SALTILLO, Miss. (WTVA) – Homebuilding and remodeling is an industry unlike any other.
One local builder, Kenneth Estes, has been building homes professionally for more than 20 years.
“Growing up, I never wanted normal toys; it was always something handy," he said.
Estes decided that college wasn’t for him and began working different jobs until he and his wife started Estes Home Building & Remodeling.
The company helps customers walk into their dream homes, and making those dreams reality takes a group of skilled workers.
Although you don’t have to go to school to build homes, you do have to be certified.
Estes encourages any high school student or a college student stuck on what to do next, to consider this industry, or learn a trade.
