Part 3 of: Mike the Pole Barn Guru… Unemployment Line?
Back in the day…over a decade ago, I had a good friend who had created a website and was making a good living selling one single aftermarket engine part for Dodge pickups. Now this was back when most people did not have internet service, and those who did, got it at the crawling speed of dial up.
I was familiar with the ‘net, as my former construction business, Momb Steel Buildings had a website as early as the mid-1990’s (for the handful of people besides Bill Gates and Steve Jobs who could access it then).
Pointing out the success of my friend, I convinced my lovely bride pole buildings could be sold via the internet.
When I was in architecture school, my dream was to design practical, high quality, affordable buildings. Somehow, this was just not a fit with the professors I had who were busy designing edifices to themselves.
When Hansen Pole Buildings started, I wanted the “fun” job….working with clients to design their ideal dream buildings.
Long ago, I figured out – it is “All About the Building”…design pole buildings which best meet the balance of the client’s wants, needs, dreams, hopes, desires and budget. As long as those things were taken care of, everything else fell into place. Clients got great pole buildings, at prices they could afford, and we made a little bit of money on lots and lots of buildings.
The best part for me is when clients send me pole building photos …enjoying their new building.
For the most part, I (with a little assist from technology) worked myself out of my other positions at Hansen Buildings.
Time to get back to where it all started…designing YOUR ideal dream building.
As we love to say at Hansen Buildings: Your Building. Your Way.
Now THIS is my idea of having fun!
