Kelly enjoyed most of his youth and adolescence exploring the Orleans area. From an early age, he’s had a passion for hands-on, building, and “tinkering”. It all began with tree forts, go-karts, skateboard jumps , as well as helping build decks and fences with his father, who was also handy with lumber and renovations projects. As a result, he could often be found tackling his own renovations in his own homes.
He began his career in the trades, in the late 80’s, working as a Carpenter’s apprentice at a local family owned contracting company. After starting a Family of his own in the early 90’s, He returned to college to pursue a computer programming curriculum, and sought out a 17yr career at IBM, holding various technical support positions. After the economic downturn in 2008, he took the opportunity to return to an old trade and passion; designing / creating / building, and joined his Father in his renovation endeavours, as well as operating his own renovation business.
Kelly enjoys a challenge, strives for quality and results, believes in teamwork, honesty, integrity, and forging new relationships, and most importantly, customer satisfaction. Kelly currently resides in Bell’s Corners with his Wife. He has 5 children and one grandchild. In his off-time, you’ll find him relaxing with his family, camping at his seasonal campground outside Perth, golfing, fishing, billiards, and playing with technology. He’s also had a passion for music from a young age, and enjoys playing guitar in his home recording studio.
