Hear about the challenges and rewards of being a builder focused on sustainable, resilient construction in a region of the country not traditionally known for energy-efficient homes.
In this special series of episodes of the FHB Podcast, Rob Yagid, executive director of Keep Craft Alive and former Fine Homebuilding editor, shares his conversations with some of the most talented and dedicated people in the world of residential design and construction.
In this episode, Rob talks to Travis Brungardt, a partner in the Kansas City-based design-build and remodeling company Catalyst Construction. Travis has become a major force in the building community, not just by incorporating solid building-science principles into the construction of the homes he builds, but also in rallying people in the building community and beyond to spread the word about the benefits and methods of building more sustainable and energy-efficient homes.
Keep Craft Alive is an initiative powered by Fine Homebuilding to bring awareness to the skills gap in the building industry and the rich professional opportunities that exist in the trades.
The SkillsUSA #KeepCraftAlive Scholarship Fund provides tuition money to students pursuing a career in the trades. You can make a tax-deductible donation to the fund, or buy a #KeepCraftAlive T-shirt to both support the fund and show your support.
