Meet The Crew


On Baltimore:

“What I love about Baltimore is that there’s a lot of opportunity, and it’s a great city to live in. There’s so much going on. There’s new development. It’s a city that’s going forward, moving forward.”

On deconstruction:

“Ordinarily, you just go in and tear everything down. But we can’t do that. We have to take our time and it just shows you the value of these houses. When you drive by, if you don’t know, you just think there’s no value in them. But now, it changes the way I look at the houses, because when I drive by, I know what’s in there. And I want to go get it! The stairs, the bricks, the beams, the floors.”

On the rowhouse:

“It’s a symbol. It’s been around for a long time. I look at the brick. I know I can go across town to the West side and I’ll still have the same brick as in the East side. So all through Baltimore, the brick is very valuable. I didn’t know that at first. The floors are good hard floors. I can’t wait to see somebody clean them up, to see how good they look laying down in a new house. There’s a lot of stuff that people take for granted. Baltimore is a true working city.”

On working with the men and women of Details:

“It’s an awesome experience. We all get along. We enjoy what we do. We help each other out. We’re a team. You don’t hear “I’ around here, it’s always “we.” If somebody is struggling and another person knows, they’re gonna come help them and make the job easy. We always know that if somebody knows something more, or an easier way, or a safer way, or a faster way, we don’t have any problem learning from somebody.”
