Chad Schroeder

Head of Design, Drafting & IT

After some time away for college, Chad returned to his hometown of Olympia and began looking for work.  He picked up a job as a construction laborer to pay his bills and enrolled in flight school to be a helicopter pilot.  Chad’s employers recognized his abilities with computers and asked him to help out in the office where he began drawing house plans between his days doing hands on work in the field.  The combination of field experience and 10 years of drafting custom homes has placed Chad in charge of designing, drafting and pricing out all our custom home projects.  He has also built and programmed custom, wireless, solar powered, jobsite cameras.  He maintains the cameras and their associated services/programming along with all the computers and software used throughout our office.  Chad has also received his private helicopter pilot license, and is instrument rated.  In his spare time, he enjoys working in his shop, programming personal projects, and taking long motorcycle trips looking for new sights, experiences, and great food.
