A Little About Me – Jeremy Mason

I’ve spent over a decade in the construction industry, specifically focused on residential home building.

There’s something incredibly rewarding about turning raw materials into a person’s dream home, a sanctuary where memories are made.

This experience has given me a well-rounded perspective on what makes a house not just a building but a home.

I understand the nuances of construction techniques, materials, and design, as well as the emotional and psychological impact that a well-built space can have on its inhabitants.

A Global Perspective

But my education didn’t stop at the construction site. I’ve had the unique privilege of living in over 12 cities around the globe (mostly US), each for a period of three months or more.

From the bustling streets of New York City to the tranquil canals of Amsterdam, from the historical richness of Rome to the modern marvel that is Tokyo, each city has taught me something new about what it means to “live well.”

My varied experiences have enriched my views on homebuilding and urban living, offering me insights into how different cultures approach home and community. This exposure has equipped me with a unique lens through which I view the concept of ‘home,’ extending beyond four walls and a roof.
