Company Mission

 

Company Mission: To design with intelligence and build with integrity. Good design is more than just constructing a beautiful house. It is about humanizing a place, making a home out of a building, and creating comfort. Good building practice involves more than nailing pieces of wood together. It requires thoughtful planning, clear communication and a commitment to keep promises made. Our mission is to produce thoughtful designs that draw on our knowledge of building science and to bring those designs to life with the expertise and integrity that we have built over years of experience.

Our team

Joe Carry

Owner, Sales, Project Manager

 

With the birth of his first child, Joe left the hallowed halls of academia to open a small cabinet shop in the Fort George section of Northern Manhattan so that he could better support his growing family. What started as an economic necessity blossomed into a passion. He is happy now to have the opportunity to use his head, hands and heart to construct houses and do renovations that are smartly designed, finely crafted and soulfully aligned with the fundamental principles of sustainability.

 

When not knee-deep in work, Joe loves spending time cross country skiing with his family, running, and zipping about Berkshire County in his restored Miata.

Shaun Burke

Weatherization Project Manager

 

Shaun is our most experienced A.S.S. (Air Sealing Specialist), as well as our most certified. He holds BPI (Building Performance Institute) certification and is certified in the MassGreen Initiative Weatherization Program. Shaun is also involved in weatherization education and outreach, having served as a member of the task force that developed the curriculum for the MassGreen Initiative Weatherization Program, whose purpose is to train weatherization workers. Shaun is an avid reader and watcher of obscure Asian slasher films. He enjoys playing his guitar and hiking wherever he finds a trail.

Sean “Homer” Turner

Weatherization Crew

 

With two Shaun/Seans on our weatherization crew, we had to tag one of them with a nickname; and why not Homer? Homer is our most decorated A.S.S. being a consistent winner of the prestigious John Goodman World of Pain Award, given each month to the crew member who crawls into the nastiest crawlspace or tightest attic. Homer is fearless. He is the proud father of twin boys and a daughter and enjoys camping, fishing, target shooting, and going over to The Valley to watch the monster truck competitions. Asked how he feels about what can be a tough job, Homer responds, “It has its ups and downs, but it makes me feel good to help all those people out there to save on their heating bills during the winter season.”

Jolene Bull

Office Manager

 

Born and raised in Berkshire County, Jolene has always had a passion for the arts. After receiving her Associates Degree in Fine Arts she decided to go into the field of graphic design. After 15 years as a designer she is changing focus and joining her husband at Decumanus as office manager while she furthers her education in interior design. When not enjoying the outdoors with her family (husband Steve, and two beautiful children, Tristan and Kylee) Jolene also loves to landscape paint and dance.

Wes Betts

Lead Carpenter

 

Born and raised in Stamford Connecticut, Wes moved to the Berkshires in 1989.  He began his 30 years of carpentry experience under the guidance of his Italian Father-in-Law, whose accent Wes skillfully conjures whenever he feels moved to instruct crewmembers in the ways of the old timers.  His current interests include, but may not be limited to: reading World and American History, playing tennis, walking in the woods and kayaking.

Teyvonn McClary

Weatherization Crew

 

Teyvonn is a graduate of Taconic high school. Throughout his high school career, he always took advantage of the shop classes, spending as much time in the shop as he could.

 

Teyvonn is one out of eleven siblings. Always eager to help out, he has worked to help his family with expenses since he was eleven. The first job he worked was at Windswept Farm in New Lebanon, which he very much enjoyed. A few years later at fifteen he got a dishwashing job at Electra’s cafe in Lenox and within a had worked his way up to line cook, a position he still works on weekends.

 

Teyvonn is OSHA certified and has a passion for hands on working and learning new things, so he decided he wanted to learn more about weatherization and construction work. This brought him to Decumanus.
