Samcon's very first project was a two 4 plexes side by side.
I was fortunate that I grew up in the construction industry, My father and his brothers were builders since 1956.
I built this project with the help of one worker. I was 24 years old and I managed this site during the day. I would do my accounting and paperwork in the evenings and I had "open house" on Saturdays and Sundays. Since I started my construction career during a severe recession, working seven days/nights a week was normal. I enjoyed every moment. It was an extremely valuable time for me.
The project was a success thanks to a new government program offering potential clients a low interest rate of only 8.5% for 3 years.
