Keaton Bridal

Keaton Bridal

Carpenter

 
Keaton jumped into the workforce straight out of high school, first working for a company his father managed and then doing some plumbing. But it was when he tried his hand at carpentry that he knew he’d found the right fit.

Keaton received his training in carpentry from BCIT. He went on to work at a high-rise framing company and a small, family-owned renovation company before landing at Alair.

At Alair Homes, he found that perfect balance between the professionalism and experience that a larger company has to offer and the personalized service and attention to detail he came to expect from a smaller company.

Keaton says that his favourite work moment is seeing the joy on his clients’ faces when he’s created something they’ve always dreamt of. In his off hours Keaton can be found watching or playing sports, hiking and camping, or meeting the lads for a jam session.
