BCB Homes Eric has built over 100 new construction homes and has worked on over 30 major remodeling projects. One of the most challenging homes he has built while with the company was constructing a home that was on a peninsula completely surrounded by water on three sides with part of it built over the water where a boat could come in and dock beneath it. The home was over 26,000 square feet and had a number of logistical challenges that had to be overcome. The ground floor has a 14-car garage and the home had a number of unique aspects of construction.
An avid history lover, Eric also has fond memories of a large renovation he did of an old home that was built in Naples on the beach in the early 1900’s as a bed and breakfast. On this project he was able to observe some of the various construction methods and materials used throughout the history of building in Southwest Florida.
