Introducing new Active Rain member, Julia Harkola

Please take a moment to go to Julia Harkola's blog give a warm welcome to my friend and new Active Rain member. Julia and her husband, Bill, are owner/operators of H&H Builders Group Inc.  and specialize in high-quality, well-managed single-family residential projects.

Julia Harkola, Construction ManagerJulia is a smart-as-a-whip (PhD in Civil Engineering from Stanford University) Civil Engineer and Project Manager, who's down to earth, practical and truly cares about her clients and keeping their building projects running smoothly - on time and on budget. She has already written several great blog posts about construction, and will be a fresh voice here, giving us tips and information about the building process.

Check out the H&H Builders Group web site, too. You'll learn a lot about the services the Harkolas provide, their qualifications and how they run their business.

And if you're located anywhere in the mid-Peninsula or Silicon Valley, keep H&H Builders Group in mind for your renovation projects. They are an outstanding team of top-notch professionals -- and nice people, too!

Lottie, I came back after commenting/welcoming Julia's via her blog about the small bathroom remodel.  Wow, you were right.  Julia's "smarts" shine in her blog.  Thanks for introducing her to us.

Lottie that's a great way of introducing Julia, and I like your phrase "smart as a whip"

Hi Cara -- I think we can look forward to some great posts on construction matters.

Mary Kay -- thanks for commenting on Julia's blog. I hope she'll share lots of her wisdom here -- I'm going to tell her about your house-lifting series.

Bill, that phrase just popped into my head--I never know how or when stuff like that pops out! (What makes a whip smart, any way??)

Debbie -- thanks for your warm welcome to Julia.
